- ... The glucan-binding protein-A (GbpA) of Streptococcus mutans has been shown to contribute to the architecture of glucan-dependent biofilms formed by this species and influence virulence in a rat model. As S. mutans synthesizes multiple glucosyltransferases and nonglucosyltransferase glucan-binding proteins (GBPs), it is possible that there is functional redundancy that overshadows the full extent o ...
