BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Cell adhesion plays important roles in maintaining the structural integrity of connective tissues and sensing changes in the biomechanical environment of cells. The objective of the present investigation was to extend our understanding of the effect of cyclic mechanical strain on the expression of adhesion-related genes by human periodontal ligament cells. MATERIAL AND METHODS Cultured periodontal ligament cells were subjected to a cyclic in-plane tensile deformation… CONTINUE READING
