OBJECTIVE Hydrogen sulfide (H2S), one of endogenous gaseous signalling molecules, can be induced by mechanical force stimulation on human periodontal ligament cells (hPDLCs). Little is known about the mechanism of H2S on the osteogenic differentiation although previous studies have demonstrated that H2S stimulated or inhibited osteoclastic differentiation… CONTINUE READING
