Streptococcus mutans GbpC is a wall-anchored surface protein which is involved in dextran-dependent aggregation. The GbpC phenotype is observed only in cells grown under stress conditions. In order to detect the GbpC protein of S. mutans, we isolated the wall fraction following digestion of the cell wall of this organism by N-acetylmuramidase, and detected the GbpC protein from S. mutans cells by western analysis with anti-GbpC serum. Interestingly, S. mutans cells exhibiting the negative… CONTINUE READING
