Application of a competition model to the growth of Streptococcus mutans and Streptococcus sanguis in binary continuous culture



Application of a competition model to the growth of Streptococcus mutans and Streptococcus sanguis in binary continuous culture



Applied and Environmental Microbiology 45(4): 1277-1282



S. mutans 6715-15 and S. sanguis 10558 were grown together in continuous culture with glucose as the limiting C source. The relationship of growth rate to substrate concentration was determined for pure cultures of each organism in continuous and batch cultures. A model based on competition for a growth-limiting substrate (glucose) was used to predict the proportions of each organism when grown in binary cultures. Apparently, interactions other than competition for glucose C exist between S. mutans and S. anguis grown under these conditions. [These results are relevant to the pathogenesis of dental plaque.].
