Expression of Odc in mouse tooth

ornithine decarboxylase

Species: mouse
Location in mouse genome: chromosome 10, 8258900 - 8259457 (UCSC, assembly October 2003)
Tooth: molar
Method: in situ hybridization (radioactive), immunochemistry, reagent: 7.75Kb,350b; polyclonal, monoclonal


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

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

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

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

Odc expression increased in the terminally differentiating odontoblasts and ameloblasts..
