Histochemical Identification of Myosinlike Substance in Cells of the Human Dental Pulp

Leon A. Leonard, Mohamed M.H. Sharawy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A histochemical technique has been used to demonstrate myosin and myosinlike substances in muscle, endothelium, cilia, and myoepithelial cells. When this technique was applied to human dental pulp, similar nzyosinlike substances were demonstrated in smooth muscle cells, fibroblasts, endothelium, and odontoblastic processes.
