Annotationinfection = STAPHYLOCOCCAL INFECTIONS on data form; staphylococcal clumping factor = COAGULASE (see X refs there); DF: STAPH
Scope NoteA genus of gram-positive, facultatively anaerobic, coccoid bacteria. Its organisms occur singly, in pairs, and in tetrads and characteristically divide in more than one plane to form irregular clusters. Natural populations of Staphylococcus are membranes of warm-blooded animals. Some species are opportunistic pathogens of humans and animals.
