Effect of short chain fatty acids on human gingival epithelial cell keratins in vitro.

Abstract

Hemidesmosomal attachment of the junctional epithelial cells to the tooth and the ability of the attached cells to divide are essential features of the healthy dentogingival junction. Short chain fatty acids are bacterial metabolites associated with gingival inflammation and periodontal pockets. In vitro, short chain fatty acids have been shown to inhibit… (More)
