Calcitonin in human odontoclasts regulates root resorption activity via protein kinase A


Calcitonin is a known inhibitor of osteoclastic bone resorption, but it remains uncertain whether calcitonin also regulates human odontoclastic activity, particularly during the physiological process of root resorption. In this study, we examined the expression of calcitonin receptors in human odontoclasts and the effect of calcitonin on root resorption… (More)
