    A blood isolate of Streptococcus mutans strain TW871 shows relatively low homology with MT8148, a reference oral isolate strain, and lacks the serotype-specific polysaccharide antigen, suggesting that other cell-surface structures correlate with cariogenicity. We compared cariogenicity of TW871...
