MyD88 knockout mice develop initial enlarged periapical

AIM: To characterize the formation and progression of experimentally induced periapical lesions in teeth of MyD88 knockout (MyD88 KO) mice compared with wild-type (WT) mice. METHODOLOGY: Periapical lesions were induced in the mandibular first molars of 30 WT and 30 MyD88 KO mice. After 7, 21 and 42 days, the animals were euthanized and the mandibles were subjected to histotechnical processing. Histological sections were stained with haematoxylin and eosin (HE), TRAP histoenzymology,...
