Fibroblasts are now seen as active components of the immune response because these cells express Toll-like receptors (TLRs), recognize pathogen-associated molecular patterns, and mediate the production of cytokines and chemokines during inflammation. The molecular mechanisms that contribute to the inflammatory response mediated by fibroblastic cells, in a differential manner depending o...
When challenged by different agents, periodontal fibroblasts are able to respond through the release of substances, such as cytokines and chemokines that participate in an active way in the inflammatory process. It has been recognized that Toll like receptors (TLR) are stimulated by these molecules and in particular TLR2 and TLR4 has been strongly associated with the host immune respons...
Porphyromonas gingivalis is one of the pathogens most commonly associated with chronic periodontitis, being known as a keystone-pathogen in this inflammatory disease. One of P. gingivalis virulence factors is a homologous enzyme nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDK), which is secreted by P. gingivalis. NDK is able to cleave extracellular ATP (eATP), suppressing eATP-induced apoptosis in a...
