A disintegrin and metalloproteinase 17 (ADAM17) protein Western analysis showing 4 representative samples in each group. ADAM17 protein levels were quantified on the basis of β-actin levels. ADAM17 protein corresponding to molecular weight 85 kDa was shown to be expressed in all samples including healthy gingiva. The expression levels of tumor necrosis factor-α converting enzyme were increased in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) than in control healthy subjects. Group 1: healthy gingiva from systemically healthy person. Group 2: inflamed gingiva from patient with chronic periodontitis. Group 3: inflamed gingiva from patient with chronic periodontitis and type 2 DM.
