MMP20 and KLK4 activation and inactivation interactions in vitro.
Enamelysin (MMP20) and kallikrein 4 (KLK4) are believed to be necessary to clear proteins from the enamel matrix of developing teeth. MMP20 is expressed by secretory stage ameloblasts, while KLK4 is expressed from the transition stage throughout the maturation stage. The aim of this study is to inve...
Glucose-free conditions induce the expression of AMPK in dental pulp cells.
This study is aimed to test whether glucose-free conditions induce the activation of adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and, to investigate association with AMPK expression and cell viability in human dental pulp cells. Human dental pulp cells were initially maintained in cultur...
Cetylpyridinium chloride suppresses gene expression associated with halitosis.
We hypothesized that CPC suppresses expression of the genes (mgl and cdl) and enzymes responsible for methyl mercaptan (CH3SH) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) production by oral anaerobes associated with halitosis. In this study, the mgl and cdl expression of Porphyromonas gingivalis and Fusobacterium nu...
Immunocompetent cell level as a diagnostic reference for pulpal pathosis of primary teeth.
The present study was designed to measure changes in the level of immunocompetent cells as healthy pulp becomes inflamed in order to evaluate the use of CD4+/CD8+ and B/CD3+ lymphocyte ratios as a diagnostic reference for pulpal pathosis in primary teeth pulp. Based on clinical and radiographic exam...
The induction expression of human β-defensins in gingival epithelial cells and fibroblasts.
The gingival epithelial cells and fibroblasts can produce antimicrobial peptides when stimulated by inflammatory cytokines. The purpose of the present study was to test whether gingival keratinocytes and gingival fibroblasts respond differently to inflammatory cytokine activation. This will enable u...
Tooth wear with an erosive component in a Mediaeval Iceland population.
Dental erosion is generally thought of as a modern phenomenon, but there is emerging evidence that the condition has always been present in the human dentition to some degree. The aim of this study was to quantitatively evaluate the severity of tooth wear observed in skeletal material from a mediaev...
Effects of Fam83h overexpression on enamel and dentine formation.
The aim of this study was to determine if FAM83H over-expression causes dentine or enamel malformations. The full-length mouse Fam83h cDNA was inserted into the pCAGIG vector between a β-actin promoter and β-globin enhancer for ubiquitous expression in transgenic mice. Recombinant mouse FAM83H was e...
Modification of forsythia detaching factor by gingival crevicular fluid in periodontitis.
Forsythia detaching factor (FDF) is a virulence factor of Tannerella forsythia detected as a mixture of the 60-kDa form of FDF and the 28-kDa C-terminal fragment (FDFc). The objective of the present study was to clarify the proteolytic activity of gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) from patients with p...
The effect of the season of birth and of selected maternal factors on linear enamel thickness in modern human deciduous incisors.
We investigated the effects of season of birth and selected maternal factors on enamel thickness of deciduous incisors. Dental sample comprises 60 deciduous incisors. The parents who handed over their children's teeth for research fill in questionnaires containing questions about the course of pregn...
OralCard: A bioinformatic tool for the study of oral proteome.
We present the online bioinformatic tool OralCard, which comprises results from 55 manually curated articles reflecting the oral molecular ecosystem (OralPhysiOme). It comprises experimental information available from the oral proteome both of human (OralOme) and microbial origin (MicroOralOme) stru...
