    Dentin matrix protein(DMP)-1 is an acidic non-collagenous protein that is necessary for the proper biomineralization of bone, cartilage, cementum, dentin and enamel. Protein chemistry studies have shown that the full length of DMP-1, as a precursor, is cleaved into two distinct forms: the C-terminal and N-terminal fragments. DMP-1 is believed to have multiple functions in vivo, acting both as a signaling molecule and a regulator of biomineralization and is essential in the maturation of odontoblasts and osteoblasts. This article reviewed the role of DMP-1 in gene regulation, tissue/cell expression patterns, and biominerealized functions in dentinogenesis and osteogenesis.

    The expression of extracellular matrix metalloprotease inducer(EMMPRIN) raises significantly in many malignant tumors. Many studies have shown that EMMPRIN can facilitate the invasion of malignant tumours via stimulating matrix metalloprotease(MMP)production and play an important role in growth, invasion, metastasia and malignant potential of tumors. The advanced research about action mechanism and regulation of EMMPRIN, as well as relationship between EMMPRIN and oral and maxillofacial tumors, will be reviewed in this article.

    Recently, great progress in the bone tissue engineering has been aquired, however, various basic problems have to be solved before clinical application. The major drawbacks are the difference of function and behavior
    between osteoblasts in culture and their counterparts in vivo, deficiencies in bone-forming ability, and the large gap between tissue-engineered bones and the natural physiological bones. The reasons are probably that the microenvironment of cultivation is not perfect enough, engineered bone can not achieve the synchronization of vascularization and neurotization, and construction of the complex of tissue-engineered bone and periosteum is still lack of research.
