These strains appear to be defective for the biosynthesis of one or more of the following compounds: menadione, heme, or thiamine. These compounds are required for biosynthesis of electron transport chain component; hence, staphylococcal SCVs are deficient in electron transport. SCVs may represent a stringent response in which a spore-like form allows this pathogen to survive within the host when the conditions are unfavorable. The clinical importance of SCV isolates is that they may appear susceptible, yet clinical therapy may fail.
