Abstract

Summary

A collection of strains representing all the currently recognised species of oral or viridans streptococci ( and ) were tested for the production of a range of glycosidase activities with 4-methylumbelliferyl-linked fluorogenic substrates, and for reactions in a range of conventional fermentation and hydrolytic tests. The resulting biochemical scheme, consisting of 14 tests, enabled the differentiation of all these species and distinguished three biotypes within . The scheme reported here represents an improvement over currently available schemes for the identification of viridans streptococci.
