The distribution of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) in periodontal ligament (PDL) tissue was investigated in samples which were obtained from freshly extracted human teeth. The PDL tissue was collected by scraping, and bFGF was identified and localized by immunohistochemistry. Fibroblasts, endothelial cells, some fibrocytes and extracellular matrix (ECM) stained positively for bFGF. It was observed that cells from healthy PDL stained more intensely than those from PDL of teeth associated… CONTINUE READING
