- Streptococcus salivarius urease: genetic and biochemical characterization and expression in a dental plaque streptococcusY Y Chen
Department of Dental Research, University of Rochester, New York 14642, USA
Infect Immun 64:585-92. 1996..Such recombinant organisms may eventually prove useful for controlling dental caries by replacement therapy...
- Analysis of Streptococcus salivarius urease expression using continuous chemostat cultureY Y Chen
Department of Dental Research, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, NY 14642, USA
FEMS Microbiol Lett 135:223-9. 1996..The data indicated that urease was highly expressed at low pH, and expression was also modulated by glucose availability and growth rate. Differential expression was controlled, at least in part, at the transcriptional level...
