dc.description.abstractTherapeutic angiogenesis is very promising, however, current revascularization strategies are unsuccessful. Since angiogenesis is key to the development of the tooth, this study compared the angiogenic potential of 3 dental stem cell (DSC) types: dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs), dental follicle stem cells (FSCs) and stem cells from the apical papilla (SCAPs). Angiogenic factors secreted by the DSCs were identified in a Human Angiogenesis Array, followed by validation by means of ELISA and RT-PCR. In vitro assays with a Human Microvascular Endothelial Cell line (HMEC-1) were performed to gain more insights in the effect of the DSCs on HMEC-1 proliferation, migration and tube formation in an MTT assay, a transwell system and a Matrigel assay respectively. The various DSCs express pro- and anti-angiogenic factors and induce HMEC-1 migration and tube formation, but not proliferation. DSCs thus provide opportunities to treat patients with cells from their own or other individuals' teeth.-
