Prior to the present study, it had been reported that IL-15 protein was expressed in a constitutive manner in basal epithelial keratinocytes in healthy human gingivae, and that IL-15 and IL15-R a chain mRNA could be detected in human gingival epithelial cells (HGEC) by RT-PCR analysis.
It remains uncertain what kind of intracellular signal transduction is involved in IL-15R mediated iNOS expression in TR146, though several signaling pathways have been implicated in the up-regulation of iNOS mRNA in HGEC. Among these factors, NF-kappaB is a pivotal transcription inducer of iNOS expression in various cells.
It is a potent regulator of iNOS expression by human gingival epithelial cells (HGEC) and is involved in innate immunity in the mucosal epithelium.
