Seven clinical isolates and the ATCC strain 35405 ofTreponema denticola, obtained from human periodontal pockets, were studied for peptidase activity with several chromogenic compounds as substrates. The cell sonicates of all strains hydrolyzed phenylazobenzyloxycarbonyl-l-prolyl-l-leucyl-glycyl-l-prolyl-d-arginine (a collagenase substrate), azocasein, and the 2-naphthylamines ofl-proline,l-hydroxyproline,l-pyrrolidine, and benzoyl-l-arginine, but the rates of hydrolysis varied considerably… Expand
