  • a Each anti-RPS-reactive representative strain (RS; w, weak reactivity) was characterized for a recognition motif using coaggregation test strains of A. naeslundii and S. gordonii and then screened for coaggregation with streptococcal and nonstreptococcal coisolates. Only RPS-dependent coaggregations (the partner bears the protein adhesin) are listed.

  • b Antibody-reactive strains that coaggregate with defined test strains and can therefore be assigned a recognition motif. In the RPS designations, the number indicates the serotype and G or Gn indicates the receptor motif.

  • c Antibody-reactive strains that do not coaggregate with test strains and therefore cannot be assigned a recognition motif. In the RPS designations, the number indicates the serotype.
