The goal of this study was to establish mini-swine as a large animal model for stem cell-based pulp regeneration studies. Swine dental pulp stem cells (sDPSCs) were isolated from mini-swine and characterized in vitro. For in vivo studies, we first employed both ectopic and semi-orthotopic study models using severe combined immunodeficiency mice. One is hydroxyapatite-tricalcium phosphate (HA/TCP) model for pulp-dentin complex formation, and the other is tooth fragment model for complete pulp regeneration with new dentin depositing along the canal walls...

The periostin is a matricellular protein present in the human periodontal ligament and human dental pulp-derived cells lines, that up-regulates the in vitro expression of some genes involved in the dentin mineralization, such as dentin matrix protein 1 and P2×7-ion channel receptor. Here we investigated the distribution of periostin in human teeth and periodontal ligaments, mapping in parallel the localization of dentin matrix protein 1 and P2×7-ion channel receptor to establish whether or not they are expressed in the same places as periostin...

OBJECTIVES: Ten-eleven translocation 1 (TET1) is a DNA methylcytosine (mC) dioxygenase discovered recently that can convert 5-mC into 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC). We previously reported that TET1 promotes odontoblastic differentiation of human dental pulp cells (hDPCs). The gene encoding the family with sequence similarity 20, member C (FAM20C) protein, is a potential TET1 target and showed demethylation during odontoblastic differentiation of hDPCs in our previous study. This study aimed to explore whether TET1-mediated hydroxymethylation could activate the FAM20C gene, thereby regulating hDPC differentiation...

RUNX2 is a key regulator of osteogenic differentiation and odontoblastic differentiation. RUNX2 mutations could cause Cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD; OMIM119600), which is featured by abnormal development of bone and teeth. By using microRNA array, we identified a large number of microRNAs that showed different expression between wild-type Runx2 group and mutant groups. The aim of this study is to find out the effect of mmu-miR-1963, which was downregulated in all mutant Runx2 groups, on the ameloblast differentiation of LS8 cells...

OBJECTIVE: Dentin sialophosphoprotein (Dspp) is expressed in odontoblasts and transiently expressed in early ameloblasts. However, the origin of Dspp in ameloblasts remains unclear. Our previous studies demonstrated that copine-7 (CPNE7), a molecule that is secreted by the dental epithelium, is expressed in early ameloblasts and is then translocated to differentiating odontoblasts; its expression levels correlate with odontoblast differentiation under the control of Dspp expression. The objective of this study is to figure out the relationship between CPNE7 and Dspp during amelogenesis...

Undifferentiated odontogenic epithelium and dental papilla cells differentiate into ameloblasts and odontoblasts, respectively, both of which are essential for tooth development. These differentiation processes involve dramatic functional and morphological changes of the cells. For these changes to occur, activation of mitochondrial functions, including ATP production, is extremely important. In addition, these changes are closely related to mitochondrial fission and fusion, known as mitochondrial dynamics...

Wnt and TGF-β signaling pathways participate in regulating a variety of cell fates during organogenesis, including tooth development. Despite well-documented, the specific mechanisms, especially how these two pathways act coordinately in regulating enamel development, remain unknown. In this study, we identified Glycogen Synthase Kinase 3 beta (GSK3β), a negative regulator of Wnt signal pathway, participated in ameloblast differentiation via Wnt and TGF-β pathways during enamel development. In vitro rat mandible culture treated with specific GSK3β inhibitor SB415286 displayed enamel defects, accompanied by disrupted ameloblasts polarization, while odontoblasts and dentin appeared to be unaffected...

Hard tissues including teeth, bone and cartilage have inability or poor capacity to self-renew, especially in large defects. Therefore, repair of damages in these tissues represents a huge challenge in the medical field today. Hard tissue engineering commonly utilizes different stem cell sources as a promising strategy for treating bone, cartilages and tooth defects or disorders. Decades ago, researchers successfully isolated and identified endometrial mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (EnSCs) and discovered their multidifferentiation potential...

Primary cilia, with highly regulated cellular sensory functions, play key roles in tissue development and function maintenance. Intraflagellar transport 140 (IFT140) is a subunit of IFT complex A, which is specialized for retrograde transportation in cilia. Mutations of Ift140 are usually associated with syndromic ciliopathy and may cause isolated diseases such as retinal dystrophy, short ribs, and polycystic kidney. However, the role of IFT140 in tooth development has not been well investigated. In this study, a close relationship between IFT140 and dentin formation is disclosed...

During the treatment of dental caries that has not penetrated the tooth pulp, maintenance of as much unaffected dentine as possible is a major goal during the physical removal of decayed mineral. Damage to dentine leads to release of fossilized factors (transforming growth factor-β [TGF-β] and bone morphogenic protein [BMP]) in the dentine that are believed to stimulate odontoblasts to secrete new "tertiary" dentine (reactionary dentine). This is formed on the pulpal surface of existing dentine and rethickens the dentine...

Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) is a downstream mediator of transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-β1) and TGF-β1-induced CTGF expression is regulated through SMAD pathway. However, there is no literature showing the expression of TGF-β1-SMAD2/3-CTGF signaling pathway during postnatal tooth development and the formation of junctional epithelium (JE). Hence, we aimed to analyze the localization of TGF-β1, CTGF and phosphorylated SMAD2/3 (p-SMAD2/3) in the developing postnatal rat molars. Wistar rats were killed at postnatal (PN) 0...

Multiple studies showed that the cessation of TWIST1 expression is the prerequisite for osteoblasts' maturation. However, recent reports revealed that the function of TWIST1 is different in the dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs), where a high level of TWIST1 expression promoted DPSCs' differentiation. The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of TWIST1 and ID1 on the differentiation process in the human DPSCs. METHODS: TWIST1 and ID1 expression in the DSPCs was modulated by lentivirus transduction...

Cartilaginous fishes (e.g., sharks and skates) possess a postcranial dermal skeleton consisting of tooth-like "denticles" embedded within their skin. As with teeth, the principal skeletal tissue of dermal denticles is dentine. In the head, cranial neural crest cells give rise to the dentine-producing cells (odontoblasts) of teeth. However, trunk neural crest cells are generally regarded as nonskeletogenic, and so the embryonic origin of trunk denticle odontoblasts remains unresolved. Here, we use expression of FoxD3 to pinpoint the specification and emigration of trunk neural crest cells in embryos of a cartilaginous fish, the little skate (Leucoraja erinacea)...

Homeobox protein MSX-1 (hereafter referred to as MSX-1) is essential for early tooth-germ development. Tooth-germ development is arrested at bud stage in Msx1 knockout mice, which prompted us to study the functions of MSX-1 beyond this stage. Here, we investigated the roles of MSX-1 during late bell stage. Mesenchymal cells of the mandibular first molar were isolated from mice at embryonic day (E)17.5 and cultured in vitro. We determined the expression levels of β-catenin, bone morphogenetic protein 2 (Bmp2), Bmp4, and lymphoid enhancer-binding factor 1 (Lef1) after knockdown or overexpression of Msx1...

The role of dental pulp cells (DPCs) in hard dental tissue regeneration had received increasing attention because DPCs can differentiate into odontoblasts and other tissue‑specific cells. In recent years, epigenetic modifications had been identified to serve an important role in cell differentiation, and histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors have been widely studied by many researchers. However, the effects of HDAC4 and HDAC5 on the differentiation of DPCs and the precise molecular mechanisms remain unclear...
