Antimicrobial peptide modulation in a differentiated reconstructed gingival epithelium

Abstract

Gingival innate immunity has been studied by using biopsies and normal or transformed epithelial cell monolayers. To overcome individual biological variabilities and as a physiological alternative, we have proposed using a reconstructed tissue equivalent. In this study, we investigated the functionality and the stage of differentiation of a reconstructed… (More)
