[Inhibition effects of extracellular glucosyltransferase from Streptococcus mutans].

Abstract

The extracellular, gel-electrophoretically pure glucosyl transferase (GT) of Streptococcus mutans st.227 was incubated with various inhibitors and the synthetic product quantitatively determined. The GT activity was increased with low urea concentration (0.3 - 1.2 M) and inhibited with higher urea molarity. Sodium dodecyl sulfate and quarternary ammonium compounds (detergents) have a clear inhibiting effect starting with 0.005%, while NaF, KSCN, ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid and sugar alcohols do not have any influence.
