    Author : Nina Forsgren; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Streptococcus gordonii; X-ray crystallography; surface adhesin; dental plaque; structural biology; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry Structural biology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi Strukturbiologi; ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI; odontologi; Odontology;

    Abstract : Surface proteins on microorganisms that build up the oral biofilm are key players in the formation of the biofilm. Antigen I/II proteins are surface adhesins found on virtually all oral streptococci and share a conserved multi-domain architecture. These adhesins bind surface components on other bacteria and on host cells. READ MORE
