The immunohistochemical localization of heparan sulphate, collagen type I, III and IV, laminin, tenascin, plasma- and cellular fibronectin was studied in tooth germs from human fetuses. The lamina basalis ameloblastica or membrana preformativa, which separates the pre-ameloblasts from the pre-dentin and dentin, contained heparan sulphate, collagen type IV, laminin and fibronectin. Enamel reacted with antifibronectin, but the reaction varied depending on the type of fibronectin and the source of… CONTINUE READING
