OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of the cell wall of Streptococcus mutans on the expression of Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4), IL-6 and IL-8 in EAhy926 cells (The human endothelial hybridoma of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) and the human epithelial cell line A549, characterized by endothelial phenotype and biology). METHODS EAhy926 cells were treated with different concentrations of the cell wall of Streptococcus mutans. The proliferation of EAhy926 cells was determined by… CONTINUE READING
