Özet

Background: beta -glucuronidase (betaG) is one of the enzymes involved in the destruction of non-collagenous components of the extracellular matrix. It is also considered an indicator or predictor of periodontal disease activity. The present study was conducted to determine the presence and the levels of betaG activity in gingival tissue and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) in periodontal disease and health status. The validity of 2 expressions of data, total betaG activity versus betaG concentration, and the correlations between clinical periodontal status and betaG profile was also evaluated.
