Recent evidence implicates Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans in the etiology of localized juvenile periodontitis. This paper reviews the morphological, biochemical and serological charcteristics of A. actinomycetemcomitans, evidence incriminating it as a periodontopathogen, its importance in human nonoral infections, and virulence factors which may be involved in the pathogenesis of A. actinomycetemcomitans infections. A. actinomycetemcomitans is a non-motile, gram-negative, capnophilic… CONTINUE READING
