In the present study, we investigated the role of magnesium transporter subtype 1 (MagT1), a selective Mg transporter protein, in the osteogenic differentiation of rat bone marrow stem cells (rBMSCs). Osteogenic differentiation was monitored by the expressions of alkaline phosphatase (ALP), osteocalcin (OCN), collagen-1 (COL-1) and runt-related(More)
INTRODUCTION Matrilin-2 and matrilin-4 are members of the matrilin family displaying broad tissue distribution. We recently reported that matrilin-2 showed significant down-regulation during the odontogenic differentiation of dental pulp cells (DPCs). It is reported that matrilin-4 was the only extracellular matrix biogenesis and organization-related gene(More)
Tooth eruption is a complex physiological process involving both osteogenesis and bone resorption. Signals from the dental follicle (DF) regulate bone remodeling during tooth eruption. Interleukin-1α (IL-1α) may be the initial promoter of tooth eruption, whereas colony‑stimulating factor‑1 (CSF‑1) may attract monocytes into the DF and stimulate osteoclast(More)
