Abstract

Summary

Several mechanisms that could contribute to the periodontopathogenic potential of were investigated. All 18 strains examined produced RNAase and the metabolites HS, indole and butyrate. Some strains produced phosphatase and DNAase. Methanol extracts of whole cells of subspp. and stimulated bone resorption comparable to that produced by recognised periodontal pathogens. These results suggest that further studies should be performed to elucidate the role of in periodontal disease.
