[Expression of matrix extracellular phosphoglycoprotein mRNA in human periodontal ligament cell osteogenic differentiation].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To investigate the mineralization capacity of periodontal ligament stem cells (PDLC) by determining the mRNA expressions of alkaline phosphatase (ALP), osteocalcin (OCN) and matrix extracellular phosphoglycoprotein (MEPE) and to explore the potential of MEPE as a differentiation marker for PDLC, and its possible function in PDLC osteogenic… (More)
