An organotypic in vitro model that mimics the dento-epithelial junction.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The dento-epithelial junction forms the primary periodontal defense structure against oral microbes. The cells of the junctional epithelium (JE) attach both to a basement membrane (BM) facing the connective tissue and to a hard dental tissue by structurally similar but molecularly distinct mechanisms. Here we describe a new organotypic cell… (More)
