Polypeptides associated with tufts of cell-surface fibrils in an oral Streptococcus.

Abstract

Cells of the oral bacterium Streptococcus oralis CN3410 produce lateral tufts of cell-surface fibrils of two lengths. Treatment of cells with trypsin resulted in loss of the tufts and release of longer fibrils intact. SDS-PAGE analysis of trypsin extracts containing fibrils revealed two groups of high molecular mass polypeptides which were denoted group A… (More)
