Roles of lysophosphatidic acid and the Rho-associated kinase pathway in the migration of dental pulp cells.

Abstract

During the dental pulp repair process, dental pulp cells (DPCs) migrate to the site of injury and differentiate into odontoblasts or odontoblast-like cells. Although migration of DPCs is an important reparative process, the underlying mechanism remains unknown. The objective of this study was to determine the roles of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) and the Rho… (More)
