The specific role of FAM20C in dentinogenesis.
Dallas, United States. In J Dent Res, Feb 2015
To determine if the dentin defects in the Sox2-Cre;Fam20C(fl/fl) mice were associated with the enamel defects and hypophosphatemia, we crossed Fam20C(fl/fl) mice with Wnt1-Cre and Osr2-Cre transgenic mice to inactivate Fam20C in the craniofacial mesenchymal cells that form dentin and alveolar bone.
Molecular patterning of the mammalian dentition.
Cincinnati, United States. In Semin Cell Dev Biol, 2014
Bmp4 and Msx1 act in a positive feedback loop to drive sequential tooth formation whereas the Osr2 transcription factor restricts Msx1-mediated expansion of the mesenchymal odontogenic field along both the buccolingual and anteroposterior axes to pattern mouse molar teeth in a single row.
