Regulation of pro-inflammatory cytokine expression in periodontal ligament cells

Project: Research

Project Details


We have demonstrated that human periodontal ligament cells not only produce collagen but also may act as immune cells. Thus, not only white blood cells but also tissue-cells contibute to cytokine production in periodontal inflammation. This project aims to elucidate the mechanisms explaining the phenotype-shift and identify pathways regulating the functional properties of periodontal ligament cells.
