Abstract: Background and Hypothesis: Bacterial receptors in dental pellicles may influence colonisation and subsequent plaque formation. Studies on such receptors in the dental pellicles and bacterial adherence have mostly been performed in vitro and focused on proteins of salivary origin. We have only a limited knowledge of the receptor functions of plasma proteins and even less on the in vivo situation where they could reach the pellicle via the gingival crevicular fluid. Our hypothesis was that plasma ... more
