S100A9-induced release of interleukin (IL)-6 and IL-8 through toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) in human periodontal ligament cells.
S100A8, S100A9, and calprotectin (the S100A8/S100A9 complex) are calcium-binding proteins that promote extracellular pro-inflammatory functions and may play an important role in periodontal disease.Expand
