Implication Of Antioxidative Mechanisms And Oxidative Stress Responses In Enterococcus Faecalis-An Invitro Study
Biofilm associated infections in a host lead to depletion of antioxidants such as GSH and GST, the master antioxidants in all mammalian cells The aim of the study was to report a Bromelain induced toxicity in Enterococcus faecalis which is commonly found in oral infections in humans.
- faecalis in Luria Bertani medium at different concentrations of Bromelain (100,300 and 500ul) were cultured and bromelain induced toxicity was assessed.
The results showed that E. faecalis growth was slightly decreased with increase in the concentration of Bromelain.
The incorporation of Bromelain in toothpastes and mouth washes may play a major role in controlling the growth of pathogenic bacteria in the mouth. Bromelain can induce oxidative stress in bacterial cells by creating fluctuations in the GSH metabolism.
