Perturbation of Fgf10 signal pathway in mouse embryonic palate by dexamethasone and vitamin B12 in vivo.

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The Fgf10 signaling pathway plays an important role in early stages of mouse embryonic palatal development, which is associated with cell proliferation and differentiation. The objective of this study was to assess whether dexamethasone and vitamin B(12) affected the Fgf10 signal pathway of mouse embryonic palate. MATERIALS AND METHODS… (More)
