An investigation into the use of restriction endonuclease analysis for the study of transmission of mutans streptococci.

Abstract

Restriction endonuclease analysis (REA) was performed on the total cellular DNA from each of 396 strains of mutans streptococci (1) to determine its potential usefulness for the study of transmission of the organism and (2) to document the proportions and variety of strains harbored by members of a small group of families. The DNA was digested with… (More)
