Side Population Cells Isolated from Porcine Dental Pulp Tissue with Self‐Renewal and Multipotency for Dentinogenesis, Chondrogenesis, Adipogenesis, and Neurogenesis
Dental pulp has the potential to form dentin as a regenerative response to caries. This regeneration is mediated by stem/progenitor cells. Thus, stem cell therapy might be of potential utility inExpand

Removal of Oxidative DNA Damage via FEN1-Dependent Long-Patch Base Excision Repair in Human Cell Mitochondria
ABSTRACT Repair of oxidative DNA damage in mitochondria was thought limited to short-patch base excision repair (SP-BER) replacing a single nucleotide. However, certain oxidative lesions cannot beExpand

Chronic effects of perfluorooctanesulfonate exposure on immunotoxicity in adult male C57BL/6 mice
A paucity of data exists to corroborate the few studies that report immune suppression after exposure to perfluorooctanesulfonate (PFOS). In this study, adult male C57BL/6 mice were exposed to PFOSExpand

Structure of the receptor-activated human TRPC6 and TRPC3 ion channels
TRPC6 and TRPC3 are receptor-activated nonselective cation channels that belong to the family of canonical transient receptor potential (TRPC) channels. They are activated by diacylglycerol, a lipidExpand
