  • Coagulase [r]: Enzymes that cause coagulation in plasma by forming a complex with human prothrombin, and produced by certain bacteria including Staphylococcus species and Yersinia pestis. Staphylococci produce two types of coagulase: Staphylocoagulase, a free coagulase that produces true clotting of plasma, and Staphylococcal clumping factor, a bound coagulase in the cell wall that induces clumping of cells in the presence of fibrinogen.

  • Gram stain [r]: A selective stain for the microscopic examination of bacteria; those with a significant peptoglycan component of their cell walls will be colored violet while those without are colored red; these have important clinical correlations [e]
  • Antibiotic resistance [r]: The development of resistance to an antibiotic in an organism originally susceptible to it [e]

  • Staphylococcus aureus [r]: Facultatively anaerobic, Gram-positive pathogenic coccus capable of producing suppurative lesions, furunculosis, pyemia, osteomyelitis, food poisoning, and may be resistant to commonly used antibiotics. [e]
