In an attempt to characterize TCR V gene usage in human periodontally diseased tissue, V alpha 2, V beta 5.2-3, V beta 5.3, V beta 5.1, V beta 6.7, V beta 6.7, V beta 8 and V beta 12.1 expressions were examined. Serial cryostat sections obtained from 20 periodontitis and 9 gingivitis biopsies were then reacted with monoclonal antibodies directed to each… CONTINUE READING
