The receptor activator of NFkappaB ligand, RANKL, is one of the key regulatory molecules in osteoclast formation and function. We examined RANKL localization in the periodontal tissues during experimental movement of rat molars. To produce orthodontic force, an elastic band was inserted between the upper first and second molars for 4 days, and the dissected maxillae were subjected to light and electron microscopic immunocytochemical examination for RANKL. Expression of RANKL protein was… CONTINUE READING
