Expression of Bmp4 in mouse tooth

bone morphogenetic protein 4; Dvr4; Bmp2b; Bmp2b1

Species: mouse
Tooth: lower incisor
Method: in situ hybridization (radioactive), probe:


Bell stage
Expression: dental papilla
No expression: oral epithelium, outer enamel epithelium, inner enamel epithelium, stratum intermedia, stellate reticulum, dental sac

Late bell (differentiation) stage
Expression: preameloblasts, preodontoblasts
No expression: outer enamel epithelium, stratum intermedia, stellate reticulum, dental papilla, dental sac

In the odontoblasts bmp4 expression was on the labial and buccal side, In the ameloblasts bmp4 expression was on the labial side..
