Abstract

Staphylococcus aureus is an opportunistic pathogen that is the major cause of hospital- and community acquired infections. The misuse of antibiotics is the most prominent reason for bacterial resistance and resulted in the emergence of Methicillin Resistant S. aureus (MRSA) strains. For these reasons, studying horizontal gene transfer systems in S. aureus is highly important to elucidate the molecular systems underlying the acquisition of resistance and toxin genes, and thereby reducing the risk of a post antibiotic era. Here, the most recent literature is reviewed to elucidate the recently acquired knowledge about horizontal gene transfer of mobile genetic elements by S. aureus.
