Abstract

Both skin and gingival fibroblasts in the Papillon-Lefévre patient synthesized Type I and Type III collagen in a ratio very similar to fibroblasts of control cells. The only abnormality appeared to be elevated levels of collagen and protein synthesis by gingival cells derived from the Papillon-Lefévre patient.
