- The role of cell surface markers and enamel matrix derivatives on human periodontal ligament mesenchymal progenitor responses in vitroPhilippe Kemoun
Faculty of Odontology, University Paul Sabatier, 3 chemin des Maraichers, 31062 Toulouse Cedex, France
Biomaterials 32:7375-88. 2011..We show that the effect of EMD on cell proliferation and migration is mediated through the amelogenin it contains, while the differentiation of these progenitor cells to cell types of mineralized tissue is mainly due to BMP signaling...
- Human dental follicle cells acquire cementoblast features under stimulation by BMP-2/-7 and enamel matrix derivatives (EMD) in vitroPhilippe Kemoun
Laboratory of Oral Biology, Faculty of Odontology, University Paul Sabatier, 3 chemin des Maraichers, 31062, Toulouse Cedex, France
Cell Tissue Res 329:283-94. 2007..Thus, EMD may activate HDFC toward the cementoblastic phenotype, an effect mainly (but not exclusively) involving both exogenous and endogenous BMP-dependent pathways...
