The synthesis of extracellular polysaccharides is a prominent factor of its virulence, since even before the sucrose enters the cell, a percentage is transformed by exoenzymes, glucosyltransferases (Gtfs) and fructosiltransferasas (Ftf), which metabolize sucrose in monosaccharide molecules, transferring each fraction to a receiving molecule and forming polymers that can be spread in the biofilm or remain associated with S.
