Determination of Salivary Glycoconjugates and Salivary Ros Levels in Chronic Periodontitis
The research was done as a first step toward using salivary glycoconjugates and reactive oxygen species (ROS) as accurate indicators of chronic periodontitis. Glycoconjugates are crucial biological compounds that serve a variety of roles. They are made up of oligosaccharides of various sizes and complexity that are connected to a non-sugar component such as a lipid or protein. Glycoconjugate structures are frequently convoluted, with complicated biochemical routes. Overproduction of reactive oxygen species is thought to play a role in the disease’s severity. ROS are extremely unstable and have a short half-life, making them difficult to detect. However, at times of stress or disease, ROS levels can skyrocket, causing severe cell structural damage.
