Addition of 5% xylitol to growing cultures of Streptococcus mutans OMZ 176 reduced the amount of extractable glycerol-phosphate polymers in these cells compared to S. mutans cultures grown in medium with 5% glucose added. The glycerol-phosphate polymers were extracted from the cells by hot phenol-water-extraction, and separated by column chromatography. Lipoteichoic acid (LTA) was identified by indirect haemagglutination tests and lipid analysis. The amount of LTA extracted from the cells or… CONTINUE READING
