  • The production of extracellular and cell-associated glucosyltransferase activity by Streptococcus mutans strain GS-5 was examined during growth on various carbon sources in a chemically defined medium. S. mutans cells produced glucosyltransferase activity only during logarithmic growth when glucose, fructose, mannitol, or sorbitol was the sole carbon source. Cells growing on mannitol or sorbitol produced approximately half as much extracellular glucosyltransferase activity as cells growing on… CONTINUE READING
