Orthodontic mechanical tension effects on the myofibroblast expression of alpha-smooth muscle actin.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To detect myofibroblast formation on the tension side during orthodontic tooth movement in vivo and myofibroblast expression of alpha-smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA) induced by tension both in vivo and in vitro. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty 6-week male rats were used in this in vivo study, and the right maxillary first molar was moved mesially… (More)
