Role of microRNAs in improved osteogenicity of topographically modified titanium implant surfaces
Chakravorty, Nishant (2014) Role of microRNAs in improved osteogenicity of topographically modified titanium implant surfaces. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.
This project aimed at understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in the superior integration of micro-roughened titanium implant surfaces with the surrounding bone, when compared with their smooth surfaces. It involved studying the role of microRNAs and cell signaling pathways in the molecular regulation of bone cells on topographically modified titanium dental implants. The findings suggest a highly regulated microRNA-mediated control of molecular mechanisms during the process of bone formation that may be responsible for the superior osseointegration properties on micro-roughened titanium implant surfaces and indicate the possibility of using microRNA modulators to enhance osseointegration in clinically demanding circumstances.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
