Transcriptional regulation of the basic helix-loop-helix factor AmeloD during tooth development.

J Cell Physiol 2021 Apr 12. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Department of Oral Health and Development Sciences, Division of Pediatric Dentistry, Tohoku University Graduate School of Dentistry, Sendai, Japan.

The epithelial-mesenchymal interactions are essential for the initiation and regulation of the development of teeth. Following the initiation of tooth development, numerous growth factors are secreted by the dental epithelium and mesenchyme that play critical roles in cellular differentiation. During tooth morphogenesis, the dental epithelial stem cells differentiate into several cell types, including inner enamel epithelial cells, which then differentiate into enamel matrix-secreting ameloblasts.

Histone Deacetylases in the Inflamed Intestinal Epithelium-Promises of New Therapeutic Strategies.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2021 26;8:655956. Epub 2021 Mar 26.

Department of Gastroenterology, Infectious Diseases and Rheumatology, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Corporate Member of Freie Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

The intestinal epithelium is a complex, dynamic barrier that separates luminal contents from the immune compartment while mediating nutrient absorption and controlled passage of antigens to convey oral tolerance. A compromised epithelial barrier often leads to inflammation because immune cells in the lamina propria come into direct contact with luminal antigens. Defects in epithelial cell function were also shown to be involved in the etiology of inflammatory bowel diseases. Read More

MgO Nanoparticles-Incorporated PCL/Gelatin-Derived Coaxial Electrospinning Nanocellulose Membranes for Periodontal Tissue Regeneration.

Front Bioeng Biotechnol 2021 25;9:668428. Epub 2021 Mar 25.

Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Oral Diseases, Nanjing Medical University, Nanjing, China.

Electrospinning technique has attracted considerable attention in fabrication of cellulose nanofibrils or nanocellulose membranes, in which polycaprolactone (PCL) could be used as a promising precursor to prepare various cellulose nanofibril membranes for periodontal tissue regeneration. Conventional bio-membranes and cellulose films used in guided tissue regeneration (GTR) can prevent the downgrowth of epithelial cells, fibroblasts, and connective tissue in the area of tooth root but have limitations related to osteogenic and antimicrobial properties. Cellulose nanofibrils can be used as an ideal drug delivery material to encapsulate and carry some drugs. Read More

Cancer Stem Cell-Targeted Therapeutic Approaches for Overcoming Trastuzumab Resistance in HER2-Positive Breast Cancer.

Stem Cells 2021 Apr 9. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

State Key Laboratory of Oral Diseases, National Clinical Research Center for Oral Diseases, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences Research Unit of Oral Carcinogenesis and Management, West China Hospital of Stomatology, Sichuan University, Chengdu, People's Republic of China.

Application of the anti-HER2 drug trastuzumab has significantly improved the prognosis of patients with the HER2-positive subtype of breast cancer. However, 50% of patients with HER2 amplification relapse due to trastuzumab resistance. Accumulating evidence indicates that breast cancer is driven by a small subset of cancer-initiating cells or breast cancer stem cells (BCSCs), which have the capacity to self-renew and differentiate to regenerate the tumor cell hierarchy.
