connective tissue growth factor; fibroblast-inducible secreted protein-12; beta-IG-M2; insulin like growth factor binding protein 8 (Igfbp8)

Species: mouse
Method: in situ hybridization (radioactive), immunochemistry, reagent: 160b;polyclonal


Initiation stage
Expression: dental epithelium
No expression: oral epithelium, dental mesenchyme

Bud stage
Expression: oral epithelium, dental epithelium, dental mesenchyme

Cap stage
