*Strains isolated from cows with subclinical mastitis, Hungary, January 2002–December 2004.
†See Figure for DNA analysis. Strain no. 29509 was not included in the DNA analysis; thus, no strain no. was assigned.
‡Reaction pattern with 100× routine test dilution (RTD) methicillin-resistant Staphyloccocus aureus phages (7). +, positive in mecA PCR; –,
negative in mecA PCR.
