One of the heat shock family protein (Hsp) expressing bacteria is the gram negative, periodontal pathogen Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (Aa). A. actinomycetemcomitans' Hsp is a 64-kDa GroEL-protein, which has been shown to influence the host cells. In this study we used recombinant A. actinomycetemcomitans GroEL (rAaGroEL) protein as a model antigen(More)
Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (Aa) expresses a 64-kDa GroEL protein belonging to the heat shock family of proteins. This protein has been shown to influence human host cells, but the apoptotic capacity of the GroEL protein regarding T cells is not yet known. The purpose of this study was to investigate the ability of A. actinomycetemcomitans GroEL(More)
Actinobacillus (Aggregatibacter) actinomycetemicomitans (Aa) is a bacterium that lives in the oral cavity and plays an important role in periodontal diseases. The effect of A.actinomycetemcomitans's heat shock family protein GroEL on host or immune cells including monocytes is quite limited. In this study, the recombinant A.actinomycetemcomitans's GroEL(More)
