Human periodontal ligament stem cells (PDLSCs) from extracted third molar teeth are a type of adult stem cell originating from dental tissue. PDLSCs are known to have a self-renewal capacity and multi-lineage differentiation potential. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), an angiogenic/vasculogenic factor, has been shown to stimulate endothelial cell(More)
This paper presents an exhaustive method to characterize the interconnect capacitances with taking the floating dummy-tills into account. Results of the case study with typical floating dummy-fills show that the inter-layer capacitances are also an important factor in the electrical consideration for the dummy-fills. An efficient field solving algorithm is(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the neurogenic differentiation of human dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs), periodontal ligament stem cells (PDLSCs), and stem cells from apical papilla (SCAP). MATERIALS AND METHODS After induction of neurogenic differentiation using commercial differentiation medium, expression levels of neural(More)
This study examined the effect of dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) that were supplemented with vitamin E on lipid peroxidation, glutathione-dependent detoxifying enzyme system activity, and lipogenic fatty acid synthase (FAS) expression in rat liver. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were fed semipurified diets containing either 1% (w/w) corn oil or 10%(More)
PURPOSE Implant stability quotient (ISQ) values have been supposed to predict implant stability. However, the relationship between ISQ values and bone-to-implant contact ratio (BIC%) which is one of the predictors of implant stability is still unclear. The aim of the present study was to evaluate initial ISQ values in relation to BIC% using rabbit model. (More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate a comparison of implant bone bed preparation with Er,Cr:YSGG laser and conventional drills on the relationship between implant stability quotient (ISQ) values and implant insertion variables. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty implants were inserted into two different types of pig rib bone. One group was prepared(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate bone response to anodized titanium implants coated with the extract of black cohosh, Asarum Sieboldii, and pharbitis semen. MATERIALS AND METHODS FORTY ANODIZED TITANIUM IMPLANTS WERE PREPARED AS FOLLOWS: group 1 was for control; group 2 were implants soaked in a solution containing triterpenoids extracted(More)
PURPOSE The aim of present study was to identify characteristic and response of mouse bone marrow (BM) derived low-adherent bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMMSCs) obtained by quantification of extracellular matrix (ECM). MATERIALS AND METHODS Non-adherent cells acquired by ECM coated dishes were termed low-adherent BMMSCs and these cells were(More)
PURPOSE These days, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have received worldwide attention because of their potentiality in tissue engineering for implant dentistry. The purpose of this study was to evaluate various growth inducing factors in media for improvement of acquisition of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMMSCs) and colony forming unit-fibroblast(More)
We have determined the complete genome sequence of keunjorong mosaic virus (KjMV). The KjMV genome is composed of 9,611 nucleotides, excluding the 3′-terminal poly(A) tail. It contains two open reading frames (ORFs), with the large one encoding a polyprotein of 3,070 amino acids and the small overlapping ORF encoding a PIPO protein of 81 amino acids. The(More)
