    • Effects of platelet-rich and -poor plasma on the reparative response of gingival fibroblasts 

      Cáceres, Mónica; Martínez, Constanza; Martínez Winkler, Jorge; Smith, Patricio (2012)
      Objectives: Although platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been proposed as a therapeutic tool to enhance wound repair, the cellular and molecular mechanisms stimulated by this agent are still not completely understood. The ...
    • Glycated collagen stimulates differentiation of gingival myofibroblasts 

      Retamal, Ignacio N.; Hernández, Romina; Melo, Francisco; Zapata, Paulina; Martínez Winkler, Jorge; Martínez, Constanza; Smith, Patricio C. (American Academy of Periodontology, 2017)
      Background: Glucose-derived metabolites may alter the structure and biologic properties of important proteins in periodontium, such as collagens. As a consequence, it is possible that collagen-binding cells may change their ...
    • Measurement of saliva volume in the mouth of members of a trained sensory panel using a beetroot (Beta vulgaris) extract 

      Müller, Katrina; Figueroa, Cristian; Martínez, Constanza; Medel Maraboli, Marcela; Obreque Slier, Elías; Peña Neira, Álvaro; Morales Bozo, Irene; Toledo, Héctor; López Solís, Remigio (2010)
      The volume of saliva in the mouth of sensory panelists was measured by a dilution assay using a freshly prepared beetroot extract as probe solution. An aliquot of the extract absorbing linearly at 531-nm (probe) was placed ...
    • Proliferation of Murine Midbrain Neural Stem Cells Depends upon an Endogenous Sonic Hedgehog (Shh) Source 

      Martínez, Constanza; Cornejo, Víctor Hugo; Lois, Pablo; Ellis, Tammy; Solis, Natalia P.; Wainwright, Brandon J.; Palma Alvarado, Verónica (PLoS ONE, 2013)
      The Sonic Hedgehog (Shh) pathway is responsible for critical patterning events early in development and for regulating the delicate balance between proliferation and differentiation in the developing and adult vertebrate ...
    • Synthesis of nanostructured porous silica coatings on titanium and their cell adhesive and osteogenic differentiation properties 

      Inzunza Araya, Débora Alejandra; Covarrubias Gallardo, Cristián; Von Marttens, Alfredo; Leighton, Yerko; Carvajal, Juan Carlos; Valenzuela, Francisco; Díaz Dosque, Mario; Méndez, Nicolás; Martínez, Constanza; Pino, Ana María; Rodríguez, Juan Pablo; Cáceres, Mónica; Smith, Patricio (Wiley, 2014)
      Nanostructured porous silica coatings were synthesized on titanium by the combined sol–gel and evaporationinduced self-assembly process. The silica-coating structures were characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission ...
