MicroRNAs are a highly conserved group of small, non-coding RNA molecules, which are 19-25 nucleotides in size. Previously thought to be evolutionary debris with no evident function, these small RNAs have been found to control gene expression primarily by silencing the gene. MicroRNAs are critical to cell physiology and development. They are also implicated(More)
AIM Dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) in permanent teeth and stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous (SHED) teeth are unique sources of mesenchymal stem cells. The aim of this study was to compare the growth characteristics and morphology of DPSCs and SHED and their immuno-phenotype using CD73 and CD146 in the 1st, 3rd, and 5th passage of cell culture.

Results In the study population, 92.3% of individuals had acquired the infection through heterosexual contact. The mean age of infected males and females was 35±8 and 30±8 years respectively and the mean CD4 count in males and females was 385.53±226.76 and 284.36 ±278.28 cells/μL respectively (p<0.05). Patients having CD4 count < 200 (n=908) had more number(More)
