[The role of basic fibroblast growth factor on expression of mineralization of periodontal ligament cell population and clones].

OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) on mineraliztion of PDL cell clone. METHODS The PDL tissue that derived from three human donors was cultured and cells were cloned. The mineralizing ability were detected with or without bFGF treatment in the presence of dexamethasone. Cloned progenitor populations were assayed for… CONTINUE READING
