OBJECTIVE To address the question whether dental pulp cells of exfoliating human deciduous teeth have some roles for controlling or regulating the root resorption via secreting key molecules (OPG, RANKL, CSF-1, TGFbeta, MCP-1 and Cbfa-1) in osteoclastogenesis, we used a sensitive reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method for detection of mRNA expressions for the cytokines listed. STUDY DESIGN The dental pulps were retrieved from incisor and molar teeth in the late stage… CONTINUE READING
