Abstract:
Streptococcus gordonii is an early bacterial coloniser of the oral cavity and influences development of plaque biofilms. Interactions of Candida albicans, an opportunistic fungal pathogen, with S. gordonii are hypothesised to promote fungal carriage and persistence. Evidence suggests that signalling molecules produced by streptococci, including competence stimulating peptide (eSP) and autoinducer 2 (AI -2L affect C. albicans growth. However, less is understood about the molecular basis of these interactions.
