    Resting salivary flow independently associated with oral malodor

    Dryness of the oral cavity is considered one cause of oral malodor. However, it is unclear which of the factors regulating the wetness of the oral cavity are involved in oral malodor development. This study in...

    Characterization of a potential ABC-type bacteriocin exporter protein from Treponema denticola

    Treponema denticola is strongly associated with the development of periodontal disease. Both synergistic and antagonistic effects are observed among bacterial species in the process of biofilm formation. Bacterio...

    Krüppel-like factor 4 expression in oral carcinoma cells and hypermethylation at the gene promoter

    Krüppel-like factor 4 (KLF4) is a transcription factor regulating proliferation-differentiation balance of epithelium, and down-regulated in less-differentiated and advanced oral carcinomas. Although the expre...
