OBJECTIVES UDP-glucuronocyltransferase 2B7 (UGT2B7) catalyzes glucuronidation of various types of endogenous compounds and drugs, but the genetic basis of interindividual variation in the metabolism of these substances has not yet been sufficiently elucidated. In addition, information about single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and haplotypes of the UGT2B7(More)
Mechanical stress produced by orthodontic forces is a factor in the remodeling of periodontal ligaments (PDLs) and alveolar bone. It has been reported that the expression of a number of cytokines associated with osteoclastogenesis is upregulated when compressive forces act on osteoblasts and PDL cells. The present study investigated the effects of(More)
Bone remodeling is an important factor in orthodontic tooth movement. During orthodontic treatment, osteoclasts are subjected to various mechanical stimuli, and this promotes or inhibits osteoclast differentiation and fusion. It has been previously reported that the release from tensile force induces osteoclast differentiation. However, little is known(More)
