OBJECTIVE To study the effect of calcium hydroxide solutions at different pH values on the cell-surface hydrophobicity of starved Enterococcus faecalis. METHODS E. faecalis in starvation were harvested and incubated in freshly prepared calcium hydroxide solutions at the pH values ranging from 7.3 to 10.3 for 15 min or 60 min. The cell-surface… (More)
