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)
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)
