Effects of the oral spirochete Treponema denticola on interleukin-8 expression from epithelial cells.

Abstract

This communication demonstrates that the interaction of the oral spirochete Treponema denticola 35405 with KB epithelial cells does not lead to the induction of interleukin-8 production as occurs with a variety of other bacteria. Utilizing the dentilisin protease mutant K1 of T. denticola, this property was demonstrated to be primarily a function of the… (More)
