Acid production by Actinomyces viscosus of root surface caries and non-caries origin during glycogen synthesis and degradation at different pH levels.

Abstract

Actinomyces viscosus strains, freshly isolated from root surface caries lesions and intact root surfaces, were studied for their glycogen synthetic and degradative activities at pH 4.5, 5.0, and 7.0 in a pH-stat. At all three pH levels, root caries origin of A. viscosus synthesized up to three times as much glycogen compared to non-root caries origin. Since… (More)
