Morphology and functional roles of synoviocytes in the joint.
TLDR
For an exact understanding of the mechanism of arthritis, it is needed to establish the morphological background of synoviocytes as well as their functions under normal conditions. Expand
Immunohistochemical localization of periostin in tooth and its surrounding tissues in mouse mandibles during development.
TLDR
The findings suggest that periostin is involved at the sites of the cell-to-matrix interaction, serving as adhesive equipment for bearing mechanical forces, including occlusal force and tooth eruption. Expand
Immunolocalization of aquaporin-1 in the mechanoreceptive Ruffini endings in the periodontal ligament
TLDR
It is suggested that AQP1 controls water transport in the periodontal Ruffini endings of the rat incisors and trigeminal ganglion, a primary mechanoreceptor of the water-selective channel. Expand
Synovial membrane in the temporomandibular joint--its morphology, function and development.
TLDR
The expression of an estrogen receptor alpha-immunoreaction in the fibroblast-like type B cells may explain the etiology of temporomandibular disorders at a higher frequency in females than in males, suggesting that TMJ is a target tissue for estrogen. Expand
Immunohistochemical detection of ENaCbeta in the terminal Schwann cells associated with the periodontal Ruffini endings of the rat incisor.
TLDR
Findings suggest that ENaCbeta is a key mechanotransducing channel in the periodontal Ruffini endings, and probably, the terminal Schwann cells together with the axon terminals regulate Mechanotransduction in theperiodontal endings. Expand
Transient expression of heat shock protein (Hsp)25 in the dental pulp and enamel organ during odontogenesis in the rat incisor.
TLDR
Immunocytochemical data suggest that the Hsp 25 molecule is involved in reinforcement of the cell layer following cell movement during odontogenesis and in the formation and maintenance of the ruffled border of RA. Expand
Convergence of selected inputs from sensory afferents to trigeminal premotor neurons with possible projections to masseter motoneurons in the rabbit
TLDR
It is suggested that trigeminal premotor interneurons with projections to the NVmot-mass fall into two broad categories, those with inputs from the IAN and/or ION and those with input from the MassN, possibly muscle spindle afferents, and no neuron receiving inputs from both. Expand
Temporal expression of immunoreactivity for heat shock protein 25 (Hsp25) in the rat periodontal ligament following transection of the inferior alveolar nerve
TLDR
Hsp25 in the regenerating nerve fibers and denervated Schwann cells most likely serves in modulating actin dynamics and as a cellular inhibitor of apoptosis, respectively. Expand
Reduced osteoblastic population and defective mineralization in osteopetrotic (op/op) mice.
TLDR
Despite the osteopetrotic model, von Kossa's staining demonstrated patchy unmineralized areas in the op/op diaphyses, indicating that a lower population and/or the activity of osteoblasts resulted in defective mineralization in the bone. Expand
Detailed Process of Bone Remodeling After Achievement of Osseointegration in a Rat Implantation Model
TLDR
Findings indicate that continuous bone remodeling after the achievement of osseointegration causes replacement of the damaged bone by compact bone as well as an improvement in bone quality. Expand
