Yao S, Gutierrez D, Ring S, Liu D, Wise G. Electroporation to deliver plasmid DNA into rat dental tissues. J Gene Med. 2010;12:981-9 pubmed publisher
..This protocol could be used to deliver short hairpin RNA or genes of interest into the dental tissues to regulate tooth eruption. Thus, it may be possible to develop nonsurgical treatments for inducing the eruption of impacted teeth. ..

. The role of dentin matrix protein 1 (DMP1) in regulation of osteogenic differentiation of rat dental follicle stem cells (DFSCs). Arch Oral Biol. 2015;60:546-56 pubmed publisher
..DMP1 is highly expressed in the DFSCs, but minimally expressed in non-stem cell DFC. DMP1 appears to play an important role for osteogenic differentiation of the DFSCs. ..

. Evaluation of bone regeneration potential of dental follicle stem cells for treatment of craniofacial defects. Cytotherapy. 2015;17:1572-81 pubmed publisher
..Similar results were seen when osteogenic-induced DFSC-PCL was transplanted to the critical-size defects. This study demonstrated that transplantation of DFSCs seeded into PCL scaffolds can be used to repair craniofacial defects. ..

..The increase in intracellular Ca2+ stimulated insulin secretion and the expression of genes involved in this process. These findings suggest that cyanidin could be used as a promising agent to stimulate insulin secretion. ..
