MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non-coding single-stranded RNAs that can modulate target gene expression at post-transcriptional level and participate in cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. T cells have important functions in acquired immune response; miRNAs regulate this immune response by targeting the mRNAs of genes involved in T cell(More)
The Tpr protease of Porphyromonas gingivalis W83 is a membrane-associated enzyme capable of hydrolyzing chromogenic substrates for trypsin and bacterial collagenases. A previous study by us indicated that Tpr expression was increased under conditions of nutrient limitation. In the present study, we further characterized expression of the tpr gene using a(More)
