High impact information on Jaw Cysts

  • In this study, we investigated the effects of IL-1alpha on the secretion and activation of MMP-9 in odontogenic jaw cysts [1].
  • Cytokeratin expression patterns in jaw cyst linings with metaplastic epithelium [2].
  • The amount of tryptase was further studied by Western-blotting and measurement of trypsin-like activity from the neutral salt extracts obtained from different types of jaw cysts [3].
  • Thirty-six fluids from non-keratinizing jaw cysts have been examined together with autologous sera by immunoelectrophoresis and double diffusion in agar or agrose gels [4].
  • METHOD AND MATERIALS: The files on odontogenic jaw cysts treated between 1989 and 2001 in the Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology Diagnosis Service at the Department of Oral Medicine and Oral Surgery, Faculty of Dentistry, Jordan University of Science and Technology, were reviewed [5].

Chemical compound and disease context of Jaw Cysts


Biological context of Jaw Cysts


Gene context of Jaw Cysts

  • AIM: To determine the immunocytochemical pattern of expression of transforming growth factor (TGF) alpha, epidermal growth factor (EGF), and TGF beta in the three most common types of odontogenic jaw cyst [11].
  • However, CK expression in metaplastic squamous cells has not been explored in depth and the origin of metaplastic epithelial linings of the jaw cysts has not been sufficiently investigated [2].
  • Immunocytochemical expression of parathyroid hormone related protein (PTHrP) in odontogenic jaw cysts [12].
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to isolate and to identify an antimicrobial peptide, human alpha-defensin-1 (HNP-1) in jaw cyst fluid [10].
  • Free radicals produced in the fluid of jaw cysts were directly measured at room temperature using ESR [13].
