Streptococcus intermedius

Streptococcus intermedius

one of a heterogenous collection of streptococci, generally found in the mouth or upper respiratory tract; classification is generally established by fermentation patterns, analysis of the sugar composition of the cell wall, and use of sugar production patterns.

The cytotoxicity of the CDCs is sensitive to the modifications in this region, especially mutations of the tryptophan or the cysteine residues highly affect its binding capacity, for example, intermedilysin (ILY) secreted by Streptococcus intermedius has an alanine residue instead of cysteine of the conserved region, resulting in an oxidation-resistant toxin and a proline residue is present in place of second conserved tryptophan [24].
