The distribution of fibronectin and laminin in the murine periodontal membrane, indicating possible functional roles in the apical migration of the junctional epithelium.

Abstract

Periodontal tissue shows various morphological changes with ageing. A typical example of these changes is the apical migration of the junctional epithelium. The distribution of fibronectin and laminin was investigated by immunofluorescent and immunoelectron-microscope methods in mice to clarify any possible functional roles of these proteins in the apical… (More)
