Role of ferritin in the cytodifferentiation of periodontal ligament cells.

This study investigated the expression and functions of ferritin, which is involved in osteoblastogenesis, in the periodontal ligament (PDL). The PDL is one of the most important tissues for maintaining the homeostasis of teeth and tooth-supporting tissues. Real-time PCR analyses of the human PDL revealed abundant expression of ferritin light polypeptide… CONTINUE READING
