The length and extent of the odontoblast cell process in dentine has been the subject of controversy for many years. Here an immunofluorescence technique has been applied at the light microscope level to rat coronal dentine to localize the intracellular components actin and tubulin. Adult rats were perfused with periodate-lysine-paraformaldehyde fixative, teeth were extracted, the molar crowns were demineralized, dehydrated, wax embedded, and 6 micron sections were prepared. The sections were… CONTINUE READING
