OBJECTIVES This study was designed to evaluate the synergistic antibacterial effect of xylitol and ursolic acid (UA) against oral biofilms in vitro. MATERIALS AND METHODS S. mutans UA 159 (wild type), S. mutans KCOM 1207, KCOM 1128 and S. sobrinus ATCC 33478 were used. The susceptibility of S. mutans to UA and xylitol was evaluated using a broth(More)
This study was designed to characterize the physicochemical and molecular properties of Staphylococcus aureus cells treated with nisin, allyl isothiocyanate (AITC), thymol, eugenol, and polyphenol during the transition from planktonic to biofilm growth as measured by hydrophobicity, auto-aggregation, and differential gene expression. Thymol exhibited the(More)
