Abstract

Summary

An agglutination assay for detecting intermicrobial adherence between the cells of and various oral bacteria is described. Strains of Streptococcus sanguis, S. salivarius, S. mutans, S. mitis, and all coagglutinated with No interaction could be demonstrated between the cells of and those of Preliminary investigations of these interactions suggest that binding of and to is mediated by bacterial proteins, possibly lectins. Other mechanisms must account for the binding of oral streptococci to The possible implications of these findings in relation to oral mucosal colonisation and oral candidal clearance are discussed.
