Objective. To study the antibacterial activity of lysostaphin against staphylococci various species, as well as its effect on the viability of Vero cells.
Materials and Methods. Lysostaphin was obtained by genetic engineering. Purification of the protein was carried out on SP-sepharose, the purity was determined by electrophoresis in PAGE by Lamley. The susceptibility to lysostaphin of 9 species 175 strains of staphylococci was studied. Identification was performed by MALDI-TOF MS, antibiotic susceptibility by EUCAST (v.
