AbstractObjective: The aim of the present study was to determine sequence variations in the active centre of the Arg-X-specific protease encoding genes rgpA and rgpB of clinical Porphyromonas gingivalis isolates and to analyse their prevalence in periodontitis patients before and 3 months after mechanical periodontal therapy. Background: Genetic diversity at nucleotides 281, 283, 286 and 331 has been shown to result in amino acid substitutions in the catalytic domain of RgpA and RgpB that affect the substrate specificity and thus may influence the efficacy of Arg-X-protease specific inhibitors. Methods: Sequence analysis of rgpA and rgpB genes in clinical P. gingivalis strains isolated from subgingival plaque samples of 82 periodontitis patients before and 3 months after mechanical supra- and subgingival debridement was performed. Results: No specific variation within the rgpA sequence was observed. However, the rgpB sequence in the region of the active centre showed five different rgpB genotypes, which were named NYPN, NSSN, NSSK, NYPK and DYPN according to the derived amino acid substitution. Porphyromonas gingivalis genotype NYPN was detected in 27 patients (32.9%) before and in 8 patients (9.8%) after therapy, NSSN in 26 (31.7%) and 10 (12.2%), NSSK in 22 (26.8%) and 2 (2.4%), NYPK in 5 (6.2%) and 1 (1.2%), and DYPN in 1 patient (1.2%) and 0 patients (0%), respectively. Only one patient (1.2%) harboured two P. gingivalis rgpB genotypes (NSSK/NYPN) before treatment; these were no longer detected after therapy. Conclusion: The results indicate that five rgpB genotypes are maintained in natural populations of P. gingivalis. These data may be of importance with regard to the development of specific rgpB inhibitors. © Blackwell Munksgaard 2005.
