This study was designed to examine developing acellular cementum in rat molars by immunohistochemistry, to elucidate (1) how Hertwig’s epithelial root sheath disintegrates and (2) whether epithelial sheath cells transform into cementoblasts through epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT). Initial acellular cementogenesis was divided into three developmental(More)
To elucidate the fate of the epithelial root sheath during initial cellular cementogenesis, we examined developing maxillary first molars of rats by immunohistochemistry for keratin, vimentin, and tissue non-specific alkaline phosphatase (TNALP) and by TdT-mediated dUTP nick end labeling (TUNEL). The advancing root end was divided into three sections, which(More)
We recently demonstrated that both lisinopril and candesartan, an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor and angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker, respectively, attenuate pancreatic inflammation and fibrosis in male Wistar Bonn/Kobori (WBN/Kob) rats. The purpose of the present study was to assess whether combination therapy with low doses of both,(More)
