Expression of laminin alpha 2 in mouse tooth

Lama2

Species: mouse
Tooth: molar
Method: immunochemistry, antibody: monoclonal


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

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

After cap stage staining is lost from the basement membrane between the inner enamel epithelium and the dental papilla but remains in the rest of the basement membrane..

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