Tooth development is initiated by epithelial-mesenchymal interactions via basement membrane (BM) and growth factors. In the present study, we found that nephronectin (Npnt), a component of the BM, is highly expressed in the developing tooth. Npnt localizes in the BM on the buccal side of the tooth germ and shows an expression pattern opposite that of the dental epithelial stem cell marker Sox2. To identify the roles of Npnt during tooth development, we performed knockdown and overexpression experiments using ex vivo organ and dental epithelial cell cultures...

INTRODUCTION: Hypoxia is a factor in controlling stem cell stemness. We investigated if cobalt chloride (CoCl2), a chemical agent that mimics hypoxia in vitro, affected human dental pulp cell (hDPC) stemness by examining cell proliferation, stem cell marker expression, and osteogenic differentiation. METHODS: hDPCs were cultured with or without 25 or 50 μmol/L CoCl2. The 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay was used to determine cell proliferation...

In recent years, in the effort to find a potential innovative therapy for multiple sclerosis (MS), researchers focused on transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) due to their well-recognized ability to suppress inflammatory/autoimmune responses and exert neuroregenerative properties. MSCs are a heterogeneous subset of pluripotent non-hematopoietic stromal cells that can be isolated from many different adult tissues, characterized by the capability to differentiate into various cell lineages, and to translocate into damaged areas, providing immunomodulatory effects...

Dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) are an attractive cell source for use in cell-based therapy, regenerative medicine, and tissue engineering because DPSCs have high cell proliferation ability and multi-differentiation capacity. However, several problems are associated with the collection and preservation of DPSCs for future cell-based therapy. In addition, the isolation of DPSCs for cryopreservation is time-consuming and expensive. In this study, we developed a novel cryopreservation method for dental pulp tissues that can isolate suitable DPSCs after thawing cryopreserved tissue...

Intravital microscopy of mouse calvarial bone marrow (BM) is a powerful method for studying hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and the BM microenvironment at the cellular level. However, the current method used to access the mouse calvaria allows for only a few imaging times in the same mouse because of scar formation and inflammation induced by multiple surgeries. Longitudinal imaging of the BM may help better understand its microenvironment. In this study, a mouse calvarial window model was developed for longitudinal imaging that involves attaching a cover glass window onto the mouse calvaria and sealing the surrounding exposed area with cyanoacrylate glue and dental cement...
