OMIZ-W68, a chemically defined medium that contains no long-chain fatty acids and yet supports in vitro proliferation of a wide range of fastidious oral anaerobes, is described. The type strains of Treponema denticola, Treponema lecithinolyticum, Treponema maltophilum, Treponema pectinovorum, Treponema socranskii, and an as yet unpublished canine Treponema species could be propagated indefinitely in this medium with sugar supplements for the saccharolytic species. Analysis of the cellular fatty… Expand
Porphyromonas gingivalis and Treponema denticola Exhibit Metabolic Symbioses
TLDR
Data show P. gingivalis and T. denticola respond metabolically to the presence of each other with T. Denticola displaying responses that help explain enhanced virulence of co-infections. Expand
Characterization of Treponema denticola pyrF encoding orotidine-5'-monophosphate decarboxylase.
The Treponema denticola ATCC 35405 genome annotation contains most of the genes for de novo pyrimidine biosynthesis. To initiate characterization of pyrimidine synthesis in Treponema, we focused onExpand
CharacterizationofTreponemadenticola pyrF encodingorotidine-5 0-monophosphate decarboxylase
The Treponema denticola ATCC 35405 genome annotation contains most of the genes for de novo pyrimidine biosynthesis. To initiate characterization of pyrimidine synthesis in Treponema, we focused onExpand
Differentiation of oral bacteria in in vitro cultures and human saliva by secondary electrospray ionization – mass spectrometry
TLDR
This method has the ability to identify individual metabolites of microbial pathogens in a complex medium such as saliva with enhanced ion intensity compared to two healthy controls. Expand
Uncultivated Tannerella BU045 and BU063 are slim segmented filamentous rods of high prevalence but low abundance in inflammatory disease-associated dental plaques.
TLDR
Data demonstrate that Tannerella phylotypes BU045, BU063, 127+ and 997+ consist of long slim rods with segments, which, with respect to FISH stainability, often behaved as independent units, which seems to exclude any relevance for the pathogenesis of periodontal diseases. Expand
Treponema denticola interactions with host proteins
  • J. Fenno
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of oral microbiology
  • 2012
TLDR
Progress in the molecular analysis of interactions between T. denticola and host proteins is reviewed here, with particular emphasis on the characterization of surface-expressed and secreted proteins of T. Denticola involved in interactions with host cells, extracellular matrix components, and components of the innate immune system. Expand
Saliva as the Sole Nutritional Source in the Development of Multispecies Communities in Dental Plaque.
TLDR
This chapter aims to provide an overview of the key metabolic requirements of some well-characterized oral bacteria, and the nutrient webs that promote the growth of multispecies communities and underpin the pathogenicity of dental plaque for both dental caries and periodontitis. Expand
Advancement of the 10-species subgingival Zurich Biofilm model by examining different nutritional conditions and defining the structure of the in vitro biofilms
TLDR
The use of 50% of heat-inactivated human serum used in the improved growth medium resulted in significantly thicker and more stable biofilms, and the quantitative representation of the used species represents the in vivo community of periodontitis patients much closer than inBiofilms grown in the two media with less or no human serum. Expand
New growth media for oral bacteria.
TLDR
New growth media have been designed for the iron-controlled co-cultures of three oral bacteria, and efficiently promote both planktonic and biofilm cultures of Porphyromonas gingivalis, Treponema denticola and Streptococcus gordonii. Expand
In vitro modeling of host-parasite interactions: the 'subgingival' biofilm challenge of primary human epithelial cells
TLDR
An experimental in vitro model to study processes taking place in the gingival crevice during the initiation of inflammation is developed, taking into account that the microbial challenge derives from a biofilm community and not from planktonically cultured bacterial strains. Expand

Growth of Porphyromonas gingivalis, Treponema denticola, T. pectinovorum, T. socranskii, and T. vincentii in a chemically defined medium

TLDR
Medium OMIZ-W1 supports the long-term proliferation of a wide range of oral anaerobes, including representative strains of four Treponema species and Porphyromonas gingivalis, andSpecific requirements for purines and/or pyrimidines were detected, and these requirements could be used to distinguish Haemophilus-Actinobacillus group organisms. Expand
3-hydroxy fatty acids in a lipopolysaccharide-like material from Treponema denticola strain FM.
TLDR
To examine if a common oral treponeme-Treponema denticola-possesses LPS, a modified Westphal method was used to extract LPS-like material from T. Denticola and three hydroxy fatty acids, commonly regarded as markers of L PS, suggested the presence of LPS in T. denticol. Expand
Fatty acid requirement of Treponema denticola and Treponema vincentii.
TLDR
Treponema denticola appears to be capable of limited synthesis of cellular fatty acids such as myristic, pentadecanoic, and palmitic acids from oleic acid, and no other saturated or unsaturated fatty acid tested could support good growth. Expand
Evidence for a New Type of Outer Membrane Lipid in Oral Spirochete Treponema denticola
TLDR
A new class of outer membrane lipid was isolated from the oral spirochete Treponema denticolastrain ATCC 33521 using a phenol/chloroform/light petroleum procedure normally applied for lipopolysaccharide extraction, suggesting a different kind of permeation barrier that is built up by this particular OML of T. denticola. Expand
Treponema maltophilum sp. nov., a small oral spirochete isolated from human periodontal lesions.
TLDR
The strains included in the new species on the basis of their 16S rRNA sequences are heterogeneous with respect to their alpha-fucosidase, and beta-glucuronidase activities, their dependence on N-acetylglucosamine, and their antigens as detected with patient antibodies. Expand
Lipoproteins of Treponema denticola: their effect on human polymorphonuclear neutrophils.
TLDR
Data strongly suggest that T. denticola possesses several lipoproteins including outer sheath major oligomeric polypeptides and a lipooligosaccharide of molecular mass of 14 kDa which modulates oxygen dependent and independent mechanisms for controlling microorganisms by human PMN. Expand
Treponema lecithinolyticum sp. nov., a small saccharolytic spirochaete with phospholipase A and C activities associated with periodontal diseases.
TLDR
A molecular epidemiological analysis showed this organism to be associated with affected sites when compared with unaffected sites of periodontitis patients, and it is proposed as a novel species, Treponema lecithinolyticum sp. Expand
Selenium-dependent growth of Treponema denticola: evidence for a clostridial-type glycine reductase
TLDR
Findings strongly support the notion that T. denticola ferments amino acids via the activity of glycine reductase, an enzyme previously thought to be restricted to gram-positive bacteria. Expand
Fatty Acid Requirements of the Kazan 5 and Reiter Strains of Treponema pallidum
TLDR
The fatty acid requirements of two avirulent treponemes were investigated by using a "lipid-poor" albumin-thioglycolate medium and found that a single 18-carbon monounsaturated fatty acid was necessary for growth. Expand
A CDP‐choline pathway for phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis in Treponema denticola
TLDR
It appears that T. denticola does contain a licCA‐dependent CDP‐choline pathway for phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis, indicating the presence of a choline‐dependent biosynthetic pathway. Expand
