    Uncoupled bone resorption leads to net alveolar bone loss in periodontitis. The deficiency of LL-37, the only human antimicrobial peptide in the cathelicidin family, in patients with aggressive periodontitis suggests that LL-37 may play a pivotal role in the inhibition of alveolar bone...

    Periodontal disease characterized by alveolar bone resorption and bacterial pathogen-evoked inflammatory response has been believed to have an important impact on human oral health. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether magnolol, a main constituent of Magnolia officinalis, could inhibit...

    In osteoprotegerin-deficient (OPG−/−) mice, osteoclast activity causes bone resorption to outpace bone formation, leading to the development of severe osteoporosis. Such mice are therefore useful for investigating the alveolar bone of patients with osteoporosis. Reveromycin A (RM-A)...

    SEVERAL lines of research indirectly suggest that platelet activating factor (PAF) may intervene in the pathogenesis of extrinsic allergic alveolitis (EAA). The specific aim of our study was to evaluate the participation of PAF on macrophage activation during the acute phase of EAA in an...

    Essential fatty acids (EFAs) play a significant role in bone metabolism. Herein we studied the adaptation of alveolar bone to physiologic tooth drift in young rats deprived of essential fatty acids from birth. Reductions in femur size and trabecular bone volume reflected body growth impairment....

    Tooth eruption consists of the movement of teeth from the bony crypt in which they initiate their development to the occlusal plane in the oral cavity. Interactions between the tooth germ and its surrounding alveolar bone occur in order to offer spatial conditions for its development and...

    Sarcoidosis, a chronic granulomatous disease of unknown cause, has been linked to several environmental risk factors, among which are some that may favor carbon nanotube formation. Using gene array data, we initially observed that bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) cells from sarcoidosis patients...

    INTRACELLULAR adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1)-mediated cell-cell adhesion is thought to play an important role at sites of inflammation. Recent evidence suggests that ICAM-1 surface expression on alveolar macrophages is increased in pulmonary sarcoidosis and that inflammatory granuloma formation is...

  • Platelet-Activating Factor Modulates a Secreted Phosphatase Activity of the Trypanosomatid Parasite Herpetomonas muscarum muscarum. Dutra, Patricia M. L.; Dias, Felipe A.; Rodrigues, Claudia O.; Romeiro, Alexandre; Attias, Marcia; de Souza, Wanderley; Lopes, Angela H.C.S.; Meyer-Fernandes, José Roberto // Current Microbiology;Oct2001, Vol. 43 Issue 4, p288 

    In the present work we characterized the secreted phosphatase activity of the trypanosomatid parasite Herpetomonas muscarum muscarum. This housefly parasite hydrolyzed p-nitrophenylphosphate at a rate of 10.26 nmol Pi/mg protein/min. Classical inhibitors of acid phosphatases, such as sodium...
