The biological mechanisms of nerve adaptation to distraction osteogenesis have not yet been elucidated. This study observed response of Schwann cells in the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) following mandibular lengthening by electron microscopy and immunohistochemistry of S-100 protein, a specific marker of Schwann cells. Unilateral mandibular distraction(More)
This study assessed the changes in the condyle after mandibular lengthening with 2 different rates of distraction (1 mm/day and 2 mm/day). Unilateral mandibular distraction was performed in 8 young adult goats. The animals were sacrificed 8 weeks after the completion of distraction, and the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) specimens were harvested and(More)
21 21 Present study revealed the stimulatory effects of d opioid receptor on intracellular Ca concentration ([Ca ]) in SH-SY5Y cells. i 21 Fura-2 based single cell fluorescence ratio (F345 / F380) was used to monitor the fluctuation of [Ca ]. Application of the selective i 2,5 delta-opioid receptor agonist alone, [D-Pen ]-enkephalin (DPDPE), hardly had any(More)
