Treponemes are associated with major oral diseases such as apical and marginal periodontitis. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is regarded as an important virulence factor in these diseases. It is unclear whether LPS is present in oral treponemes. Therefore, the present study was undertaken to examine if a common oral treponeme-Treponema denticola-possesses LPS. A modified Westphal method (phenol water-ethanol-hexane extraction) was used to extract LPS-like material from T. denticola, reference strain… CONTINUE READING
