The immunolocalization of decorin was studied by confocal laser scanning microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. In the apical area of developing teeth, labelling for decorin was found in the dental papilla cells, preodontoblasts and also in the Hertwig's epithelial cells. Mantle dentine...
The increasing number of experiments using laser Doppler flowmetry in man for pulpal blood-flow recordings leads to questionning of the experimental recording conditions. The present study focused on three points: the design of the laser probe holder, the isolation of the tooth, and the influence...
Connective tissue cells synthesize and secrete matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), a family of matrix-degrading enzymes (comprising collagenases, gelatinases and stromelysins), which are capable of degrading all the constituent molecules of connective tissues at physiological pH. This investigation...
