Recent experimental evidence has led to the interpretation that "enamel-like" material is deposited along the forming mouse molar root surface by cells of Hertwig's epithelial root sheath (HERS cells) and that this material is integral to the developmental program for cementogenesis. The experimental strategy described in this study was to examine selected developmental stages of root formation for mouse first and second mandibular molars in order to localize the cellular sites of amelogenin… CONTINUE READING
