There is considerable evidence that proliferation and growth in the mandibular condylar cartilage (MCC) might be altered after a change in the postural position of the mandible. However, almost nothing is known about the molecular basis of this response. Using semiquantitative reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction, we examined the expression of insulin-like growth factor-1 (Igf-1), fibroblast growth factor-2 (Fgf-2), and their receptors (Igf-1r, Fgfr1, Fgfr2, and Fgfr3) in the MCC of… CONTINUE READING
