Growth factors regulate expression of mineral associated genes in cementoblasts. (1/95)

BACKGROUND: Knowledge of the responsiveness of cells within the periodontal region to specific bioactive agents is important for improving regenerative therapies. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of specific growth factors, insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), platelet-derived growth factor-BB (PDGF-BB), and transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) on cementoblasts in vitro and ex vivo. METHODS: Osteocalcin (OC) promoter driven SV40 transgenic mice were used to obtain immortalized cementoblasts. Growth factor effects on DNA synthesis were assayed by [3H]-thymidine incorporation. Northern analysis was used to determine the effects of growth factors on gene expression profile. Effects of growth factors on cementoblast induced biomineralization were determined in vitro (von Kossa stain) and ex vivo (re-implantation of cells in immunodeficient (SCID) mice). RESULTS: All growth factors stimulated DNA synthesis compared to control. Twenty-four hour exposure of cells to PDGF-BB or TGF-beta resulted in a decrease in bone sialoprotein (BSP) and osteocalcin (OCN) mRNAs while PDGF-BB also increased osteopontin (OPN) mRNA. Cells exposed to IGF-I for 24 hours exhibited decreased transcripts for OCN and OPN with an upregulation of BSP mRNA noted at 72 hours. In vitro mineralization was inhibited by continuous application of PDGF-BB or TGF-beta, while cells exposed to these factors prior to implantation into SCID mice still promoted biomineralization. CONCLUSIONS: These data indicate IGF-I, PDGF-BB, and TGF-beta influence mitogenesis, phenotypic gene expression profile, and biomineralization potential of cementoblasts suggesting that such factors alone or in combination with other agents may provide trigger factors required for regenerating periodontal tissues.  (+info)

Application of high resolution microfocus X-ray CT for the observation of human tooth. (2/95)

The calcification degree of extracted human teeth was observed by using high resolution microfocus X-ray CT. As samples, upper and lower first premolars extracted from a 21-year-old female were used. The computed tomograms were produced by high resolution microfocus X-ray CT with a open vacuum X-ray source, rotating sample stage, and image sensor. The distinction between enamel and dentin was very clear, and the shape of the pulp cavity was also clearly identified. The secondary dentin was visible in the circumpulpal dentin. The color map displays showed the heterogeneity of the calcification degree not only in the dentin but also in the enamel. The enamel was divided into three layers according to the calcification degree. High resolution microfocus X-ray CT was very useful for the observation of the internal structure of human teeth without destroying the samples.  (+info)

On the relationship between tetracycline and the incremental lines in dentine. (3/95)

Ground and decalcified sections of human, goat and pig teeth were examined using polarized and ultraviolet fluorescence microscopy, microradiography and electron microscopy. The experimental animals were given doses of tetracycline within the range 3-150 mg/kg. After the low doses there was no evidence of any disturbance of mineralization or of structural organization in either the goat or the pig. After the higher doses, however, the tetracycline lines usually corresponded with a disturbance of structural organization and often with a disturbance of mineralization as well. In the human cases, the tetracycline lines sometimes corresponded with a disturbance of mineralization or of structural organization. However, our evidence suggests that the disturbances in the structure or mineralization of the dentine in the human subjects were not caused by the tetracycline. It was concluded that, provided the dose is kept low (3-31 mg/kg) tetracycline can be used as a reliable non-toxic marker in growth studies and is also used in the study of mineral deposition.  (+info)

On the configuration of incremental lines in human dentine as revealed by tetracycline labelling. (4/95)

The pattern of tetracycline labelling in dentine was investigated in ground sections of human teeth under visible and ultraviolet light. The tetracycline lines presented different appearances near the enamel-junction region, near the dentine-cementum junction, in the mantle dentine, and in the circumpulpal dentine, depending on whether the mineralization front was linear, globular or linear-globular.  (+info)

Proteoglycans in dentinogenesis. (5/95)

The predominant proteoglycans present in predentin and dentin are the chondroitin-sulphate-rich decorin and biglycan and the keratan-sulphate-rich lumican and fibromodulin. These are small, interstitial, leucine-rich proteoglycans which have recently been shown to exist in gradients across the predentin. Antibodies recognizing chondroitin sulphate show a decreasing gradient from the pulpal aspect toward the mineralizing front, the converse being true for keratan sulphate. Antidecorin shows an increase toward the mineralization front. Evidence from biochemical, autoradiographic, and immunohistochemical studies implies that such changes may be brought about by gradients of metalloproteinases. This offers the possibility that the proteoglycans organize the collagen network for receipt of phosphoproteins and phospholipids, the former being evident only at the onset of dentin formation. The suggestion is raised that glycosaminoglycan-depleted leucine-rich protein cores act as sequester points for receipt of phosphoproteins in particular. The rigid, spatially oriented glycosaminoglycan chains on decorin and biglycan are known to bind calcium and may feature directly in mineral initiation.  (+info)

Phospholipids in amelogenesis and dentinogenesis. (6/95)

Phospholipids have been identified in enamel and dentin. Before demineralization, a group of phospholipids extracted by lipid solvents was associated with cell membranes and is therefore closely related to cell growth and intracellular regulations. After demineralization, a second group of phospholipids, associated with the extracellular matrix, was extracted; this group is probably linked to the mineralized phase. Using imidazole-osmium tetroxide fixation of rat incisors, we stained cellular unsaturated fatty acids, so that we could visualize the membrane domains, coated pits, and endocytic inclusions. Filipin, a probe for cholesterol, varied in density along the plasma membrane of secretory ameloblasts, and allowed us to visualize membrane remnants inside the forming enamel. With respect to phospholipids located in the extracellular matrix, the malachite-green-glutaraldehyde (MGA) method or iodoplatinate (IP) reaction retains and visualizes enamel and dentin phospholipids. In predentin, aggregates appearing as granules and filaments, or liposome-like structures, were located in the spaces between collagen fibrils. In dentin, organic envelopes coating the crystals, also named "crystal-ghost" structures, outlined groups of collagen fibrils. Histochemical data provided evidence that phospholipids are co-distributed or interact with proteoglycans. Radioautography after IP reaction established that [3H] choline was detected in dentin as early as 30 min after the intravenous injection of the labeled precursor, before any labeling was seen in odontoblasts and predentin. This suggests that blood-serum-labeled phospholipids pass between odontoblasts, cross the distal permeable junctional complex, and diffuse in dentin prior to any cellular uptake and phospholipid synthesis. Pharmacologically and genetically induced pathology also supports the suggestion that phospholipids play an important role in the formation and mineralization of dental tissues.  (+info)

Dental fluorosis: chemistry and biology. (7/95)

This review aims at discussing the pathogenesis of enamel fluorosis in relation to a putative linkage among ameloblastic activities, secreted enamel matrix proteins and multiple proteases, growing enamel crystals, and fluid composition, including calcium and fluoride ions. Fluoride is the most important caries-preventive agent in dentistry. In the last two decades, increasing fluoride exposure in various forms and vehicles is most likely the explanation for an increase in the prevalence of mild-to-moderate forms of dental fluorosis in many communities, not the least in those in which controlled water fluoridation has been established. The effects of fluoride on enamel formation causing dental fluorosis in man are cumulative, rather than requiring a specific threshold dose, depending on the total fluoride intake from all sources and the duration of fluoride exposure. Enamel mineralization is highly sensitive to free fluoride ions, which uniquely promote the hydrolysis of acidic precursors such as octacalcium phosphate and precipitation of fluoridated apatite crystals. Once fluoride is incorporated into enamel crystals, the ion likely affects the subsequent mineralization process by reducing the solubility of the mineral and thereby modulating the ionic composition in the fluid surrounding the mineral. In the light of evidence obtained in human and animal studies, it is now most likely that enamel hypomineralization in fluorotic teeth is due predominantly to the aberrant effects of excess fluoride on the rates at which matrix proteins break down and/or the rates at which the by-products from this degradation are withdrawn from the maturing enamel. Any interference with enamel matrix removal could yield retarding effects on the accompanying crystal growth through the maturation stages, resulting in different magnitudes of enamel porosity at the time of tooth eruption. Currently, there is no direct proof that fluoride at micromolar levels affects proliferation and differentiation of enamel organ cells. Fluoride does not seem to affect the production and secretion of enamel matrix proteins and proteases within the dose range causing dental fluorosis in man. Most likely, the fluoride uptake interferes, indirectly, with the protease activities by decreasing free Ca(2+) concentration in the mineralizing milieu. The Ca(2+)-mediated regulation of protease activities is consistent with the in situ observations that (a) enzymatic cleavages of the amelogenins take place only at slow rates through the secretory phase with the limited calcium transport and that, (b) under normal amelogenesis, the amelogenin degradation appears to be accelerated during the transitional and early maturation stages with the increased calcium transport. Since the predominant cariostatic effect of fluoride is not due to its uptake by the enamel during tooth development, it is possible to obtain extensive caries reduction without a concomitant risk of dental fluorosis. Further efforts and research are needed to settle the currently uncertain issues, e.g., the incidence, prevalence, and causes of dental or skeletal fluorosis in relation to all sources of fluoride and the appropriate dose levels and timing of fluoride exposure for prevention and control of dental fluorosis and caries.  (+info)

Ca-binding domains in the odontoblast layer of rat molars and incisors under normal and pathological conditions. (8/95)

We recently reported the presence of high concentrations of a Ca-binding matrix in the circumpulpal dentin of rat incisors which had been prevented from mineralization by a systemic administration of 1-hydroxyethylidene-1,1-bisphosphonate (HEBP), a type of bisphosphonates, thus suggesting the role of the putative Ca-binding matrix in the appositional mineralization of circumpulpal dentin (TAKANO et al., 1998, 2000; OHMA et al., 2000). In this study, we examined the distribution of Ca-binding domains in the pulp tissue of normal rat teeth and its changes under the influence of HEBP, in order to identify and clarify the role of the Ca-binding matrix in the physiological process of dentin mineralization. Observation of the normal rat tooth pulp showed occasional, tiny extracellular deposits of Ca-enriched material in the odontoblast layer, associated primarily with pericapillary regions. Such deposits were immunopositive for dentin sialoprotein (DSP), displayed high levels of X-ray peaks for calcium and phosphorus, and showed a drastic increase in amount by daily injections of HEBP. A brief vascular perfusion of high Ca-containing solution in normal animals caused the extensive deposition of Ca-P complexes along the basolateral membranes of odontoblasts but not in the other regions of the pulp tissue. These data suggest the existence of DSP-enriched extracellular Ca-binding domains in the odontoblast layer and also indicate a novel Ca-binding property of the basolateral membranes of odontoblasts. Since DSP is primarily synthesized as dentin sialophosphoprotein (DSPP) and later cleaved into dentin phosphophoryn (DPP) and DSP in odontoblasts, and since DSP has no notable affinity for Ca, the sites of DSP-immunopositive Ca-P deposits in the odontoblast layer may also contain DPP, a highly phosphorylated acidic protein having a strong binding property for calcium. Characteristic Ca-binding properties seen in the odontoblast layer appear to be related to the regulation of the appositional mineralization of circumpulpal dentin.  (+info)

Modified glass ionomer and orthodontic band: An interim alternative for the treatment of molar incisor hypomineralization. A case report.
Enamel is the hardest tissue with the highest degree of mineralization protecting the dental pulp from injury in vertebrates. The ameloblasts differentiated from ectoderm-derived epithelial cells are a single cell layer and are important for the enamel formation and mineralization. Wnt/β-catenin signaling has been proven to exert an important role in the mineralization of bone, dentin and cementum. Little was known about the regulatory mechanism of Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway in ameloblasts during amelogenesis, especially in the mineralization of enamel. To investigate the role of β-catenin in ameloblasts, we established Amelx-Cre; β-catenin∆ex3fl/fl (CA-β-catenin) mice, which could constitutive activate β-catenin in ameloblasts. It showed the delayed mineralization and eventual hypomineralization in the incisor enamel of CA-β-catenin mice. Meanwhile, the amelogenesis-related proteinases Mmp20 and Klk4 were decreased in the incisors of CA-β-catenin mice. These data indicated that ...

Osteomalacia is the softening of the bones caused by impaired bone metabolism primarily due to inadequate levels of available phosphate, calcium, and vitamin D, or because of resorption of calcium. The impairment of bone metabolism causes inadequate bone mineralization. Osteomalacia in children is known as rickets, and because of this, use of the term osteomalacia is often restricted to the milder, adult form of the disease. Signs and symptoms can include diffuse body pains, muscle weakness, and fragility of the bones. In addition to low systemic levels of circulating mineral ions necessary for bone and tooth mineralization, accumulation of mineralization-inhibiting proteins and peptides (such as osteopontin and ASARM peptides) occurs in the extracellular matrix of bones and teeth, likely contributing locally to cause matrix hypomineralization (osteomalacia).[1][2][3][4][5] The most common cause of osteomalacia is a deficiency of vitamin D, which is normally derived from sunlight exposure and, ...
Objectives: The aim of this research was to determine the prevalence, distribution, and associations of molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH) with perinatal complications (PC), childhood illness (CI), and prolonged antibiotic consumption (PAC) among children attending the Polyclinic, Kulliyyah of Dentistry, IIUM, from February 2013 until December 2013. Materials and methods: A matched-pair case control study on children of 7 to 14 years of age was conducted. MIH was determined based on criteria from EAPD seminar, Athens 2003 (Weerheijm et al., 2003). Inter-examiner reliability was tested with Kappa statistic (0.80). This research was approved by the IIUM Research Ethic Committee (IREC). Results: Out of 201 patients, 25 were detected having MIH. The prevalence of MIH was 12.4% within the 11 month period. Among those 25 patients, 52.0% were boys and 48.0% were girls. Locations of MIH were found in maxilla (57%) and mandible (43%). There was no statistically significant association between MIH and ...
Figure 3: Lingual shelf (MW) and dentin (DA2/DA1) layers in place. The patient had two types of subtle white calcifications occurring on their natural enamel, which needed to be replicated in composite for ultimate esthetic blending of the final restoration. One type is a very soft and diffuse white splotchiness along the line angles and is best created using a bleach-white composite, which can be more easily feathered for the diffuse appearance. In this case, the BL1 composite works well, as it is a highly opaque white but can be feathered nicely. The BL1 composite was initially placed with a composite instrument, and excess composite was removed until a reasonable amount remained (Fig 4). Feathering and diffusing of the BL1 composite were then achieved using the OptraSculpt instrument (Ivoclar Vivadent), which has a small foam pad that makes it easy to wipe away the BL1 composite until the desired effect is achieved. ...

Hypophosphatasia (also called deficiency of alkaline phosphatase or phosphoethanolaminuria) is a rare, and sometimes fatal, metabolic bone disease. Clinical symptoms are heterogeneous, ranging from the rapidly fatal, perinatal variant, with profound skeletal hypomineralization and respiratory compromise, to a milder, progressive osteomalacia later in life. Tissue non-specific alkaline phosphatase (TNSALP) deficiency in osteoblasts and chondrocytes impairs bone mineralization, leading to rickets or osteomalacia. The pathognomonic finding is subnormal serum activity of the TNSALP enzyme, which is caused by one of 200 genetic mutations identified to date, in the gene encoding TNSALP. Genetic inheritance is autosomal recessive for the perinatal and infantile forms but either autosomal recessive or autosomal dominant in the milder forms. The prevalence of hypophosphatasia is not known; one study estimated the live birth incidence of severe forms to be 1:100,000. There is a remarkable variety of ...

Insulin-dependent type-1 diabetes mellitus (DM) and oral diseases are closely interrelated. Poor metabolic control in diabetics is associated with a high risk of gingivitis, periodontitis and tooth loss. Salivary flow declines in diabetics and patients suffer from xerostomia. Reduced saliva predisposes to enamel hypomineralization and caries formation; however, the mechanisms that initiate and lead to progression of tooth decay and periodontitis in type-1 DM have not been explored. To address this issue, we analyzed tooth morphology in Akita-/- mice that harbor a point mutation in the Ins2 insulin gene which leads to insulin deficiency and hyperglycemia. Objective: To characterize the tooth phenotype in Akita-/- mice and determine whether hyperglycemia and hyposalivation contribute to dental defects. Methods: Mandibles from Akita-/- and wild type littermates were analyzed by microCT, scanning EM and histology; teeth were examined for amelogenin and ameloblastin expression. Mice were injected ...
The pulp periphery: At the outer border of the pulp, odontoblasts and the so-called Hoehls cells form continuous layers. These postmitotic cells have the capacity to undergo terminal differentiation. Odontoblasts are implicated in the synthesis of collagen and noncollagenous extracellular matrix components. Some ECM proteins are phosphorylated (SIBLINGs), whereas others are non-phosphorylated. ECM components are implicated in predentin and dentin formation, followed by dentin mineralization. Due to a fixation artifact, the formation of a cell-free layer results in from fixation and dehydration. A cell-free area underlines odontoblasts and Hoehls cells, which do not appear on sections after adequate fixative perfusion. Fenestrated capillary loops infiltrate the layer formed by odontoblasts and Hoehls cells but do not cross the terminal junctions located between the distal odontoblast cell bodies nor penetrate within the predentin. In contrast, axons infiltrate the odontoblastic layer and ...
Hypophosphatasia is a genetic condition in which the activity of an enzyme called alkaline phosphatase is deficient. This enzyme plays an essential role in mineralization - when minerals such as calcium and phosphorus are deposited in developing bones and teeth. Low activity of this enzyme which characterizes hypophosphatasia also leads to rickets, osteomalacia, or both. The severity of the symptoms of hypophosphatasia varies widely, from fetal loss during pregnancy to cases in which pathologic fractures first present only in adulthood. Hypophosphatasia is caused by a mutation in a gene - called the ALPL gene - that provides instructions for making the alkaline phosphatase enzyme. A cure or proven medical therapy for hypophosphatasia has not yet been found. Treatment is generally directed towards preventing or correcting the symptoms or complications ...

Baby marmosets that were introduced to solid food at a young age are more likely to become obese, and to eat larger quantities of food if given the chance, according to a new study. This early-life obesity resulted in a host of metabolic changes, including insulin resistance, a hallmark of type 2 diabetes. With its small size and early maturation, we think the marmoset is going to be an exceptionally good model of early life obesity and offers many opportunities to further explore why youngsters become obese, said Suzette D. Tardif, associate professor of cellular and structural biology at the University of Texas-San Antonio School of Medicine. Tardifs team had noticed obesity patterns began at a young age in these small monkeys, and wanted to test whether marmosets could become overweight by simply eating more. Tardif found that patterns leading to obesity begin very early in young marmosets, around 30 days of age. A month-old marmoset is equivalent to a 5- to 8-month-old human. The ...

Background. The goal of treating exposed pulp with an appropriate pulp capping material is to promote the dentinogenic potential of the pulpal cells. There have been recent attempts to develop more effective pulp-capping materials. Objectives. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of newly developed calcium silicate-based material on odontogenic differentiation of primary human dental pulp cells (HDPCs), in comparison with a contemporary calcium silicate-based material. Material and methods. Human dental pulp cells isolated from dental pulps were cultured in standard culture conditions in Dulbeccos Modified Eagles Medium (DMEM) and then the effects of Micro-Mega mineral trioxide aggregate (MM-MTA) (Micro-Mega, Besancon, France) and ProRoot MTA (MTA) (Dentsply Sirona, Tulsa, USA) (positive control) were evaluated on HDPCs at 1, 7 and 14 days. Untreated cells were used as a negative control. Odontoblastic differentiation was assessed by alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity. Runtrelated ...
This study aimed to characterize fluoride-induced alterations in dentin mineralization within a dentin-pulp organ culture system. Tooth sections derived from male Wistar rat incisors were cultured in Trowel-type culture for 14 days, in the presence of 0 mM, 1 mM, 3 mM and 6 mM sodium fluoride. Tooth sections were processed and analyzed for uptake of fluoride, its subsequent effect on dentin mineralization by tetracycline hydrochloride incorporation and mineral composition, expressed as calcium/phosphorous (Ca/P) ratios. Tetracycline hydrochloride incorporation was demonstrated to decrease with increased fluoride exposure, accompanied by significant increases in both Ca/P ratios and fluoride incorporation. These findings provide further evidence that the established alterations in dentin formation during fluorosis are a consequence of disruption to the mineralization process, and provide a model system with which to investigate further the potential role the extracellular matrix plays in inducing ...
Damage or exposure of the dental pulp requires immediate therapeutic intervention. This study assessed the biocompatibility of a silver-containing PLGA/TCP-nanofabric scaffold (PLGA/Ag-TCP) in two in vitro models, i.e. the material adapted on pre-cultured cells and cells directly cultured on the material, respectively. Collagen saffolds with and without hyaluronan acid (Coll-HA; Coll) using both cell culturing methods and cells growing on culture plates served as reference. Cell viability and proliferation were assessed after 24, 48, and 72 h based on formazan formation and BrdU incorporation. Scaffolds were harvested. Gene expression of interleukin(IL)-6, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, and alkaline phosphatase (AP) was assessed 24 h after stimulation. In both models formazan formation and BrdU incorporation was reduced by PLGA/Ag-TCP on dental pulp cells, while no significant reduction was found in cells with Coll and Coll-HA. Cells with PLGA/Ag-TCP for 72 h showed similar relative BrdU
The hereditary dentine disorders, dentinogenesis imperfecta (DGI) and dentine dysplasia (DD), comprise a group of autosomal dominant genetic conditions characterised by abnormal dentine structure affecting either the primary or both the primary and secondary dentitions. DGI is reported to have an incidence of 1 in 6,000 to 1 in 8,000, whereas that of DD type 1 is 1 in 100,000. Clinically, the teeth are discoloured and show structural defects such as bulbous crowns and small pulp chambers radiographically. The underlying defect of mineralisation often results in shearing of the overlying enamel leaving exposed weakened dentine which is prone to wear. Currently, three sub-types of DGI and two sub-types of DD are recognised but this categorisation may change when other causative mutations are found. DGI type I is inherited with osteogenesis imperfecta and recent genetic studies have shown that mutations in the genes encoding collagen type 1, COL1A1 and COL1A2, underlie this condition. All other forms of
Enamel demineralization is frequently encountered in dental practice. Histologically, hypomineralization is the common feature and several etiologies stand behind their clinical appearance. Recently, resin infiltration technique was introduced to mask these enamel lesions.

Introduction: Mutations in the gene ALPL in hypophosphatasia (HPP) reduce the function of tissue nonspecific alkaline phosphatase, and the resulting increase in pyrophosphate (PPi) contributes to bone and tooth mineralization defects by inhibiting physiologic calcium-phosphate (P-i) precipitation. Although periodontal phenotypes are well documented, pulp/dentin abnormalities have been suggested in the clinical literature although reports are variable and underlying mechanisms remains unclear. in vitro analyses were used to identify mechanisms involved in HPP-associated pulp/dentin phenotypes. Methods: Primary pulp cells cultured from HPP subjects were established to assay alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity, mineralization, and gene expression compared with cells from healthy controls. Exogenous P-i was provided to the correct P-i/PPi ratio in cell culture. Results: HPP cells exhibited significantly reduced ALP activity (by 50%) and mineral nodule formation (by 60%) compared with the controls. ...

Pathological stimuli, such as bacterial activity, dental bleaching, and nonpolymerized resin monomers, can cause death of dental pulp cells (DPCs) through oxidative stress- (OS-) induced mitochondrial dysfunction. However, the crucial molecular mechanisms that mediate such a phenomenon remain largely unknown. OS is characterized by the overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS), e.g., H|sub|2|/sub|O|sub|2|/sub|, O|sub|2|/sub||sup|−|/sup|, and |sup|⋅|/sup|OH. Mitochondria are a major source of ROS and the principal attack target of ROS. Cyclophilin D (CypD), as the only crucial protein for mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP) induction, facilitates the opening of mPTP and causes mitochondrial dysfunction, leading to cell death. In the present study, we hypothesized that CypD-mediated mitochondrial molecular pathways were closely involved in the process of OS-induced death of human DPCs (HDPCs). We tested the phenotypic and molecular changes of HDPCs in a well-established
Maintaining or regenerating a vital pulp is a preferable goal in current endodontic research. In this study, human dental pulp cell aggregates (spheres) were applied onto bovine and human root canal models to evaluate their potential use as pre-differentiated tissue units for dental pulp tissue regeneration. Human dental pulp cells (DPC) were derived from wisdom teeth, cultivated into three-dimensional cell spheres and seeded onto bovine and into human root canals. Sphere formation, tissue-like and mineralization properties as well as growth behavior of cells on dentin structure were evaluated by light microscopy (LM), confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX). Spheres and outgrown cells showed tissue-like properties, the ability to merge with other cell spheres and extra cellular matrix formation; CLSM investigation revealed a dense network of actin and focal adhesion contacts (FAC) inside the spheres and a pronounced
Serum calcium levels are tightly controlled by an integrated hormone-controlled system that involves active vitamin D [1,25(OH)2D], which can elicit calcium mobilization from bone when intestinal calcium absorption is decreased. The skeletal adaptations, however, are still poorly characterized. To gain insight into these issues, we analyzed the consequences of specific vitamin D receptor (Vdr) inactivation in the intestine and in mature osteoblasts on calcium and bone homeostasis. We report here that decreased intestinal calcium absorption in intestine-specific Vdr knockout mice resulted in severely reduced skeletal calcium levels so as to ensure normal levels of calcium in the serum. Furthermore, increased 1,25(OH)2D levels not only stimulated bone turnover, leading to osteopenia, but also suppressed bone matrix mineralization. This resulted in extensive hyperosteoidosis, also surrounding the osteocytes, and hypomineralization of the entire bone cortex, which may have contributed to the ...

The aim of this study was to examine whether brownish crown and root discoloration of wisdom teeth was related to treatment of acne with tetracyclines. For this purpose, 17 discolored third molars from nine patients were embedded without being decalcified, ground along the tooth axis, and examined using fluorescence microscopy. A thorough medical history served to determine the start and duration of any administration of tetracyclines. This confirmed the use of drugs against acne containing minocycline in all cases except one. The microscopic analyses of all teeth revealed intensely fluorescent bands in the dentin, which corresponded to the mineralization front at the time of tetracycline intake. More or less uniform discoloration of the entire crown was seen in association with treatment against acne prior to the completion of crown formation at the age of about 15 years. This uniform staining can be attributed to incorporation of minerals during ongoing maturation of the occlusal enamel, which ...
Hypophosphatasia is a rare inherited metabolic disease of decreased tissue nonspecific alkaline phosphatase (TNSALP) and defective bone mineralization. Both autosomal recessive and autosomal dominant variants of the disease exist. The disease comes in one of five forms, perinatal, infantile, childhood, adult, and odontohypophosphatasia. Perinatal hypophosphatasia is invariably lethal while infantile hypophosphatasia has a roughly 50% mortality rate with symptoms appearing within the first 6th months after birth. The other forms are generally non-lethal. Common symptoms include bone malformations and higher chance of bone fracture. Both the adult form and odontohypophosphatasial form are marked by premature teeth loss. There is no known cure for hypophosphatasia. However, there have been some claims that choline may have positive health benefits for those with the disease that take it as a dietary supplement. ...
The dentin-enamel junction (DEJ), which is the interface between the dentin and outer enamel coating in teeth, is known for its unique biomechanical properties that provide a crack-arrest barrier for flaws formed in the brittle enamel. In this work, we re-examine how cracks propagate in the proximity of the DEJ, and specifically quantify, using interfacial fracture mechanics, the fracture toughness of the DEJ region. Additionally, we show that the vital function of the DEJ, in preventing cracks formed in enamel from traversing the interface and causing catastrophic tooth fractures, is not necessarily associated with the crack-arrest capabilities of the DEJ itself, but rather with the development of crack-tip shielding, primarily from uncracked-ligament bridging, in the mantle dentin adjacent to the DEJ. Measurements of the toughness of the DEJ region give estimates of Gc ~; 115 J/m2, i.e., ~;5 to 10 times higher than enamel and ~;75 percent of that of dentin. ...
