BACKGROUND The use of suitable cells transplanted into periodontal osseous defects appears to be a powerful strategy to promote periodontal tissue regeneration. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) isolated from bone marrow have the potential for multilineage differentiation. The purpose of this study was to examine whether auto-transplantation of MSCs into(More)
Dec2, a member of the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) superfamily, has been shown to function as a transcriptional repressor and is implicated in cell proliferation and differentiation. In addition, Dec2 transcripts exhibit a striking circadian oscillation in the suprachiasmatic nucleus. To identify the molecular mechanisms by which Dec2 regulates gene(More)
Dec2, a member of the basic helix-loop-helix superfamily, is a recently confirmed regulatory protein for the clockwork system. Transcripts of Dec2, as well as those of its related gene Dec1, exhibit a striking circadian oscillation in the suprachiasmatic nucleus, and Dec2 inhibits transcription from the Per1 promoter induced by Clock/Bmal1 [Honma, Kawamoto,(More)
