Differential uPA expression by TGF-β1 in gingival fibroblasts
Transforming Growth Factor-β1 (TGF-β1) plays a key role in connective tissue remodeling and inflammation. Under pathological conditions, like periodontal disease, fibroblasts may display an altered response to this growth ...
Triclosan inhibits tumor necrosis factor-α-stimulated urokinase production in human gingival fibroblasts
Background and Objectives: Destruction of the supporting periodontal tissues is mediated by the action of several proteolytic enzymes. Urokinase is a serine protease that plays a key role in connective tissue destruction ...
Low-level laser therapy in 3D cell culture model using gingival fibroblasts
Besides extensive data about the effects of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on different cell types, so far, these results were obtained from monolayer cell culture models, which have limitations in terms of cell morphology ...
Induction of the myofibroblastic phenotype in human gingival fibroblasts by transforming growth factor-β1: Role of RhoA-ROCK and c-Jun N-terminal kinase signaling pathways
Background and Objectives: Myofibroblastic differentiation is an important event in gingival wound healing and chronic inflammation. Transforming frowth factor-β 1 (TGF-β1) is a potent growth factor that has been implicated ...
Cyclosporin A induces proliferation in human gingival fibroblasts via induction of transforming growth factor-beta 1
(Amer Acad PeriodontologyChicagoEUA, 2003)
Stimulation of IL-6 Cytokines in Fibroblasts by Toll-like Receptors 2
(Sage Publications Inc, 2010-08-01)
The osteotropic interleukin-6 (IL-6) types of cytokines IL-6, IL-11, and leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF), but not oncostatin M, are expressed by human gingival fibroblasts, and their expressions are regulated by IL-1 and ...
Induction of the myofibroblastic phenotype in human gingival fibroblasts by transforming growth factor-b1: role of RhoA-ROCK and c-Jun N-terminal kinase signaling pathways
(Blackwell Munksgaard Ltd, 2006-06-05)
Myofibroblastic differentiation is an important event in gingival wound healing and chronic inflammation. Transforming frowth factorb 1 (TGF-b1) is a potent growth factor that has been implicated in this process. Gingival ...
Differential proliferation of fibroblasts cultured from hereditary gingival fibromatosis and normal gingiva
