    Eur J Med Res 11:351-4. 2006
    ..These data suggest that the experimental animal model muCT and 3D image are extremely useful for follow-up of reconstruction of animal bone defects and that the atelocollagen gel is effective as a carrier of rhBMP-2...

    Takako Shimizu
    Matsumoto Dental University Graduate School of Oral Medicine, Shiojiri, Japan
    Angle Orthod 75:993-5. 2005
    ..Positive reactions to osteopontin, as a control, were detected in the cytoplasm of all layers, although they varied from published data...

    Norimasa Okafuji
    Department of Orthodontics, Matsumoto Dental University, Shiojiri, Japan
    Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 130:612-21. 2006
    ..The cellular mechanisms controlling distraction osteogenesis are not well understood. The purpose of this study was to examine the role of cell proliferation in the regulation of mandibular distraction osteogenesis...

    T Shimizu
    Division of Hard Tissue Research, Matsumoto Dental University, Institute of Oral Science, Shiojiri, Japan
    Eur J Med Res 13:4-6. 2008
    ..At just after birth, Jagged1 was observed in a portion of almost all layer cells in their cytoplasm and membrane. These results suggest that Jagged1 plays an essential role for mandibular condylar cartilage morphogenesis and development...
