Munbakterie kan ge infarkt

Bakterierna, som är av typen streptokocker, lever i munnen där de kan orsaka tandplack och tandköttsproblem. Skulle de av en händelse ta sig vidare in i blodbanan, exempelvis genom blödande tandkött, kan de sedan tidigare känt initiera blodproppar och hjärtfel.

Forskare vid universitet i Bristol har nu identifierat proteinet på bakteriernas yta, så kallad PadA, som ligger bakom processen. Studier på en modell som efterliknar förhållandena i det mänskliga cirkulationssystemet visade att proteinet tvingar blodplättar i blodet att binda till varandra.
