Scientists decipher a mechanism in serious

Figure 1. The cell envelope sugar polymer wall teichoic acid (WTA) of Staphylococcus aureus plays a role in the development of skin infections. Particularly, in the case of infections with the highly aggressive, so-called “Community-Associated Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus” (CA-MRSA) WTA leads to strong immune reaction because of  these higher WTA content found in CA-MRSA compared to less aggressive S. aureus strains. This immune reaction accelerates the formation of an abscess, which should normally restrict the infection, but, in the case of CA-MRSA, plays a role in causing the infection to become more serious.

Sugar polymers on the outer cell envelope of Staphylococcus au-reus mean that the disease progresses in a particularly aggressive way – and this suggests a starting point for possible treatment
