E-GEOD-51342 - Comparative gene expression analysis of dental follicle and periodontal ligament in humans
Released on 21 August 2014, last updated on 22 August 2014
The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the gene expression profiles of dental follicle and periodontal ligament in humans, which can possibly explain their functions of dental follicle and PDL such as eruption coordination and stress resorption. That may apply this information to clinical problem like eruption disturbance and to periodontal tissue engineering. PDL samples were obtained from permanent premolars (n=11) and dental follicle samples were obtained during extraction of supernumerary teeth (n=4). Comparative cDNA microarray analysis revealed several differences in gene expression between permanent PDL and dental follicles.
