Scientists have discovered the tool that bacteria normally found in our mouths use to invade heart tissue, causing a dangerous and sometimes lethal infection of the heart known as endocarditis. The work raises the possibility of creating a screening tool "“ perhaps a swab of the cheek, or a spit test "“ to gauge a dental patient's vulnerability to the condition. The identification of the protein that allows Streptococcus mutans to gain a foothold in heart tissue is reported in the...
