Since periodontal ligament (PDL) cells exhibit several osteoblastic traits, we hypothesized that human PDL cells will respond to hormonal stimulation in an osteoblast-like manner. Confluent and pre-confluent PDL cells from six patients were challenged with PTH(1-34). Cell number, ALP, osteocalcin, osteoprotegerin, and RANKL expression were determined… CONTINUE READING
