Abstract

Lipolytic and proteolytic activities were estimated in coagulase-positive and coagulase-negative strains of human origin. Several different substrates were used for determination of these activities. Staphylococcus aureus strains were very frequently lipolytic (95%) and proteolytic (87.5%). Among coagulase-negative strains, 85.4% were proteolytic and 10.25% exhibited lipolytic activity.
