    ..In conclusion, the maximal expression of MyD88 in the DF of postnatal day 3 rats may contribute to the major burst of osteoclastogenesis needed for eruption by up-regulating MCP-1 and RANKL expression. ..

  3. Wise G, Frazier Bowers S, D Souza R. Cellular, molecular, and genetic determinants of tooth eruption. Crit Rev Oral Biol Med. 2002;13:323-34 pubmed
    ..Cbfa1 is also expressed at high levels by the dental follicle cells. This review concludes with a discussion of the several human conditions that result in a failure of or delay in tooth eruption...
  4. Wise G, Ding D, Yao S. Regulation of secretion of osteoprotegerin in rat dental follicle cells. Eur J Oral Sci. 2004;112:439-44 pubmed
    ..Thus, a reduction in secretion of the OPG protein at defined times may promote the osteoclastogenesis and alveolar bone resorption needed for eruption, and enhancement of OPG secretion at other times may promote alveolar bone formation...
  5. Liu D, Yao S, Pan F, Wise G. Chronology and regulation of gene expression of RANKL in the rat dental follicle. Eur J Oral Sci. 2005;113:404-9 pubmed
    ..Bone morphogenetic protein-2 acts to down-regulate RANKL expression in vitro and, in vivo, may promote alveolar bone growth in the basal region of the tooth...

  8. Wise G, Yao S, Henk W. Bone formation as a potential motive force of tooth eruption in the rat molar. Clin Anat. 2007;20:632-9 pubmed
    ..Thus, SEM indicates that the motive force of tooth eruption likely is bone formation at the base of the alveolar crypt and this osteogenesis may relate to BMP-2 production in the dental follicle. ..
  9. Yao S, Prpic V, Pan F, Wise G. TNF-alpha upregulates expression of BMP-2 and BMP-3 genes in the rat dental follicle--implications for tooth eruption. Connect Tissue Res. 2010;51:59-66 pubmed publisher
    ..Immunostaining and ELISA showed that BMP-2 and BMP-3 were synthesized and secreted. This study suggests that TNF-alpha can upregulate the expression of bone formation genes that may be needed for tooth eruption. ..
