BACKGROUND Fibroblasts are the predominant cells of the periodontal ligament and the gingiva and have important roles in the function and regeneration of the tooth support apparatus. The goal of this study was to investigate the possible differences in the adhesion properties and expression of extracellular matrix (ECM) receptors among different fibroblast populations. METHODS The adhesion of gingival (GF), dermal (DF), and periodontal ligament fibroblast (PDLF) cultures to ECM proteins… CONTINUE READING
