Biological context of Streptococcus sobrinus


Anatomical context of Streptococcus sobrinus

  • Four hybrid cell lines secreting monoclonal antibodies (McAbs) against glucosyltransferase synthesizing water-insoluble glucan (GTase-I) were generated by fusion of myeloma cells (P3U1) with splenocytes from mice immunized with GTase-I from Streptococcus sobrinus B13-N [21].
  • Larger disks were suspended in brain-heart infusion medium containing 2 x 10(4) colony-forming units/mL Streptococcus sobrinus (10 mL, 2 wt% sucrose, 24 hours) to measure bacterial adherence to the adhesive; adherent cells were removed from the surface with 1 N NaOH, and the optical density of the cells was measured at 550 nanometers [22].
  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate the cytotoxic effects of sodium fluoride (NaF) on three different cell lines and the antibacterial potency on Streptococcus sobrinus [23].
