Chemical and immunological comparison of surface fibrils of strains representing six taxonomic groups of Actinomyces viscosus and Actinomyces naeslundii

Using a previously described technique surface fibrils of clinical isolates of A. viscosus and A. naeslundii were isolated and purified.

Human isolates of A. viscosus and A. naeslundii were divided into 6 clusters in a numerical taxonomy study. Surface fibrils of strains representing these clusters were isolated and purified. Chemical analyses revealed that the major component of a...

DNAs of type strains and representative members of Actinomyces groups from the human peripheral flora and from other habitats were compared by using the S1 nuclease procedure to determine their genetic relatedness.

Actinomyces viscosus and Actinomyces naeslundii differ in their abilities to colonize tooth and epithelial surfaces. These differences appear to be associated with the distribution of different fimbriae on the two species and with the distinct adh...
