Expression of Gli3 in mouse tooth

Gli-kruppel family member 3

Species: mouse
Location in mouse genome: chromosome 13, 15273967 - 15544980 (UCSC, assembly October 2003)
Tooth: molar and incisor
Method: in situ hybridization (radioactive), probe:


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

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

Cap stage
Expression: oral epithelium, stellate reticulum, dental papilla, dental sac
No expression: outer enamel epithelium, inner enamel epithelium, enamel knot

Tooth development is arrested after initiation in transgenic mice lacking both Gli2 and Gli3..
