Effect of CSF-1 on in vivo expression of c-fos in the dental follicle during tooth eruption.

Abstract

It has been demonstrated that both colony-stimulating factor-one (CSF-1) and the transcription factor, c-fos are required for tooth eruption. Osteopetrotic mutant rats deficient in CSF-1 activity have unerupted teeth which can be induced to erupt by injections of CSF-1, and osteopetrotic mice deficient in c-fos, have unerupted teeth. Both CSF-1 and c-fos… (More)
