OBJECTIVES Keratinocyte growth factor-1 (KGF-1) is up-regulated in chronic inflammation and specifically stimulates epithelial cell proliferation by signaling through the epithelial-specific keratinocyte growth factor receptor (KGFR). We examined KGF-1 and KGFR protein and gene expression in healthy and diseased periodontal tissues. METHODS Tissues were collected from patients with periodontal health or disease, immediately frozen and stained for KGF-1 and KGFR protein expression. Laser… CONTINUE READING
