Stretch force guides finger-like pattern of bone formation in suture

Mechanical tension is widely applied on the suture to modulate the growth of craniofacial bones. Deeply understanding the features of bone formation in expanding sutures could help us to improve the outcomes of clinical treatment and avoid some side effects. Although there are reports that have uncovered some biological characteristics, the regular pattern of sutural bone formation ...

Acetylated Sp1 inhibits PTEN expression through binding to PTEN core promoter and recruitment of HDAC1 and promotes cancer cell migration and invasion

Specificity protein 1 (Sp1) is often overexpressed in cancer cells. Its binding sites are known to exist in the phosphatase and tension homolog deleted on chromosome 10 (PTEN) promoter. In this study, we hypothesized that Sp1 negatively regulates PTEN expression. We used several cell lines to determine the effects of Sp1. The results showed that Sp1 overexpression inhibited the ...

Progression of Cartilage Degradation, Bone Resorption and Pain in Rat Temporomandibular Joint Osteoarthritis Induced by Injection of Iodoacetate

Background Osteoarthritis (OA) is an important subtype of temporomandibular disorders. A simple and reproducible animal model that mimics the histopathologic changes, both in the cartilage and subchondral bone, and clinical symptoms of temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis (TMJOA) would help in our understanding of its process and underlying mechanism. Objective To explore whether ...
