The bacterial glycome - A sign post for oral health versus disease?
Oral biofilm (“dental plaque”) is a rich reservoir of microorganisms, including Tannerella species. The recently identified, oral health-associated, Tannerella serpentiformis is the closest relative of T. forsythia. We have evidence that the glycomes of these two Tannerella species differ in key aspects and we hypothesize that this translates into differences of the oral health status.
