BACKGROUND Osteogenic induction and bone formation are heavily affected by environmental factors, including estrogen, estrogen receptors, and coregulatory proteins, such as the recently reported proline-, glutamic acid-, and leucine-rich protein 1(Pelp1). OBJECTIVE To investigate Pelp1 expression in rat bone mesenchymal stem cells (rBMSCs) during cell(More)
The differentiation of periodontal ligament (PDL) progenitor cells is important for maintaining the homeostasis of PDL tissue and alveolar bone. Vitamin C (VC), a water-soluble nutrient that cannot be biosynthesized by humans, is vital for mesenchymal stem cells differentiation and plays an important role in bone remodeling. Therefore, the objective of this(More)
Estrogens and their receptors are important factors involved in periodontal ligament (PDL) tissue health. As a regulator of estrogen receptors (ER), the proline-, glutamic acid-, and leucine-rich protein 1 (PELP1) may play a role in alveolar bone formation and PDL homeostasis. The aim of the present study was to observe PELP1 expression in rat PDL tissue(More)
