Figure 4: P gingivalis-modulated RANKL and OPG mRNA expression. Following osteoblast culture in the presence or absence of live and heatinactivated P gingivalis (107 bacteria), total RNA was extracted from the osteoblasts and RT-PCRs were performed using specifi c primers for RANK, RANKL, OPG, and GAPDH. P gingivalis-infected cultures and noninfected cultures were compared. Photos are of representative gels of three separate experiments
