Graphs showing the average amounts (ratio of Cathepsin D/ β-actin) and standard deviation of Cathepsin D level in groups 1, 2 and 3. In the inflamed gingiva (with or without diabetes, group 2 and group 3), the levels of Cathepsin D were higher than those of healthy gingiva. Group 1: healthy gingiva from systemically healthy person. Group 2: inflamed gingiva from patient with chronic periodontitis. Group3: inflamed gingiva from patient with chronic periodontitis and type 2 diabetes mellitus. aSignificant difference between group 1 and group 2 (p<0.05). bSignificant difference between group 2 and group 3 (p<0.05). cSignificant difference between group 1 and group 3 (p<0.05).
