Abstract:
The spatial distribution of Dlx-2 protein during murine tooth development has been investigated using immunohistochemistry with Dlx-2 antibodies. In common with several other homeobox genes expressed in toothgerms, Dlx-2 shows a multiphasic distribution in both epithelially and mesenchymally derived structures. This localization shows a number of similarities with the expression of Msx-2 and suggests a role for Dlx-2 in tooth initiation and tissue patterning.
