(1,2) There is an apparent association between the pathogenesis of MRSA strains and the expression of virulence factors such as cell surface components (e.g., collagen-binding protein, clumping factor, fibronectin-binding protein, and elastin-binding protein) and secreted factors (e.g., staphylokinase, toxic shock syndrome toxin-1, hemolysin, Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL), exfoliative toxins (eta, etb), staphylococcal enterotoxins, and lipase).
All isolates were characterized for SCCmec types (I-V) and subtype of SCCmecIV (IVa, IVb, IVc and IVd), (4) agr polymorphism (I-IV), (5) and for the presence of 14 virulence genes, including nine enterotoxins (sea, seb, sec, sed, see, seg,seh, sei,sej), two exfoliatins (eta and etb), the toxic shock syndrome toxin (tsst), Panton-Valentine leukocidin (pvl), and icaA.

Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL) is one of the most important virulence factors of S.
