Cellular and molecular events in osseointegration at the dental implant surface remain largely unknown. We hypothesized that bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) participate in this process, and that osterix (Osx) promotes implant osseointegration. To prove this hypothesis, we tracked double-labeled BMSCs in implantation sites created in nude mice transplanted with these cells. We also inserted implants into the femurs of our established transgenic mice after local administration of viruses… CONTINUE READING
