Difference in the xylitol sensitivity of acid production among Streptococcus mutans strains and the biochemical mechanism.


Xylitol inhibits the glycolysis and growth of Streptococcus mutans, but to different degrees among strains. Thus, we studied the biochemical mechanism through which the inhibition varies, using S. mutans strains ATCC 31989, NCTN 10449, and NCIB 11723, which are highly sensitive, moderately sensitive, and resistant to xylitol, respectively, under strictly… (More)
