• formation
  • A range of broad-spectrum antimicrobials are used to inhibit plaque formation. (otago.ac.nz)
  • Zoocin A and lauricidin also reduced biofilm formation and maintained the pH above 7.0, while the pH of control biofilms decreased to 4.3 after 72 hours. (otago.ac.nz)
  • The effects of chlorhexidine on biofilm formation and pH were similar. (otago.ac.nz)
  • bacterium
  • In this study, DNA-microarrays and real-time RT-PCR analysis were carried out to characterize the transcriptional differences of this bacterium in various biofilm depths. (beds.ac.uk)
