Detection, Characterization, and Clinical Application of Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Periodontal Ligament Tissue: Advanced Study

August 28, 2020 Medicine and Medical Science 0

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a kind of somatic stem cells that exert a potential to differentiate
into multiple cell types and undergo robust clonal self-renewal, therefore they are considered as a
highly promising stem cell population for the tissue engineering. MSCs are identified in various adult
organs including dental tissues. Periodontal ligament (PDL) is a highly specialized connective tissue
that surrounds the tooth root. PDL also contains MSCs population and many researchers have
isolated them and performed their detailed characterization. Here, we review the current
understanding of the features and functions of MSCs population in PDL tissues and discuss their
possibility for the application of PDL regeneration.
