Ultrastructural analysis of enamel formation during in vitro development using chemically-defined medium.
To test the hypothesis that enamel biomineralization is regulated by sequential expression of an intrinsic genetic program, we designed experiments to determine if a serumless, chemically-definedExpand

Hybrid dysgenesis in natural populations of Drosophila melanogaster in Japan. II. Strains which cannot induce P-M dysgenesis may completely suppress functional P element activity
Many inbred and isofemale lines derived from wild populations of Drosophila melanogaster were tested for gonadal dysgenic sterility, male recombination and sn w secondary mutation. Among them, weExpand

Metabolic expression of intrinsic developmental programs for dentine and enamel biomineralization in serumless, chemically-defined, organotypic culture
SummaryBiomineralization was investigated using embryonic mouse mandibular first molars (M1) cultured in the presence or absence of fetal calf serum. Metabolic features including cell division andExpand

Comparison of Developmental Competence of In Vitro Fertilized Embryos Obtained from Prepubertal to Pubertal C57BL/6J mice of Various Ages
Side population (SP) analysis has become an important method for defining the stem cell-related studies. Particularly, this method has a unique advantage in the detection of stem cells and in theirExpand
