|Title:||Kinetics of Monofluorophosphate Hydrolysis in a Bacterial Test Plaque in situ|
|Abstract:||Models to evaluate the anticaries potential of fluoride (F) formulations containing monofluorophosphate (MFP) should consider the release of F ion to the oral environment by its enzymatic hydrolysis. This was tested in situ, using a test plaque of a strain of Streptococcus mutans which presents high MFPase activity at pH 5.0. The test plaque was exposed to non-F or MFP (1,450 mu g F/g) dentifrices and the fluid phase of the plaque was analyzed after 15, 30, 45 and 75 min. MFP concentration in the plaque fluid decreased over time after exposure to MFP dentifrice, but F ion reached 134.9 +/- 32.0 mu M at 15 min and decreased significantly only at 75 min, suggesting continuous MFP hydrolysis by the test plaque.
