Abstract

In this study, a methanolic extract derived from a marine organism was investigated for the effect on the growth of MRSA resistant to b-lactam antibiotics. The nucleotide sequence changes of essential genes inclusive of mecA, mecR1, 16sRNA, mprF and msR of the inhibited MRSA strains were determined. A potential antibacterial peptide with activity on permeabilising the membrane of MRSA strains was investigated through a cellular bioassay.
