Isolation and properties of a linoleic acid-resistant mutant of Staphylococcus aureus

J Gen Microbiol. 1980 May;118(1):267-70. doi: 10.1099/00221287-118-1-267.

Abstract

A linoleic acid-resistant mutant (Lar-2) of Staphylococcus aureus NCTC 8325 has been isolated and partially characterized. The resistance of the mutant may be due to an increased capacity of the bacterial membrane to incorporate linoleic acid.
