Figure 2

Effect on adherence, glucan synthesis, hydrophobicity & biofilm formation. Inhibitory effect of CR extract and ME fraction on the glass-dependent adherence in the absence (sucrose-independent SI) and presence of 5% sucrose (sucrose-dependent SD), water- soluble (WSG) and insoluble glucan (WIG) synthesis and on surface hydrophobicity by S.mutans (a & b). Also their effect on biofilm formation at 3h, 6h, 12h and 24 h of incubation (c & d). Each value is an average of triplicate assays, and each bar indicates ± standard deviation (n = 3).
