    • RelevanceStreptococcus mutans is a Gram positive, facultatively anaerobic bacteria commonly found in the human oral cavity and is a significant contributor to tooth decay. S. mutans plays a major role in tooth decay, metabolizing sucrose to lactic acid. The acidic environment created in the mouth by this process is what causes the highly mineralized tooth enamel to be vulnerable to decay. S. mutans is one of a few specialized organisms equipped with receptors for adhesion to the surface of teeth. Sucrose is utilized by S. mutans to produce a sticky, extracellular, dextran based polysaccharide that allows them to cohere to each other forming plaque. S. mutans produces dextran via the enzyme dextransucrase using sucrose as a substrate.

    This anti-Streptococcus mutans antibodies recognizes serotype C.

    I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

    This antibody was made from antiserum which is developed in rabbit by using S. mutans whole cell as immunogen. This antibody is specific to Streptococcus mutans (serotype C) and streptococcus sobrinus (serotype d). Thus, I do not think that there is an...
