Glucan-binding proteins of Streptococcus sobrinus B13 grown in high glucose media.

To improve the yield of an 87-kDa glucan-binding protein (GBP) of Streptococcus sobrinus B13 (serogroup d), trypticase-yeast extract (TYE) medium supplemented with higher (1 and 2%) than the usual amount (0.2%) of glucose was used for growth. The production of this GBP extracellularly in 1.0 and 2.0% glucose-TYE media was examined and compared with the… CONTINUE READING
