Abstract

Background and Objective: A growing amount of attention has been placed on periodontal regeneration and wound healing for periodontal therapy. This study was conducted in an effort to determine the effects of heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor on cell repopulation and signal transduction in periodontal ligament cells after scratch wounding in vitro. Material and Methods: Human periodontal ligament cells were acquired from explant tissue of human healthy periodontal ligament. After the wounding of periodontal ligament cells, the change in expression of heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor and epidermal growth factor receptors 1-4 mRNA was assessed. The effects of heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor on periodontal ligament cell proliferation and repopulation were assessed in vitro via the 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay and by photographing the injuries, respectively. Extracellular signal-regulated kinase (Erk)1/2, p38 and Akt phosphorylation was characterized via western blotting. Results: Scratch wounding resulted in a significant up-regulation of heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor mRNA expression, whereas wounding had no effect on the expression levels of epidermal growth factor receptors 1-4. Interestingly, no expression of epidermal growth factor receptors 2 and 4 was detectable prior to or after wounding. Heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor treatment promoted the proliferation and repopulation of periodontal ligament cells. The scratch wounding also stimulated the phosphorylation of Erk1/2 and p38, but not of Akt, in periodontal ligament cells, and heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor treatment applied after wounding amplified and extended the activations of Erk1/2 and p38, but not of Akt. Furthermore, Erk1/2 inhibition blocked the process of cell repopulation induced by heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor, whereas the inhibition of p38 delayed the process. Conclusion: These results indicate that heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor may constitute a critical factor in the wound healing of human periodontal ligament cells by a mechanism that requires the activation of Erk1/2 via specific interaction with epidermal growth factor receptor 1.
