Extracellular vesicles of Bacteroides gingivalis (type strain 33277) were isolated, and some of their biological activities were characterized. The vesicles were obtained from a 2-day culture after ammonium sulfate precipitation, differential centrifugation, and dialysis. When viewed by electron microscopy, vesicles of approximately 50 nm predominated. The results indicated that the enriched vesicle fraction had a high proteolytic activity against collagen, Azocoll, and N-alpha-benzoyl-DL… CONTINUE READING
