Expression of tuftelin in mouse tooth

Species: mouse
Tooth: lower molar
Method: immunochemistry, antibody: polyclonal


Bell stage
Expression: inner enamel epithelium, dental papilla

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

Distribution changed from the odontoblast cell layer to the dentine-enamel junction during tooth mineralization...

Secretory stage
Expression: stratum intermedia, ameloblasts, enamel, odontoblasts
No expression: outer enamel epithelium, stellate reticulum, dental papilla, dental sac, predentin, dentin

Tuftelin mRNA was detected by RT-PCR since mouse embryonic day 13 (bud stage).
