According to the company, in-vitro testing has shown that stem cells attached to its titanium implant surface exhibited increased gene expression of certain osteogenic markers when compared to smooth titanium and PEEK.
[11] DPSCs can be used for rapid regeneration of craniofacial bone and alveolar bone, as they show more osteogenic potential than bone marrow stem cells.
DPSCs from supernumerary teeth have been reported for their MSC properties (1), differentiation capacity to osteogenic and adipogenic cell types (16, 17), and immunomodulatory activities (18).
Additionally, MC3T3-E1 cells were cultured in osteogenic differentiation medium, and the relative expression of miR-221 during the osteoblast differentiation process was detected at different time intervals (0, 4, 7, 14, 21, and 28 days) using qRT-PCR.
