Palatal mucosa derived fibroblasts present an adaptive behavior regarding cytokine secretion when grafted onto the gingival margin
(BioMed Central, 2014)
Abstract Background Considering that grafted gingival tissue might have to be adapted to the receptor area and that fibroblasts have the ability to respond to bacterial ...
Morphological evaluation of combined effects of cyclosporin and nifedipine on gingival overgrowth in rats
Testosterone stimulates proliferation and inhibits interleukin-6 production of normal and hereditary gingival fibromatosis fibroblasts
(Blackwell MunksgaardCopenhagenDinamarca, 2002)
Epidermal growth factor stimulates urokinase-type plasminogen activator expression in human gingival fibroblasts. Possible modulation by genistein and curcumin
(Blackwell Munksgaard Ltd, 2004-04-08)
Regulation of the extracellular matrix turnover is a crucial process in wound healing and the progress of periodontal disease. It has been proposed that urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA), under the control of ...
Proliferation of fibroblasts cultured from normal gingiva and hereditary gingival fibromatosis is dependent on fatty acid synthase activity
(Amer Acad PeriodontologyChicagoEUA, 2005)
Effect of LPS treatment on the viability and chemokine synthesis by epithelial cells and gingival fibroblasts
Objective: Several local factors can affect the wound-healing process, delaying its progression and postponing tissue homeostasis. It is known that local inflammation is related to wound healing; however, the maintenance ...
Differential Production of Macrophage Inflammatory Protein-1 alpha, Stromal-Derived Factor-1, and IL-6 by Human Cultured Periodontal Ligament and Gingival Fibroblasts Challenged With Lipopolysaccharide From P. gingivalis
(AMER ACAD PERIODONTOLOGY, 2010)
Background: Fibroblasts are considered important cells in periodontitis. When challenged by different agents, they respond through the release of cytokines that participate in the inflammatory process. The aim of this study ...
Substance P regulates the expression of matrix metalloproteinases and tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinase in cultured human gingival fibroblasts
(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2008)
Background and Objective: Substance P may play a role in the pathogenesis of periodontal disease; however, its mechanisms of modulation are not clear. This study evaluated the effect of two concentrations of Substance P ...
