Disease relevance of Odontogenic Cysts


High impact information on Odontogenic Cysts

  • Expression of keratin 10/11 was related to the presence of a well-ordered epithelial lining and was detected in isolated cells in 4/32 non-keratinizing cysts and in the upper suprabasal cell layers of 17/18 keratocysts [6].
  • The expression of keratins, CEA, EMA, and rat liver antigen (RLA) and the presence of Ki67+ proliferating cells were studied in the epithelial linings of 50 odontogenic cysts using an indirect immunoperoxidase method on acetone-fixed frozen sections [6].
  • In this study, we investigated the effects of positive pressure on the expression of interleukin-1alpha (IL-1alpha), matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) in odontogenic keratocysts to determine whether this pressure stimulates inflammatory cytokine production and signaling of osteoclastogenic events [7].
  • Immunolocalization of PTCH protein in odontogenic cysts and tumors [8].
  • Thus, IL-1alpha may up-regulate proMMP-2 activation by increasing the expression of MT1-MMP in the fibroblasts isolated from odontogenic keratocysts synergistically with type I collagen [9].
