ABSTRACT We used an overlay method to study the ability of human salivary glycoproteins
to serve as receptors for several strains of streptococci that colonize the oral cavity. Parotid
and submandibular-sublingual salivas were collected as ductal secretions, separated by
sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and transferred to nitrocellulose
membranes. The resulting blots were overlaid with [35S] methionine-labeled bacteria, and ...
