INTRODUCTION Determination of age of a subject is one of the most important aspects of medico-legal cases and anthropological research. Radiographs can be used to indirectly measure the rate of secondary dentine deposition which is depicted by reduction in the pulp area. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this study, 200 patients of Karnataka aged between 18-72(More)
Sulfolipid-immobilizing protein 1 (SLIP1) is a germ cell plasma membrane protein that binds specifically to sulfogalactosylglycerolipid, a sulfoglycolipid found preferentially in mammalian male germ cells (Lingwood, Can. J. Biochem. Cell. Biol. 63:1077-1085, 1985b). SLIP1 in mouse and rat sperm exists on the periacrosomal membrane, where sperm initially(More)
BACKGROUND Increased iron overload is frequent problem in thalassemia patients, and this is monitored by serum ferritin levels or chemical assessment of the iron levels in liver tissue. However, repeated monitoring of serum ferritin levels to assess the iron overload is an invasive procedure associated with practical problems. AIMS To use Perl's Prussian(More)
BACKGROUND This split-mouth clinical study aimed to investigate levels of alpha-2-macroglobulin (a2M) in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) of chronic periodontitis patients pre- and post-scaling and root planing (SRP) with or without adjunctive use of tetracycline fibers. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 30 patients of chronic periodontitis, samples of GCF were(More)
BACKGROUND The B cell lymphoma-2 gene is a proto-oncogene whose protein product inhibits apoptosis. Its role is associated with keeping cells alive, but not by stimulating them to proliferation, as other proto-oncogenes do. Increased expression of protein product of Bcl-2 gene appears in the early phase of carcinogenesis leading to apoptosis impairment and(More)
INTRODUCTION Forensic odontology is a branch that is evolving over time and has opened newer avenues that may help in the identification of individuals. Tooth prints are the enamel rod end patterns on tooth surface and they are considered as a hard tissue analog to fingerprints. Teeth have the highest resistance to most environmental effects like fire,(More)
Dermatologic disorders frequently parallel with oral involvement which dental practitioners should be familiar with. In continuation with part II, the immunofluorescence patterns in the intraepidermal pemphigus group and its variants: Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) and paraneoplastic pemphigus (PNP) are dealt in this section. Also, a brief note is added on other(More)
BACKGROUND Bcl-2 and E-cadherin proteins are known to be involved in the control of apoptotic cell death and invasive potential, respectively, which is an important hallmark of tumor regulation that influences their biologic behavior. AIM This study investigates the relationship of Bcl-2 and E-cadherin immunoexpression in various Bryne's patterns of(More)
Lipomas are benign tumours of mesenchymal origin (mature adipocytes) that are comparatively uncommon in the oral cavity corresponding to less than 4.4% of all benign oral soft tissue tumors. Clinically, they present as slow growing, soft, asymptomatic masses that are usually less than 25 mm in size. Histopathologically, they appear as thinly encapsulated(More)
INTRODUCTION Oxidative stress has been implicated in tumourigenesis by affecting the actions of various protein kinases and transcription factors, and resulting in damage to DNA structure by the deamination of nucleotides and the generation of free radicals. Derangements in the antioxidant defence mechanism have been considered in the pathogenesis of oral(More)
