The effect of accelerated odontogenesis of the rat mandibular incisor on the expression of receptors for epidermal growth factor (EGF) was examined using specific monoclonal antibodies to the receptor molecule. Acceleration of odontogenesis was achieved by regular trimming of the tooth crown. At normal eruption rates the major area of cross-reactivity was… CONTINUE READING
