AhR, ARNT, and CYP1A1 mRNA quantitation in cultured human embryonic palates exposed to TCDD and comparison with mouse palate in vivo and in culture. (1/607)

2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) is developmentally toxic in many species and induces cleft palate in the C57BL/6N mouse embryo. Palatogenesis in mouse and human embryos involves homologous processes at the morphological, cellular, and molecular levels. In organ culture, mouse and human palates respond similarly to TCDD. The present study quantitates the expression of AhR, ARNT, and CYP1A1 mRNA in human embryonic palates in organ culture. Palatal tissues were exposed to 1 x 10(-10), 1 x 10(-9), or 1 x 10(-8) M TCDD or control medium and sampled at 0, 2, 4, and 6 hours for quantitative RT-PCR using a synthetic RNA internal standard. Similar measurements of CYP1A1 gene expression were collected for mouse palates cultured in this model. In human palates, AhR expression correlated with ARNT and CYP1A1 mRNA expression. TCDD induction of CYP1A1 was time- and concentration-dependent. The expression of these genes presented a uniform and continuous distribution across the group of embryos, with no subset of either high or low expressors/responders. The ratio of AhR to ARNT was approximately 4:1. AhR mRNA increased during the culture period in both treated and control subjects; however, ARNT expression was relatively constant. TCDD did not alter either AhR or ARNT expression in a consistent dose- or time-related manner. Comparison of human and mouse data showed a high correlation across species for the induction of CYP1A1. Human embryos expressed approximately 350 times less AhR mRNA than the mouse, and in earlier studies it was shown that human palates required 200 times more TCDD to produce the same effects. When the morphological, cellular, and molecular responses to TCDD between mouse and human are compared, it seems highly unlikely that human embryos could be exposed to sufficient TCDD to achieve changes in palatal differentiation that would lead to cleft palate.  (+info)

RT-PCR quantification of AHR, ARNT, GR, and CYP1A1 mRNA in craniofacial tissues of embryonic mice exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin and hydrocortisone. (2/607)

C57BL/6N mouse embryos exposed to hydrocortisone (HC) or 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) develop cleft palate. An interaction between these agents produces clefts at doses which alone are not teratogenic. The glucocorticoid receptor (GR) and dioxin receptor (AhR) mediated these responses and their gene expression was altered by TCDD and/or HC in palates examined on gestation day (GD) 14 by Northern blot analysis and in situ hybridization. The present study quantifies AhR, AhR nuclear translocator (ARNT), and GR mRNA at 4, 12, 24, and 48 h after exposure (time 0 = dose administration at 8 A.M. on gestation day 12) on GD12 to TCDD (24 micrograms/kg), HC (100 mg/kg) or HC (25 mg/kg) + TCDD (3 micrograms/kg). The induction of CYP1A1 mRNA was also quantified at 2, 4, 6, 12, 24, and 48 h for control and TCDD-exposed samples. Total RNA was prepared from midfacial tissue of 4-6 embryos/litter at each time and dose. An RNA internal standard (IS) for each gene was synthesized, which included the gene's primer sequences separated by a pUC19 plasmid sequence. Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was performed on total RNA + IS using a range of 5-7 IS concentrations across a constant level of total RNA. PCR products were separated in gels (mRNA and IS-amplified sequences differed by 30-50 bases), ethidium bromide-stained, imaged (Hamamatsu Photonics Systems, Bridgewater, NJ), and quantified with NIH Image. CYP1A1 mRNA was significantly induced in the TCDD-exposed samples at all time points examined (p = 0.005 at 2 h and 0.001 after 2 h). During palatal shelf outgrowth on GD12, AhR mRNA levels increased significantly and this was not affected by treatment with TCDD or HC + TCDD. A significant increase in GR was detected at 24 h (p < 0.05) and this was unaffected by any of the exposures. Expression of ARNT increased at 12 h (p < 0.001); however, treatment with HC or HC + TCDD blocked this increase (p < 0.05). At 24 h, the TCDD-treated embryos had significantly lower ARNT mRNA compared with controls (p < 0.001). The relative overall expression level of the genes was AhR > ARNT > GR. Within individuals, expression of AhR and/or ARNT was highly correlated with GR level. In conclusion, CYP1A1 mRNA was expressed in developing craniofacial tissue and was highly induced by TCDD exposure. AhR, ARNT, and GR mRNA are upregulated in early palatogenesis, although not on the same schedule. The TCDD-induced decrease in ARNT at 24 h after dosing and the HC and HC + TCDD-induced delay in upregulation of ARNT may affect the dynamics of heterodimer formation between AhR and ARNT. The changes in ARNT mRNA level could also affect availability of this transcriptional regulator to interact with other potential partners, and these effects, separately or in combination, may be involved in disruption of normal embryonic development.  (+info)

Neck soft tissue and fat distribution: comparison between normal men and women by magnetic resonance imaging. (3/607)

BACKGROUND: Obesity and increased neck circumference are risk factors for the obstructive sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome (SAHS). SAHS is more common in men than in women, despite the fact that women have higher rates of obesity and greater overall body fat. One factor in this apparently paradoxical sex distribution may be the differing patterns of fat deposition adjacent to the upper airway in men and women. A study was therefore undertaken to compare neck fat deposition in normal men and women. METHODS: Using T1 weighted magnetic resonance imaging, the fat and tissue volumes in the necks of 10 non-obese men and 10 women matched for age (men mean (SE) 36 (3) years, women 37 (3) years, p = 0.7), body mass index (both 25 (0. 6) kg/m2, p>0.9), and Epworth Sleepiness Score (both 5 (1), p = 0.9) were assessed; all denied symptoms of SAHS. RESULTS: Total neck soft tissue volume was greater in men (1295 (62) vs 928 (45) cm3, p<0. 001), but the volume of fat did not differ between the sexes (291 (29) vs 273 (18) cm3, p = 0.6). The only regions impinging on the pharynx which showed a larger absolute volume of fat in men (3.2 (0. 7) vs 1.1 (0.3) cm3, p = 0.01) and also a greater proportion of neck fat in men (1.3 (0.3)% vs 0.4 (0.1)%, p = 0.03) were the anterior segments inside the mandible at the palatal level. CONCLUSIONS: There are differences in neck fat deposition between the sexes which, together with the greater overall soft tissue loading on the airway in men, may be factors in the sex distribution of SAHS.  (+info)

The maintenance of rat palatal mucosa in organ culture. (4/607)

Palatal mucosa from neonatal rats was maintained under organ culture conditions in a chemically defined medium for periods up to 28 days. The histological state of the cultured palatal mucosa was compared with that of control tissue from growing animals of comparable age. The control tissues showed an increase in epithelial thickness, first noticeable at 17 days. Whilst the general structure of the tissues in organ culture was preserved for the duration of the experiment, some changes in epithelial behavior were evident. There was an increase in epithelial thickness up to 6 days, followed by a reduction in the nucleated cell layer of the epithelium to a thickness comparable with that at the start of the experiment. There was a loss of epithelial glycogen within the first day, with occasional reappearance of patchy and irregular deposits. Whereas the control of epithelial thickness appeared to be restored after 10 days in vitro, disturbances in the maturation of the keratinocytes, manifested as epithelial pearls and dyskeratotic cells, were evident at subsequent stages. Epiboly never occurred. The connective tissue component showed continued development, indicated by an increase in the thickness of collagen fibres. The overall palatal growth seen in vivo did not occur in organ culture. We suggest that the improved maintenance reported is partly the result of explanting tissues in such a way as to minimize trauma, and partly the result of incorporating serum albumin into the chemically defined medium.  (+info)

Cognitive function and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. (5/607)

Among patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), impairment of cognitive function, i.e. deficits in memory, attention, and visuconstructive abilities are common. We applied different forms of treatment for patients with newly diagnosed OSAS in a randomized study with a one-year follow-up. Patients with BMI > 40 kg/m2 were excluded. After the initial diagnostic work-up, male patients were considered to be candidates for either nasal continuous airway pressure (nCPAP) (27 patients) or surgical treatment (uvulopalatopharyngoplasty with or without mandibular osteotomy) (23 patients). Within the groups, the patients were then randomized to active treatment (nCPAP/surgery) or to conservative management. Cognitive function and severity of OSAS were assessed prior to treatment and 3 and 12 months later. At 12 months, all patients on nCPAP had a normal ODI4 index (< 10), and were significantly less somnolent than their controls; 3/11 of the surgically treated patients had a normal ODI4 index. Daytime somnolence was significantly less severe in the surgically treated patients than in their controls. Cognitive function did not correlate importantly with daytime sleepiness or severity of OSAS; the best Pearson pairwise correlation coefficient was between ODI4 and the Bourdon-Wiersma (r = 0.36). Success in treatment of OSAS did not affect neuropsychological outcome. We concluded that the standard cognitive test battery is insufficiently sensitive to identify positive changes in patients with OSAS, especially among those with a high level of overall mental functioning.  (+info)

Ectopic eruption of the maxillary canine quantified in three dimensions on cephalometric radiographs between the ages of 5 and 15 years. (6/607)

The eruption paths of 20 ectopic maxillary canine teeth (10 right, 10 left) were measured in three dimensions on annual lateral and depressed postero-anterior cephalometric radiographs of 15 patients between the ages of 5 and 15 years and compared with the eruption of normal canines. It was found that between the ages of 8 and 12 years ectopic canines on the left side moved more anteriorly than the normally erupting canines and the same was true of the right canines between the ages of 7 and 12 years. While the ectopic canines moved occlusally, their vertical movement was less than normal which accounts for the clinical finding that canines are impacted in the palate at a high level. The average palatally ectopic canine always moves palatally, and never shares in the buccal movement shown by normally erupting canines between the ages of 10 and 12 years. It was interesting to find that the differences between growth of normal and ectopic canines in the lateral plane of space are present as early as 5-6 years.  (+info)

Palatal bone support for orthodontic implant anchorage--a clinical and radiological study. (7/607)

When maximal anchorage is required during orthodontic treatment, additional aids are often needed to support the anchoring teeth. While intra-oral aids may be limited in their anchorage potential, extra-oral anchoring aids are often rejected by the patients. Endosseous implants may therefore be a valuable alternative for stable intra-oral anchorage. However, the possibility of using conventional implants is insufficient, e.g. for treating purely orthodontic patients with full dentition or where extraction sites are to be closed. Therefore, the mid-sagittal area of the palate is an alternative insertion site for the placement of implants for orthodontic anchorage. The limited bone height in this area inspired this comparison between bone thickness in the implantation site as verified by probing during the implantation of Straumann Ortho-system implants, and thickness as measured on the lateral cephalogram. The results suggest that vertical bone support is at least 2 mm higher than apparent on the cephalogram. In none of 12 patients was a perforation to the nasal cavity found. However, in five subjects the implant projected into the nasal cavity on the post-operative cephalogram. These results were supported by the study of the projections of palate and wires in wire-marked skulls where the wires were placed bilaterally on the nasal floor and on the nasal crest. It is therefore concluded that the mid-sagittal area of the palate lends sufficient bony support for the implantation of small implants (4-6 mm endosseous length, diameter 3.3 mm).  (+info)

The robust australopithecine face: a morphogenetic perspective. (8/607)

The robust australopithecines were a side branch of human evolution. They share a number of unique craniodental features that suggest their monophyletic origin. However, virtually all of these traits appear to reflect a singular pattern of nasomaxillary modeling derived from their unusual dental proportions. Therefore, recent cladistic analyses have not resolved the phylogenetic history of these early hominids. Efforts to increase cladistic resolution by defining traits at greater levels of anatomical detail have instead introduced substantial phyletic error.  (+info)

present in mammals and some reptiles. A similar structure is found in crocodilians, but, in most other tetrapods, the oral and nasal cavities are not truly separate. The secondary palate is formed by bilateral medial extensions of maxillary processes. The extensions (palatine processes) meet at the midline, merging dorsally with nasal septum and rostrally with primary palate. The secondary palate (hard palate) separates nasal and oral cavities. Caudal extension of the secondary palate into the pharynx, forms a soft palate which divides the rostral pharynx into dorsal (nasopharynx) and ventral (oropharynx) chamber ...
Classical research has suggested that early palate formation develops via epithelial-mesenchymal interactions, and in this study we reveal which signals control this process. Using Fgf10-/-, FGF receptor 2b-/- (Fgfr2b-/-), and Sonic hedgehog (Shh) mutant mice, which all exhibit cleft palate, we show that Shh is a downstream target of Fgf10/Fgfr2b signaling. Our results demonstrate that mesenchymal Fgf10 regulates the epithelial expression of Shh, which in turn signals back to the mesenchyme. This was confirmed by demonstrating that cell proliferation is decreased not only in the palatal epithelium but also in the mesenchyme of Fgfr2b-/- mice. These results reveal a new role for Fgf signaling in mammalian palate development. We show that coordinated epithelial-mesenchymal interactions are essential during the initial stages of palate development and require an Fgf-Shh signaling network.. ...

Albuterol sulfate has been shown to be teratogenic in mice. A study in CD-1 mice at subcutaneous (sc) doses at and above 0.25 mg/kg (approximately equal to the maximum recommended daily inhalation dose for adults on a mg/m2 basis), induced cleft palate formation in 5 of 111 (4.5%) fetuses. At an sc dose of 2.5 mg/kg (approximately 8 times the maximum recommended daily inhalation dose for adults on a mg/m2 basis) albuterol sulfate induced cleft palate formation in 10 of 108 (9.3%) fetuses. The drug did not induce cleft palate formation when administered at an sc dose of 0.025 mg/kg (significantly less than the maximum recommended daily inhalation dose for adults on a mg/m2 basis). Cleft palate also occurred in 22 of 72 (30.5%) fetuses from females treated with 2.5 mg/kg isoproterenol (positive control) administered subcutaneously..

Cleft palate is a common congenital abnormality that results from defective secondary palate (SP) formation. The Sine oculis-related homeobox 2 (Six2) gene has been linked to abnormalities of craniofacial and kidney development. Our current study examined, for the first time, the specific role of Six2 in embryonic mouse SP development. Six2 mRNA and protein expression were identified in the palatal shelves from embryonic days (E)12.5 to E15.5, with peak levels during early stages of palatal shelf outgrowth. Immunohistochemical staining (IHC) showed that Six2 protein is abundant throughout the mesenchyme in the oral half of each palatal shelf, whereas there is a pronounced decline in Six2 expression by mesenchyme cells in the nasal half of the palatal shelf by stages E14.5-15.5. An opposite pattern was observed in the surface epithelium of the palatal shelf. Six2 expression was prominent at all stages in the epithelial cell layer located on the nasal side of each palatal shelf but absent from the

Complete closure of the secondary palate must progress through two consecutive events: the converging movement of the palatal shelves and their subsequent fusion at the line of contact. Each step is indispensable in normal palatal development since, theoretically, a palatal cleft might be the consequence of a failure of either.. Until recently, the mechanisms of shelf movement received most attention (Peter, 1924; Lazarro, 1940; Walker & Fraser, 1956; Larsson, 1960). However, recent investigations have focused on the subsequent step, properly referred to as fusion. These studies, based on organ culture methods (Pourtois, 1966) and electron microscopy (Mato, Aikawa & Katahira, 1966; Farbman, 1967; Smiley & Dixon, 1967), have emphasized the complexity of the fusion process. This process may be viewed as a sequence of four interdependent events: (1) differentiation of the cell layers at the edge of the shelves resulting in the formation of a zone of stickiness (Pourtois, 1968); (2) fusion of ...

According to the study of Vitamin A and clefting: putative biological mechanisms by Ackermans MM, Zhou H, Carels CE, Wagener FA, Von den Hoff JW., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, researchers found that excessive vitamin A may disturb all three stages of palatogenesis: 1) during shelf outgrowth, it may decrease cell proliferation and thus prevent tissue development; 2) it may prevent shelf elevation by affecting extracellular matrix composition and hydration; and 3) during shelf fusion, it may affect epithelial differentiation and apoptosis, which precludes the formation of a continuous palate. In general, high doses of vitamin A affect palatogenesis through interference with cell proliferation and growth factors such as transforming growth factor β and platelet-derived growth factor. The effects of lower doses of vitamin A need to be investigated in greater depth in order to improve public health recommendations ...
Tissue elongation is a fundamental component of developing and regenerating systems. Although localised proliferation is an important mechanism for tissue elongation, potentially important contributions of other elongation mechanisms, specifically cell shape change, orientated cell division and cell rearrangement, are rarely considered or quantified, particularly in mammalian systems. Their quantification, together with proliferation, provides a rigorous framework for the analysis of elongation. The mammalian palatal epithelium is a landmark-rich tissue, marked by regularly spaced ridges (rugae), making it an excellent model in which to analyse the contributions of cellular processes to directional tissue growth. We captured confocal stacks of entire fixed mouse palate epithelia throughout the mid-gestation growth period, labelled with membrane, nuclear and cell proliferation markers and segmented all cells (up to ∼20,000 per palate), allowing the quantification of cell shape and ...

Passing tubes through the mouth causes discomfort to child, shown by an increase in movements of the jaw and tongue [28]. In order to stabilize oral ventilation or feeding tubes against displacement from tongue and jaw movements, and thus against accidental extubation, to remedy palatal narrowing or grooving and protect primary teeth from trauma caused by intraoral tubes denture like protective plates are recommended or used by various authors [2, 7, 8, 13, 15, 24, 27-30, 32-35]. Such an oral plate has been recommended for any infant requiring an oral tube for more than 24 hours, since 12 hours was the shortest period for palatal groove formation (no information concerning size, depth or severety of that groove was reported) [27]..

Palatal primordia of day-12.5 mouse fetuses were cultivated in a chemically-defined medium by a suspension culture technique, and their growth and differentiation in vitro were compared with those of the fetal palates in vivo at the corresponding gestational stages. The maxillary explants cultivated in vitro for up to 72 hours did not grow in size and remained almost in the same size as those in day-12.5 fetuses. However, the palatal shelves elevated and grew faster towards the midline until 24 hours in culture as compared with in vivo development. In day-14.5 fetal palates in vivo, the opposing palatal shelves have contacted with each other in about 80% of cases and 73% of the palates have begun to fuse, while the corresponding rates in vitro were 19% and 6%, respectively, suggesting that in vitro palatogenesis is delayed by 48 hours in culture. At 72 hours of culture, the rate of completely closed palates was 89% against the 10% closure rate for day-15.5 fetuses in vivo. Although the ...

title: Modulation of cell proliferation during palatogenesis by the interplay between Tbx3 and Bmp4, doi: 10.1007/s00441-006-0271-8, category: Article
Disruption of signaling pathways such as those mediated by sonic hedgehog (Shh) or platelet-derived growth factor (Pdgf) causes craniofacial abnormalities, including cleft palate. The role that microRNAs play in modulating palatogenesis, however, is completely unknown. We show that, in zebrafish, the microRNA Mirn140 negatively regulates Pdgf signaling during palatal development, and we provide a mechanism for how disruption of Pdgf signaling causes palatal clefting. The pdgf receptor alpha (pdgfra) 3 UTR contained a Mirn140 binding site functioning in the negative regulation of Pdgfra protein levels in vivo. pdgfra mutants and Mirn140-injected embryos shared a range of facial defects, including clefting of the crest-derived cartilages that develop in the roof of the larval mouth. Concomitantly, the oral ectoderm beneath where these cartilages develop lost pitx2 and shha expression. Mirn140 modulated Pdgf-mediated attraction of cranial neural crest cells to the oral ectoderm, where ...
Scar formation after repair of the cleft palate leads to growth impairment of the upper jaw and midface. The implantation of a suitable scaffold during surgery may reduce this adverse effect. However, little is known about tissue reactions to scaffolds implanted in the oral cavity. Our goal was to analyze the tissue reactions to cross-linked type I collagen scaffolds after submucoperiosteal implantation in the palate of rats. Collagen type I scaffolds were implanted in the palate of 25 male Wistar rats. Groups of 5 rats were killed consecutively after 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16 weeks and were processed for histologic and immunohistochemical analyses. After 1 and 2 weeks, 3 rats from the sham group were also killed. On hematoxylin and eosin-stained sections, the cell density and the number of giant cells were determined. Blood vessels, inflammation, and the presence of myofibroblasts were detected by immunohistochemistry. An influx of inflammatory cells started after 1 week but had completely subsided ...

Massachusetts General Hospital Background: Cleft lip and/or palate (CL/P) is the most frequent craniofacial birth defect. Transcription factor IRF6 has been confirmed as a key locus for syndromic and non-syndromic CL/P. In order to understand irf6 function during palate development and its role in cleft malformation, we are generating transgenic irf6 reporter line for use in mechanistic analysis.. Methods: A 7.185 kb zebrafish irf6 promoter sequence was amplified from the irf6 bacterial artificial chromosome. The Tg:irf6:eGFP transgenic animal was generated using Gateway system, with Tol2 transposase mediating germline integration. Progeny of stable transgenic lines were analyzed by compound and confocal microscopy.. Results: Expression of irf6 was detected at single cell stage, confirming the presence of irf6 as a maternal transcript (Figure. 1). Irf6 expression continued throughout gastrulation, then localized in the otic placode and migrating cranial neural crest cells. Later in ...

Food definitely dominates my memories of my study abroad experience. My second evening in South India was absolute foodie heaven: palak paneer, chappati, aloo gobi, dal, sambar, roti, iddli, dosas, and chutney all passed from plate to mouth to the shock of my taste buds. Having arrived the day before, my sense of taste still reeled not only from the cholesterol-laden airplane food, but also from a general disconnect between my palate and brain. I bit into a potato chunk only to register a few seconds later the piece of hot green chili stuck to the side.. It wasnt too long before I found out my spice tolerance was abysmally low. As the semester progressed, gentle teasing about my unsophisticated Indian palate, insignificant appetite (by Indian standards), and unrefined eating technique was not an uncommon activity in my host familys household. Is this too spicy for you? my host amma (mother) would ask every night for a month even when barely a pinch of green chili was added. My paati ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Cranial neural crest deletion of VEGFa causes cleft palate with aberrant vascular and bone development. AU - Hill, Cynthia. AU - Jacobs, Britni. AU - Kennedy, Lucy. AU - Rohde, Sarah. AU - Zhou, Bin. AU - Baldwin, Scott. AU - Goudy, Steven. N1 - Publisher Copyright: © 2015, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.. PY - 2015/9/28. Y1 - 2015/9/28. N2 - Cleft palate is among the most common craniofacial congenital anomalies. Up to 30 % of patients with cleft palate also have associated cardiac and vascular defects. VEGFa, a critical growth factor involved in multiple developmental processes including angiogenesis and ossification, is also required for palate development. Conditional deletion of VEGFa in cranial neural crest (CNC) cells using Wnt1-Cre (VEGFaCKO) resulted in cleft palate in mice. The phenotype included reduced proliferation of cells within the palatal shelves, abnormal palatal shelf elongation and elevation, and the inability to undergo fusion. Vascularization of the ...
As a clinician, I understand the devastating consequences of cleft palate, said Rena DSouza, D.D.S., Ph.D., professor of Dentistry at U of U Health. Cleft palate is one of the most common birth defects, affecting 6 in 2,651 children born in the United States. The cleft forms when the bony tissue covering the roof of the mouth fails to join during pregnancy. Children with a cleft palate require reconstructive surgery and complex life-long treatments. DSouza and her team originally set out to investigate a different tissue: teeth. Using mice as a model, they had planned to clarify the role of two sets of genes - PAX 9 and Wnt genes - in regulating tooth formation. Unexpectedly, their work revealed how the interplay between these two genes at a critical window of development is needed for the palatal shelves to grow and fuse in the midline. It was really serendipitous, she said. For the first time, we can show the involvement of the Wnt pathway during palate fusion. Like people born with a ...
Women who have epilepsy and who take the anticonvulsant diphenylhydantoin (DPH) during pregnancy produce infants that have an abnor-high incidence of cleft palate and other anomalies. DPH will induce cleft palates in laboratory mice exposed to the drug while in utero. It has been suggested that DPH may exert its teratogenic effect by interfering with Vitamin D metabolism. We tested the hypothesis that decreased concentrations of vitamin D could be secondary to treatment with DPH and could be related to the induction of cleft palates in mice. To do this we treated groups of pregnant mice with DPH or the combination of DPH and 25 hydroxycholecalciferol (25 hydroxy Vitamin D3) during the critical period of palatogenesis. Treatment with 25 hydroxycholecalciferol did not decrease the incidence of DPH-induced cleft palate. In fact, fetuses from mice treated with DPH and 25 hydroxycholecalciferol had an increased incidence of cleft palate as compared to fetuses from dams treated only with DPH. ...
AIM The aim of this retrospective investigation was to measure vertical bone thickness on the hard palate, determine areas with adequate bone for the insertion of orthodontic mini-implants (MIs), and provide clinical guidelines for identification of those areas. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pre-treatment records of 1007 patients were reviewed by a single examiner. A total of 125 records fulfilled the inclusion criteria and were further investigated. Bone measurements were performed on cone-beam computed tomography scans, at a 90° angle to the bone surface, on 28 predetermined and standardized points on the hard palate. Bone thickness at various areas was associated to clinically identifiable areas on the hard palate by means of pre-treatment plaster models. RESULTS Bone thickness ranged between 1.51 and 13.86mm (total thickness) and 0.33 and 1.65mm (cortical bone thickness), respectively. Bone thickness was highest in the anterior palate and decreased significantly towards more posterior areas. ...

It has been hypothesized that prematurity and adjunctive neonatal care is a priori a risk for disturbances of palatal and orofacial development which increases the need for later orthodontic or orthognathic treatment. As results on late consequences of prematurity are consistently contradictory, the necessity exists for a fundamental analysis of existing methodologies, confounding factors, and outcomes of studies on palatal development in preterm and low birthweight infants. A search of the literature was conducted based on Cochrane search strategies including sources in English, German, and French. Original data were recalculated from studies which primarily dealt with both preterm and term infants. The extracted data, especially those from non-English paper sources, were provided unfiltered in tables for comparison (Parts 1 and 2). Morphology assessment of the infant palate is subject to non-standardized visual and metrical measurements. Most methodologies are inadequate for measuring a three

Cleft Palate refers to a fissure or an opening formed as a birth defect in the roof of the mouth (termed as the palate) on account of an inability of the palatal shelves to come together fully from both sides of the mouth, as they should appear normally, during the embryonic growth. This opening allows for communication to pass between the mouth and the nasal passages, which needs to be closed down through surgery at several stages. Cleft palate is not as common as cleft lip, another birth defect. Clefts are generally considered to be caused due to both genetic and environmental factors in newborns. Alternatively, the cause could be a wrong medicine consumed by a mother, or having had an exposure to chemicals or viruses, during her pregnancy.. ...
Many children are born with a cleft palate, cleft lip, or both. In the U.S., about 1 out of every 1,500 babies is born with a cleft palate. Your babys palate can be repaired so the mouth looks and works normally.
Treatment involves a team of health care providers. The type of treatment depends on how severe the problem is.. Surgery is the most common treatment for a cleft palate. For the most part, its done before a child is 12 months old.footnote 1 Before surgery, your baby may need treatment for breathing or feeding problems. He or she may also wear a mouth support (such as a dental splint) or a soft dental moulding insert along with medical adhesive tape.. As your child grows, he or she will probably need more than one operation. But the problem is normally fixed by the time a child is a teen. Although surgery often leaves scars, the palate usually heals well and leaves few signs of the cleft. A childs facial bones most often grow normally, and the child speaks more clearly.. Some children who have a cleft palate need more treatment for other problems, such as speech, hearing, or teeth problems; sinus and ear infections; and problems from surgery. ...
The β3 subunit of the γ-aminobutyric acid type A receptor (GABAA-R) has been reported to be important for palate formation, anesthetic action, and normal nervous system function. This subunit has also been implicated in the pathogenesis of Angelman syndrome and autism spectrum disorder. To further investigate involvement of this subunit, we previously produced mice with a global knockout of β3. However, developmental abnormalities, compensation, reduced viability, and numerous behavioral abnormalities limited the usefulness of that murine model. To overcome many of these limitations, a mouse line with a conditionally inactivated β3 gene was engineered. Gene targeting and embryonic stem cell technologies were used to create mice in which exon 3 of the β3 subunit was flanked by loxP sites (i.e., floxed). Crossing the floxed β3 mice to a cre general deleter mouse line reproduced the phenotype of the previously described global knockout. Pan-neuronal knockout of β3 was achieved by crossing floxed β3
Transforming growth factor beta-3 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TGFB3 gene.[5][6] It is a type of protein, known as a cytokine, which is involved in cell differentiation, embryogenesis and development. It belongs to a large family of cytokines called the Transforming growth factor beta superfamily, which includes the TGF-β family, Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), growth and differentiation factors (GDFs), inhibins and activins.[7] TGF-β3 is believed to regulate molecules involved in cellular adhesion and extracellular matrix (ECM) formation during the process of palate development. Without TGF-β3, mammals develop a deformity known as a cleft palate.[8][9] This is caused by failure of epithelial cells in both sides of the developing palate to fuse. TGF-β3 also plays an essential role in controlling the development of lungs in mammals, by also regulating cell adhesion and ECM formation in this tissue,[10] and controls wound healing by regulating the movements of epidermal ...

Nicotinic stomatitis is not considered a pre cancerous condition, however there are exceptions to every rule. The image above shows nicotinic stomatitis in an elderly man who has been smoking a pipe for many years. He does not have teeth, nor does he have a denture to protect his palate. The thick, white keratinization on the edentulous (toothless) ridges are probably at least partly due to years of chewing on bare gums, made worse by the pipe smoke which was probably habitually aimed more at this area of the mouth than others. The irregular red and white lesion proved to be squamous cell carcinoma. While nicotinic stomatitis is not considered to be pre cancerous, leukoplakia definitely is! (See the images below.) Both leukoplakia and nicotinic stomatitis are composed of keratinized tissue, and the difference in carcinogenicity may, in fact, be due mostly to the differences in the resistances of the tissues on which they are found. Perhaps very long exposure of the palatal tissues to hot, ...

Surgical grafting techniques have evolved over the past 50 years to a minimally invasive method with refinements in recipient site preparation and the use of allograft donor tissue rather than harvesting tissue from the palate. A distinct advantage when allografts are used is that multiple teeth can be treated in one visit without concern for the amount of palatal tissue available. Regarding recipient site preparation, there has been a progression from open-site preparations to flaps with vertical incisions, to envelope flaps without vertical inci-sions, to tunnels with only sulcular ...
Sleep apnea, like snoring, is often caused by lax muscles in the upper throat. During snoring, the airways are blocked due to the collapse of the soft palate and the muscles lining the throat wall. When airways become narrow and throat muscles are loose there is increased suction, and the result is noisy vibrations. Singing for snorers is a proven apnea alternative treatment that exercises the muscle groups which support the soft palate. The soft palate vibrates when you snore, causing blockage of the airways leading to conditions of apnea.. If you constantly exercise the muscles that hold up the soft palate, the muscles become much stronger and tighter. When your throat muscles are stronger and tighter it requires an extremely powerful breath to cause the soft palate to vibrate and cause snoring.. The singing for snorers program lets you work out muscles around the throat where snoring vibrations usually occur. This strengthens the linings of the airways, thus reducing blockage and ...

It is a muscle of facial expression which draws the angle of the mouth superiorly and posteriorly to allow one to smile.[1] Like all muscles of facial expression, the zygomatic major is innervated by the facial nerve (the seventh cranial nerve), more specifically, the buccal and zygomatic branches of the facial nerve. ...
The masseter muscle can become enlarged in patients who habitually clench or grind (with bruxism) their teeth and even in those who constantly chew gum. This masseteric hypertrophy is asymptomatic and soft; it is usually bilateral but can be unilateral. Even if the hypertrophy is bilateral, asymmetry of the face may still occur due to unequal enlargement of the muscles. This extraoral enlargement may be confused with parotid salivary gland disease, dental infections, and maxillofacial neoplasms. However, no other signs are present except those involved in changes in occlusion intraorally such as pain, and the enlargement corresponds with the outline of the muscle. Most patients seek medical attention because of comments about facial appearance, and this situation may be associated with further pathology of the temporomandibular joint.[6] Finally, the muscle undergoes spasm with malignant hyperthermia as do other skeletal muscles, but this one is easily noted, since it is on the face. ...
An inability to form facial expressions on one side of the face may be the first sign of damage to the nerve of these muscles. Damage to the facial nerve results in facial paralysis of the muscles of facial expression on the involved side. Paralysis is the loss of voluntary muscle action; the facial nerve has become damaged permanently or temporarily. This damage can occur with a stroke, Bell palsy, or parotid salivary gland cancer (malignant neoplasm) because the facial nerve travels through the gland. The parotid gland can also be damaged permanently by surgery or temporarily by trauma. These situations of paralysis not only inhibit facial expression but also seriously impair the patient's ability to speak, either permanently or temporarily.[1] ...
