Abstract

Growth of Streptococcus mutans 6715 in a medium containing trace amounts of sucrose or dextran promotes cell-associated glucosyl transferase activity and increases the dextran-binding capacity of the organisms.

Antibodies: Agglutination

Antibody-mediated agglutination is the clumping of cells in the presence of antibody, which binds multiple cells together. This enhances the clearance of pathogens. Find the latest research on antibody-mediated agglutination here.
