Spatial and temporal changes in the distribution of proteoglycans during avian neural crest development.
In this study, we describe the distribution of various classes of proteoglycans and their potential matrix ligand, hyaluronan, during neural crest development in the trunk region of the chickenExpand

Root-end Filling Materials Alter Fibroblast Differentiation
Root-end filling materials are commonly used following endodontic surgical procedures; however, their effect on adjacent soft tissues is poorly understood. We predict that, due to the differences inExpand

A spatial and temporal analysis of dorsal root and sympathetic ganglion formation in the avian embryo.
The present study explores the formation of the dorsal root and sympathetic ganglia in the trunk of the avian embryo. Particular emphasis was given to the timing of gangliogenesis and the relativeExpand

Gingival, dermal, and periodontal ligament fibroblasts express different extracellular matrix receptors.
BACKGROUND Fibroblasts are the predominant cells of the periodontal ligament and the gingiva and have important roles in the function and regeneration of the tooth support apparatus. The goal of thisExpand

Use of microarrays to find novel regulators of periodontal ligament fibroblast differentiation
Periodontal regeneration requires the coordinated movement and differentiation of several cell types in order to re-establish the cementum, periodontal ligament (PDL), and alveolar bone. Cells inExpand

A simple cell motility assay demonstrates differential motility of human periodontal ligament fibroblasts, gingival fibroblasts, and pre-osteoblasts
During periodontal regeneration, multiple cell types can invade the wound site, thereby leading to repair. Cell motility requires interactions mediated by integrin receptors for the extracellularExpand

Avian neural crest cell attachment to laminin: involvement of divalent cation dependent and independent integrins.
The mechanisms of neural crest cell interaction with laminin were explored using a quantitative cell attachment assay. With increasing substratum concentrations, an increasing percentage of neuralExpand

Inhibition of cranial neural crest adhesion in vitro and migration in vivo using integrin antisense oligonucleotides.
Although it is well-established that beta1 integrins play a functional role in the migration of cranial neural crest cells, little is known about the number or importance of their associated alphaExpand

The putative collagen binding peptide hastens periodontal ligament cell attachment to bone replacement graft materials.
BACKGROUND Bone replacement graft (BRG) materials are often used to treat periodontal defects, to promote cellular invasion, and to encourage bone regrowth. Periodontal ligament fibroblasts (PDLF)Expand

Adhesion of human fibroblasts to root-end-filling materials.
This study evaluated the attachment of cultured explants of human periodontal ligament fibroblasts and gingival fibroblasts to different root-end-filling materials. Although periodontal ligament andExpand
