    ABSTRACT: To compare the effects of 25 kDa full-length rhAm and porcine EMPs on cell behaviors of human periodontal ligament fibroblasts (HPDLF) and foreskin fibroblasts(HFF). rhAm was induced by BL21/pET28a-His-SUMO-rhAm express system, and 25 kDa full-length rhAm was analyzed by SDS-PAGE and Western blot. EMPs were extracted by acetic acid method. HPDLF and HFF were cultured in vitro. The cells were treated with rhAm and EMPs at different concentrations. The cell adhesion, proliferation and migration assays were qualitatively analyzed. The data was statistically analyzed with SAS 5.0 software package. 10-20 μg/mL rhAm significantly promoted the adhesion, proliferation and migration of HPDLF and HFF (P<0.05), but no significant difference between two proteins was found (P>0.05). 25 kDa rhAm and EMPs shows similar biological effects on fibroblast, which indicates that rhAm may play an important role in the periodontal regeneration through the activation of fibroblasts.

    ABSTRACT: To investigate the potential effect of recombinant 25kDa porcine amelogenin (rPAm) on attachment, proliferation and migration of primarily cultured human gingival epithelial cells (HGEC). The second passage of HGECs were exposed to different concentrations of rPAm (0, 5, 10, 20μg/mL, respectively). Proliferation and attachment activities was measured by using cell counting method. Cellular migration was assayed by using an in vitro wound healing model. The data was quantified by the analysis of GraphPad Prism software. rPAm inhibited HGEC attachment in the adhesion assay, the effect was depended on time and rPAm dose. rPAm suppressed the growth rate of HGEC, that was also dose and time dependent. rPAm inhibited the migration ability of HGEC, the concentration of 20μg/mL group had the most significant effect. rPAm significantly inhibit the growth rate, cell adhesion and migration of HGEC, and the effect was dose- and time- dependent.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the effect of periodontal initial therapy on clinical parameters and subgingival periodontal pathogen in patients with chronic periodontitis. One hundred and twenty patients with chronic periodontitis were included. Probing depth (PD), attachment loss (AL), plaque index (PLI) and gingival index (GI) were evaluated at baseline and after-initial therapy. P.g and A.a in subgingival plaque were investigated by real-time PCR. Data was statistically analyzed by SAS6.12 software for Student's t test. The PD, AL, PLI and GI were significantly decreased after periodontal initial therapy (P<0.01), and meanwhile the ratio of P.g versus total bacteria was significantly decreased after-initial therapy (P<0.05). However, the change of ratio of A.a versus total bacteria was not significant (P>0.05). Periodontal initial therapy could effectively control the inflammation of chronic periodontitis, and decrease the ratio of P.g in subgingival plaque.

    ABSTRACT: To investigate the effect of hypoxia on proliferation and expression of HIF-1alpha and Caspase-3 in human periodontal ligament cells (PDLCs). Human PDLCs were exposed to cobalt chloride in order to mimic hypoxia. Cell viability of PDLCs was determined by MTT methods. Expression of HIF-1alpha and Caspase-3 was measured by real time PCR and Western blot. The data was statistically analyzed with SAS6.12 software package for one-way ANOVA. Cell viability of PDLCs significantly decreased when exposed to hypoxia in a time- and dose-dependent manner. Hypoxia induced the expression of HIF-1alpha,up-regulated the expression of Caspase-3. Hypoxia inhibits cell proliferation, which involves the expression of HIF-1alpha and Caspase-3, resulting in the production of the apoptosis. The results suggest that hypoxia may play a role in the induction and progression of chronic periodontitis.

    ABSTRACT: To study the biocompatibility of Bio-oss collagen with cultured bone marrow stromal cells. The bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) of rhesus monkey were cultured with Bio-oss collagen in vitro. Cell attachment was observed with laser confocal microscope. Cell proliferation rates were assessed with MTT assay. ALP activity was also detected. The data was statistically analyzed with SAS6.12 software package for Student's t test. The rhesus BMSCs could attach to the surface of Bio-oss collagen. In cell proliferation rates, there was no significant difference between the control group and experimental group at 2-day and 5-day(P>0.05). However, at 8-day, the difference was significant (P<0.05). For ALP activity, there was no significant difference among different time point (P>0.05). The Bio-oss collagen has good biocompatibility with rhesus BMSCs, and could be used to repair periodontal bone defects as a biomaterial in tissue engineering.

    ABSTRACT: To construct the recombinant lentiviral vector of human amelogenin gene, infect human periodontal ligament cells with the recombinant lentivirus, and evaluate the feasibility of applying modified PDLCs as seeds for a further periodontal reconstruction. The mature peptide of hAm cDNA was cloned and linked into the vector plasmid, the recombinant plasmid FUAmW was confirmed by double enzyme digestion and sequence analysis. Recombinant lentivirus was prepared from 293T cells by polytheylenimine (PEI)-mediated transient cotransfection. The hPDLCs and 293T cells were infected with the generated lentivirus. The infection efficiency was analysed by detection of green fluorescence protein (GFP) with fluorescent microscope and flow cytometer 72 hours later. The expression of hAm gene was detected by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The sequence of inserted fragment in recombinant plasmid was identical to the hAm sequence reported in Genebank. Green fluorescence was visible under fluorescent microscope, FCM assay showed that positive percentage was 69.46% and 33.99% in 293T and hPDLCs, respectively. The targeted gene was obtained in the experimental groups by RT-PCR. The recombinan lentiviral vector of hAm gene is constructed successfully and it could be transfected into cultured hPDLCs. hAm gene and seed cells may be used for further study in the fields periodontal tissue engineering.

    ABSTRACT: To construct a recombinant lentiviral vector for human amelogenin and to investigate the amelogenin expression of recombinant lentivirus FUAmW in 293T cell line. A lentiviral expression vector for human amelogenin was constructed by recombinant DNA technique. Recombinant plasmid FUAmW was confirmed by restriction endonuclease and DAN sequence analysis respectively. High tites recombinant lentivirus were prepared from 293T cells by polytheylenimine(PEI) mediated transient cotransfection. The generated recombinant FUGW viruses and recombinant FUAmW viruses were used to infect 293T cells, respectively. The expression of human amelogenin in 293T cells was detected by RT-RCR and Western-blot. The sequence analysis of recombinant plasmid FUAmW showed that the human amelogenin encoding mature protein was inserted into lentiviral vector FUW accurately. Human amelogenin expressions were observed in 293T cells 72 hours after infecting with recombinant FUAmW viruses. The recombinant lentiviral vector FUAmW can be constructed correctly and transfected into 293T cells. Human amelogenin can be expressed in 293T cells infected with recombinant FUAmw virus.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of enamel matrix protein (EMP) on wound filling of periodontal ligament cells (PDLC) and gingival fibroblasts (GF), using an in vitro model of wound healing. In vitro wound models were mechanically created in subconfluent cultures of human GF and PDLC, by removing a 7mm wide band of the cell layer respectively. Wounded cultures were then incubated for a time periods up to 2,6,9 days in a media containing 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS), stimulated with EMP (100microg/ml) simultaneously, negative controls were those cultured only with media containing 10% FBS. Slides were fixed, stained with crystal violet and cell filling area within the wound boundaries was quantified by computer assisted histomorphometry. Statistical analysis was performed by SAS6.12 software package to determine the differences between the time points and groups. in the control group, there was difference between GF and PDLC in filling wound in vitro over 9 days of healing period. The difference was significant (P<0.05) at the 9th day after wound creating, with GF filling the wound faster than PDLC. In contrast, under the stimulation of EMP (100microg/ml), there was no significant difference (P>0.05) between the filling rate of two types of periodontal cells at the 6th, 9th day after wound creating. GF has a significantly greater ability to fill a wound than PDLC. However, EMP appears to exert an influence on cells that is compatible with improved wound healing, especially in that of PDLC.

    ABSTRACT: The present study is to evaluate the effects of enamel matrix proteins(EMPs) on the attachment, spreading and proliferation of human bone marrow stromal cells(hBMSCs) in vitro. Human BMSCs were obtained from human bone marrow aspiration and cultured in DMEM medium with 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS). EMPs was added into medium in several concentrations (50,100, 200, 300 microg/ml) as experimental groups. BMSCs were cultured without EMPs as control group. Attachment ability of hBMSCs was detected by counting cell number. Cell spreading rates were performed at various culture times by analysis of micrographs taken at predetermined sites of each wells. Cell proliferation rates were assessed by MTT assay. Data was statistically analyzed with SAS6.12 software for one-way ANOVA. It was shown that BMSCs were cultured successfully in vitro. There was no significant change between the control group and experimental groups in cell attachment and cell spreading rate. However, the proliferation of BMSCs was significantly stimulated by EMPs in a dose- and time-dependent manner. EMPs at a concentration of 200 microg/ml significantly enhanced BMSCs proliferation (P < 0.05). EMPs could promote the proliferating ability of human BMSCs, but have no effects on its attachment and spreading.Supported by National "863" Project (Grant No. 2002AA205013), Shanghai Municipal Education Development Fund(Grant No.2002-02) and Research Fund of Science and Technology Committee of Shanghai Municipality (Grant No.04dz05601).

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the effect of Yishenqinghuo recipe on periodontal inflammation and immunity of rats with experimental periodontitis. 12 months old Spague-Dawley rats were used in this study. 78 rats were randomly divided into 4 groups. group A: control group (with no periodontitis, fed with the same dosage of saline as group D); group B: model group (with periodontitis, fed with the same dosage of saline as group D); group C: high dosage group (with periodontitis, fed with double dosage of medicine as group D); group D: equivalent dosage group (with periodontitis, fed with clinical equivalent effective dosage of medicine). After being gavaged with medicine/saline for 3 months, the periodontium was analyzed through histological slices; and the amount of CD4+T,CD8+T, the ratio of CD4+T/CD8+T, IL-2 and IL-1beta in peripheral blood were detected by flow cytometry and ELISA. All the results were analyzed by ANOVA, with the use of SAS 6.04 software package. It was found that the periodontal inflammation of group C and D were improved significantly; the ratio of CD4+T/CD8+T in peripheral blood for this 4 groups were 3.55 +/- 0.94, 2.42 +/- 0.75, 3.23 +/- 1.14 and 3.29 +/- 0.83; the level of IL-2 and IL-1beta were (36.03+/- 2.63/179.04 +/- 17.29) pg/ml, (25.18 +/- 3.08/306.09 +/- 13.38) pg/ml, (38.44 +/- 2.58/176.33 +/- 45.38) pg/ml and (36.81 +/- 2.45/182.13 +/- 43.97) pg/ml. Compared with group B, the ratio of CD4+T/CD8+T for group C and D was significantly rised (P < 1.05); the level of IL-2 increased significantlyand IL-1beta decreased accordingly (P < 0.01). However, there was no significant difference between group C and D (P > 0.05). From this study, we conclude that Yishenqinghuo recipe can improve the periodontal inflammation and adjust the immunity of rats with experimental periodontitis.
