The levels of volatile sulphur compounds (VSC) in periodontal pockets and mouth air have been found to correlate with severity of the disease process. The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of hydrogen sulphide and methyl mercaptan on protein metabolism of human gingival fibroblasts. The incorporation of labelled amino acids into protein was used to evaluate effects on total protein content. Changes in collagenous protein concentration were monitored by release of radioactivity… CONTINUE READING
