Human endogenous peptide p33 inhibits detrimental effects of LL-37 on osteoblast viability.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


High levels of the antimicrobial peptide, LL-37, are detected in gingival crevicular fluid from patients with chronic periodontitis. LL-37 not only shows antimicrobial activity but also affects host-cell viability. The objective of the present study was to identify endogenous mechanisms that antagonize the detrimental effects of LL-37 on osteoblast viability, focusing on the human peptide p33 expressed on the surface of various cell types.
