cementocyte

cementocyte

 [se-men´to-sīt]
a cell found in lacunae of cellular cementum, frequently having long processes radiating from the cell body toward the periodontal surface of the cementum.

ce·ment·o·cyte

(sē-men'tō-sīt),
An osteocytelike cell with numerous processes, trapped in a lacuna in the cement of the tooth.

We generated the first cementoblast/ cementocyte cell line called IDG-CM6.
I look forward to future discoveries regarding cementocyte function and future therapeutics based on this knowledge.
The morphology of cementocytes resembles osteocytes (see Figure 2).
