Mandibular first-molar tooth germs were dissected from 16-day-embryo and new-born CD1 mice. By incubation in collagenase they were separated into enamel organ, papilla and follicle. Dental pulp was obtained from mandibular first molars of 3-, 7- and 10-day-old mice. Various combinations of epithelial and mesenchymal tissues were grown for periods up to four weeks in the anterior chamber of the eye of homologous adult male mice. Recombinations of enamel organ and papilla formed teeth with… CONTINUE READING
