We previously performed cDNA subtraction between the mouse mandibles on embryonic day 10.5 (E10.5) in the pre-initiation stage of the odontogenesis and E12.0 in the late initiation stage to identify genes expressed at its beginning. Adenosine triphosphate synthase subunit a (Atpase6) is one of the highly expressed genes in the E12.0 mandible including tooth(More)
This study presents the expression pattern and functions of thymosin beta 10 (Tbeta10), a Tbeta4 homologue during the development of mouse lower first molars. An in situ signal of Tbeta10 was detected on embryonic day 10.5 (E10.5)-E15.5 mainly in dental mesenchymal cells as well as in dental epithelial cells, while Tbeta4 was expressed in dental epithelial(More)
Previous studies have shown that the recombination of cells liberated from developing tooth germs develop into teeth. However, it is difficult to use human developing tooth germ as a source of cells because of ethical issues. Previous studies have reported that thymosin beta 4 (Tmsb4x) is closely related to the initiation and development of the tooth germ.(More)
Ameloblastoma is regarded to be a benign odontogenic tumor, but it is destructive, locally invasive and presents a high rate of recurrence. Thymosin β4 (Tβ4) is closely associated with tooth germ development. Tβ4 also plays a role in malignant progression and invasion. However, little is known about the function of Tβ4 in odontogenic tumors. Thus, we(More)
