Porphyromonas gingivalis fimbriae induce adhesion of monocytic cell line U937 to endothelial cells.


This study used the human monocytic cell line U937 to examine whether or not Porphyromonas gingivalis fimbriae could induce the adhesion of monocytes to endothelial cells. An in vitro adhesion assay was used to investigate the effects of the fimbriae on U937 cell adhesion to human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC). The fimbriae enhanced U937 cell… (More)
