Gene analysis of signal transduction factors and transcription factors in periodontal ligament cells following application of dynamic strain

Abstract

Orthodontic treatment is usually associated with the application of forces to teeth and periodontium. Instrumental in transmitting these forces are the cells of the periodontal ligament (PDL). In the present study, we used an established strain model to investigate the potential role of biophysical stimulation in modulating the gene expression pattern of… (More)
