The generation of Dspp-null mice that develop tooth defects similar to human dentinogenesis imperfecta III with enlarged pulp chambers, increased width of predentin zone, hypomineralization, and pulp exposure are reported.
High mobility group A2 is a target for miRNA-98 in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma
It is reported that HMGA2 expression in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) cells is regulated in part by miRNA-98 (miR-98), and the demonstration that miRNA profiles are altered during hypoxia and repress a genotoxic response indicates that changes in microenvironment in eukaryotes mimic those of lower species and plants.
Mammalian target of rapamycin, a molecular target in squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck.
The Akt-mTOR pathway is identified as a potential therapeutic target for HNSCC, and may provide the rationale for the early clinical evaluation of rapamycin and its analogues in patients with HNS CC.

Evidence is provided that the Akt signaling pathway may represent a biologically relevant target for a novel antineoplastic agent, UCN-01, which recently has been shown to be active in cellular and xenograft models for HNSCC at concentrations safely achievable in clinically relevant situations.

Differences in behavior between PDL cells and gingival fibroblasts may prove important in designing appropriate clinical therapies directed at stimulating periodontal regeneration.

The data suggest that EGF and EGFr in the oral epithelium of HGF gingiva may stimulate epithelial cell proliferation, with the resultant apical migration of the oral ephelium and formation of the slender deep epithelial papillae; however, without hyperplastic alterations.

The results presented here suggest that CsA stimulatory induction of NG fibroblast proliferation is mediated via TGF-beta1 in an autocrine fashion.
