Abstract

Staphylococcus aureus is a major human pathogen of increasing importance as a result of the spread of antibiotic resistance. It causes a wide range of diseases and survives outside the host by virtue of its adaptability and resistance to environmental stress. Several cellular components involved in Staphylococcus aureus stress resistance have begun to be characterized.
