Limonene inhibits streptococcal biofilm formation by targeting surface-associated virulence factors.
Limonene showed a concentration-dependent reduction in the biofilm formation of Streptococcus pyogenes (SF370), with minimal biofilm inhibitory concentration (MBIC) of 400 μg ml - 1, and anti-cariogenic efficacy of limonene against Streptitis mutans was confirmed.
Atividade Antibacteriana de Frutas do Nordeste Brasileiro sobre Bactéria Cariogênica
dental caries is a great public health problem in many countries. Some regions in Brazil are more affected as the North and Northeast. The antibacterial activity against Streptococcus mutans


Inhibitory effects of cranberry polyphenols on formation and acidogenicity of Streptococcus mutans biofilms.
Proanthocyanidins and flavonols are the active constituents of cranberry against S. mutans, and biofilm development and acidogenicity were significantly affected by topical applications of PAC and FLAV.
Comparative evaluation of in-vitro effects of Brazilian green propolis and Baccharis dracunculifolia extracts on cariogenic factors of Streptococcus mutans.
A comparative evaluation of the effects of extracts from green propolis and Bd on the glucan synthesis and acidogenic potential of S. mutans allowed us to suggest that Bd leaves may be a potential source for pharmaceutical products employed for this purpose.
Influence of peroxyacetic acid and nisin and coculture with Enterococcus faecium on Listeria monocytogenes biofilm formation.
Although all tested conditions reduced L. monocytogenes growth to some extent, only coculture with E. faecium bac+ efficiently reduced biofilm formation, suggesting a potential control strategy for this pathogen.
Reduction of Acidurance of Streptococcal Growth and Glycolysis by Fluoride and Gramicidin
Glycolysis was more fluoride-sensitive than was growth and growth was found to be acid-limited in media with initial glucose levels greater than 0.2%, while S. sanguis was less severely affected by fluoride and proved to be more acid-sensitive in complex media.
Screening of some plants used in the Brazilian folk medicine for the treatment of infectious diseases.
Five of the Brazilian medicinal plants screened for their antimicrobial activity against bacteria and yeasts presented compounds with Rf values similar to the antibacterial compounds visible on bioautogram, which may mean that the same compounds are responsible for the antib bacterial activity in these plants.
Evaluation of plant extracts for antileishmanial activity using a mechanism-based radiorespirometric microtechnique (RAM).
Of 13 methanol extracts tested, 5 from Gongronema latifolia, Dorstenia multiradiata, Picralima nitida, Cola attiensis, and Desmodium gangeticum were active at concentrations of 50 micrograms/ml or less against a visceral Leishmania isolate.
