Abstract

Staphylococcus aureus RN6390 presents a diauxic growth in milk, due to amino acid limitation. Inactivation of the oligopeptide permease Opp3 (dedicated to the nitrogen nutrition of the strain) not only affects the growth of the strain but also results in reduced expression levels of three major extracellular proteases.
