Spatial distribution of epidermal growth-factor transcripts and effects of exogenous epidermal growth factor on the pattern of the mouse dental lamina.

Abstract

The initiation of odontogenesis is characterized by the site-specific proliferation of mandibular epithelium in the formation of the dental lamina. The epidermal growth factor (EGF) gene is expressed in the developing mandible immediately before the appearance of the dental lamina. This expression is necessary for the formation of the dental lamina and… (More)
