Scanning electron microscopy of the lateral cell surfaces of rat incisor ameloblasts. (1/196)

Dry dissected rat incisor ameloblasts studied in the scanning electron microscope show remarkable specializations of their lateral surfaces. Four or five cycles of a change from a surface with longitudinal gutterlike folds associated with large intercellular spaces, to one with microvilli and reduced intercellular spaces, are found along the length of the lower incisor maturation zone. It is argued that these changes indicate cyclical activity in maturation ameloblasts.  (+info)

Targeted disruption of the LAMA3 gene in mice reveals abnormalities in survival and late stage differentiation of epithelial cells. (2/196)

Laminin 5 regulates anchorage and motility of epithelial cells through integrins alpha6beta4 and alpha3beta1, respectively. We used targeted disruption of the LAMA3 gene, which encodes the alpha3 subunit of laminin 5 and other isoforms, to examine developmental functions that are regulated by adhesion to the basement membrane (BM). In homozygous null animals, profound epithelial abnormalities were detected that resulted in neonatal lethality, consistent with removal of all alpha3-laminin isoforms from epithelial BMs. Alterations in three different cellular functions were identified. First, using a novel tissue adhesion assay, we found that the mutant BM could not induce stable adhesion by integrin alpha6beta4, consistent with the presence of junctional blisters and abnormal hemidesmosomes. In the absence of laminin 5 function, we were able to detect a new ligand for integrin alpha3beta1 in the epidermal BM, suggesting that basal keratinocytes can utilize integrin alpha3beta1 to interact with an alternative ligand. Second, we identified a survival defect in mutant epithelial cells that could be rescued by exogenous laminin 5, collagen, or an antibody against integrin alpha6beta4, suggesting that signaling through beta1 or beta4 integrins is sufficient for survival. Third, we detected abnormalities in ameloblast differentiation in developing mutant incisors indicating that events downstream of adhesion are affected in mutant animals. These results indicate that laminin 5 has an important role in regulating tissue organization, gene expression, and survival of epithelium.  (+info)

Expression of the Fanconi anemia group A gene (Fanca) during mouse embryogenesis. (3/196)

About 80% of all cases of Fanconi anemia (FA) can be accounted for by complementation groups A and C. To understand the relationship between these groups, we analyzed the expression pattern of the mouse FA group-A gene (Fanca) during embryogenesis and compared it with the known pattern of the group-C gene (Fancc). Northern analysis of RNA from mouse embryos at embryonic days 7, 11, 15, and 17 showed a predominant 4.5 kb band in all stages. By in situ hybridization, Fanca transcripts were found in the whisker follicles, teeth, brain, retina, kidney, liver, and limbs. There was also stage-specific variation in Fanca expression, particularly within the developing whiskers and the brain. Some tissues known to express Fancc (eg, gut) failed to show Fanca expression. These observations show that (1) Fanca is under both tissue- and stage-specific regulation in several tissues; (2) the expression pattern of Fanca is consistent with the phenotype of the human disease; and (3) Fanca expression is not necessarily coupled to that of Fancc. The presence of distinct tissue targets for FA genes suggests that some of the variability in the clinical phenotype can be attributed to the complementation group assignment.  (+info)

Localization of putative stem cells in dental epithelium and their association with Notch and FGF signaling. (4/196)

The continuously growing mouse incisor is an excellent model to analyze the mechanisms for stem cell lineage. We designed an organ culture method for the apical end of the incisor and analyzed the epithelial cell lineage by 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine and DiI labeling. Our results indicate that stem cells reside in the cervical loop epithelium consisting of a central core of stellate reticulum cells surrounded by a layer of basal epithelial cells, and that they give rise to transit-amplifying progeny differentiating into enamel forming ameloblasts. We identified slowly dividing cells among the Notch1-expressing stellate reticulum cells in specific locations near the basal epithelial cells expressing lunatic fringe, a secretory molecule modulating Notch signaling. It is known from tissue recombination studies that in the mouse incisor the mesenchyme regulates the continuous growth of epithelium. Expression of Fgf-3 and Fgf-10 were restricted to the mesenchyme underlying the basal epithelial cells and the transit-amplifying cells expressing their receptors Fgfr1b and Fgfr2b. When FGF-10 protein was applied with beads on the cultured cervical loop epithelium it stimulated cell proliferation as well as expression of lunatic fringe. We present a model in which FGF signaling from the mesenchyme regulates the Notch pathway in dental epithelial stem cells via stimulation of lunatic fringe expression and, thereby, has a central role in coupling the mitogenesis and fate decision of stem cells.  (+info)

Spatial and temporal activity of the dentin sialophosphoprotein gene promoter: differential regulation in odontoblasts and ameloblasts. (5/196)

Dentin sialoprotein and dentin phosphoprotein are non-collagenous proteins that are cleavage products of dentin sialophosphoprotein (DSPP). Although these two protein products are believed to have a crucial role in the process of tooth mineralization, their precise biological functions and the molecular mechanisms of gene regulation are not clearly understood. To understand such functions, we have developed a transgenic mouse model expressing a reporter gene (lacZ) under the control of approximately 6 kb upstream sequences of Dspp. The transgenic fusion protein was designed to reside within the cells to facilitate the precise identification of cell type and developmental stages at which the Dspp-lacZ gene is expressed. The results presented in this report demonstrate: (a) the 6 kb upstream sequences of Dspp have the necessary regulatory elements to direct the tissue specific expression of the transgene similar to endogenous Dspp, (b) both odontoblasts and ameloblasts exhibit transgene expression in a differentiation dependent manner, and (c) a differential regulation of the transgene in odontoblasts and ameloblasts occurs during tooth development and mineralization.  (+info)

Subtilisin-like proprotein convertase PACE4 (SPC4) is a candidate processing enzyme of bone morphogenetic proteins during tooth formation. (6/196)

The temporospatial expression of PACE4, a member of the mammalian subtilisin-like proprotein convertase family, in the developing rat molar tooth was determined by in situ hybridization. At the initiation stage of tooth development, PACE4 mRNA was weakly expressed in the dental lamina, whereas the mesenchymal cells intensely expressed the PACE4 transcript. At the bud stage, high-level expression of PACE4 mRNA was found in the dental epithelium and condensed dental mesenchyme. Its expression became more localized in the differentiating ameloblasts during cap and early bell stages. In the newborn rats, PACE4 mRNA was localized in the ameloblasts and odontoblasts, but its expression became weaker with advancing development, showing apparent association with the differentiation and establishment of functional ameloblasts and odontoblasts. These expression patterns of PACE4 were very similar to those of several bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) reported previously. Because BMPs, which are primarily involved in the morphogenesis in tooth formation, are synthesized as inactive precursors and activated by limited proteolysis at the consensus Arg-X-X-Arg maturation site, the present observations suggest that PACE4 is possibly a candidate proBMP convertase that acts during tooth formation.  (+info)

Transcription factor Sp3 is essential for post-natal survival and late tooth development. (7/196)

Sp3 is a ubiquitously expressed transcription factor closely related to Sp1 (specificity protein 1). We have disrupted the mouse Sp3 gene by homologous recombination. Sp3-deficient embryos are growth retarded and invariably die at birth of respiratory failure. The cause for the observed breathing defect remains obscure since only minor morphological alterations were observed in the lung, and surfactant protein expression is indistinguishable from that in wild-type mice. Histological examinations of individual organs in Sp3(-/-) mice show a pronounced defect in late tooth formation. In Sp3 null mice, the dentin/enamel layer of the developing teeth is impaired due to the lack of ameloblast-specific gene products. Comparison of the Sp1 and Sp3 knockout phenotype shows that Sp1 and Sp3 have distinct functions in vivo, but also suggests a degree of functional redundancy.  (+info)

Calbindin D28k-like immunoreactivity during the formation of the enamel-free area in the rat molar teeth. (8/196)

Previous studies have demonstrated the presence of calbindin D28k in the ameloblasts derived from the inner enamel epithelium. The occlusal surfaces of the rodent molars partly lack the enamel covering, which is referred to as enamel-free area (EFA). In the present study, we compared the immunohistochemical localization of calbindin D28k-like immunoreactivity (CB-LI) in the cells at the EFA (EFA cells) and ameloblasts of the rat molar teeth at the light microscopic level. CB-LI was strong in the ameloblasts of the presecretory through the protective stages, while it was faint at the late secretory to transitional stages. However, some mature ameloblasts lacked the immunoreactivity. On the other hand, the majority of EFA cells showed distinct polarization and elongation that were absent in few cells at the early stage of EFA formation. At all stages, the EFA cells adjacent to the ameloblasts showed CB-LI, however, some cells adjacent to the mature ameloblasts lacked the reaction. Intensive CB-LI was demonstrated in EFA cells at the reduced enamel epithelium. These immunohistochemical findings suggest EFA cells have cytochemical properties similar to those of ameloblasts.  (+info)

Enamel is the hardest tissue with the highest degree of mineralization protecting the dental pulp from injury in vertebrates. The ameloblasts differentiated from ectoderm-derived epithelial cells are a single cell layer and are important for the enamel formation and mineralization. Wnt/β-catenin signaling has been proven to exert an important role in the mineralization of bone, dentin and cementum. Little was known about the regulatory mechanism of Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway in ameloblasts during amelogenesis, especially in the mineralization of enamel. To investigate the role of β-catenin in ameloblasts, we established Amelx-Cre; β-catenin∆ex3fl/fl (CA-β-catenin) mice, which could constitutive activate β-catenin in ameloblasts. It showed the delayed mineralization and eventual hypomineralization in the incisor enamel of CA-β-catenin mice. Meanwhile, the amelogenesis-related proteinases Mmp20 and Klk4 were decreased in the incisors of CA-β-catenin mice. These data indicated that ...
The transcription factor Ctip2/Bcl11b plays essential roles in developmental processes of the immune and central nervous systems and skin. Here we show that Ctip2 also plays a key role in tooth development. Ctip2 is highly expressed in the ectodermal components of the developing tooth, including inner and outer enamel epithelia, stellate reticulum, stratum intermedium, and the ameloblast cell lineage. In Ctip2−/− mice, tooth morphogenesis appeared to proceed normally through the cap stage but developed multiple defects at the bell stage. Mutant incisors and molars were reduced in size and exhibited hypoplasticity of the stellate reticulum. An ameloblast-like cell population developed ectopically on the lingual aspect of mutant lower incisors, and the morphology, polarization, and adhesion properties of ameloblasts on the labial side of these teeth were severely disrupted. Perturbations of gene expression were also observed in the mandible of Ctip2−/− mice: expression of the ameloblast ...
Cells of the inner enamel epithelium located adjacent to the dental papilla mesenchymal cells, differentiate into early ameloblasts during the bell stage. Early ameloblasts differentiate into mature cells through pre-secretory and secretory stages. During the pre-secretory stage, the early ameloblasts differentiate and initiate synthesis of the enamel-related proteins. In the secretory stage, the matrix proteins accumulate extracellularly and the tooth crown is formed ...
Objective: To observe the effect of fluoride overdose on the proliferation of the pure Wistar rats incisor ameloblasts. Material and Methods: Twenty healthy Wistar rats were randomly divided into 2 groups, Group I (the control) and Group II (receiving 50 mg/L F-). After 8 weeks treatment the AgNORs stain and TUNEL technique were used to analyze the effect of fluoride on the proliferation and apoptosis of ameloblasts. Results: Incremental lines in the incisors in Group II were clearly visible and eosinophilic granules had accumulated in the ameloblasts in the secretory stage. The number of AgNORs granules in the ameloblasts in the pre-secretory stage in Group II was lower than in Group I, and the difference was statistically relevant (p < 0.001); more ameloblasts experienced apoptosis or migrated in the secretory stage. Conclusion: Fluoride overdose can inhibit proliferation of the ameloblasts and accelerate their apoptosis, which is what is meant by fluorosis. ...

Researchers identify a molecular mechanism that controls the precise patterning of enamel formation on incisor teeth. Mouse incisors are covered with enamel on the side closest to the lip while the other side remains enamel-free. This irregular distribution of enamel helps keep the cutting edges of the incisors very sharp. While it is well established that ameloblasts secrete enamel, the molecular signals regulating asymmetric ameloblast differentiation from the underlying dental epithelium are not well understood.
The bone matrix and tooth enamel are the hardest substances in the body, and both are formed through the mineralization of proteins secreted by osteoblasts and ameloblasts, respectively. One of the primary components of the bone matrix is collagen, which provides strength, as well as acts as a substrate for mineralization. Amelogenin is the main extracellular matrix protein secreted by ameloblasts and is important for both the inclusion of minerals and the proper structure of tooth enamel. Defects in the secretion or structure of these extracellular matrices compromise the strength and durability of the tissues. Two studies reveal distinct mechanisms of secretory dysregulation that affect proper mineralization of these tissues. Zhao et al. found that the trimeric intracellular cation channel Tric-b, which localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), was important to secretion of collagen by osteoblasts in mice. Mutations in TMEM38b, the human homolog of Tric-b, are associated with osteogenesis ...

The rodent incisor is one of the evolutionary adaptations that make rodents such a successful group. There are two incisors in the upper jaw and two in the lower jaw. The incisors are separated from the molars by a diastema region, an area without any teeth. The tissue of the incisor is regenerated from the apical end and constantly wears down at the distal tip. The ever-growing incisor can be subdivided into two areas, the crown analogue and the root analogue. The crown analogue is the labial half of the incisor. It is characterized by an enlarged cervical loop at the apical end. The cervical loop is the epithelial stem cell niche. The epithelial progeny of the crown analogues cervical loop differentiates into ameloblasts that produce enamel. The root analogue is the lingual half of the incisor. Its cervical loop is much smaller and the epithelium does not differentiate into ameloblasts, but instead forms a root sheath and fragments into epithelial cell rests of Malassez typical of root ...
The effect of a 2 hour exposure to adriamycin (1 mg/litre) on alkaline phosphatase (ALPase) activity of the golden hamster 4-5 day old second maxillary molars (M2) was investigated in vitro. The molars were grown in BGJb medium containing 15% fetal bovine serum, glutamine (200 micrograms/ml), vitamin C (250 micrograms/ml), penicillin G (50 micrograms/ml), and streptomycin sulphate (30 micrograms/ml). The gas phase contained 50% O2 + 5% CO2 + 45% N2. The molars were supported on cellulosic membrane filters and grown for 3, 5, and 7 days at the medium-gas interface in a closed humidified chamber. Biochemical analysis indicated a steady increase in ALPase activity throughout this study in the control samples. However, after adriamycin treatment no increase in ALPase activity could be observed. The histochemical data showed that the increased activity in the control was confined to the peripheral pulp, sub-odontoblastic layer, stratum intermedium, ameloblasts and odontoblasts. Although these layers ...

Breast neoplasms are the second leading cause of cancer deaths of women in the United States. Recently, it has been shown by immunohistochemical staining of tumor biopsy tissue that nuclear localization of the odontogenic ameloblast associated protein (ODAM) correlated with staging and increased survival in patients, leading to the proposal of this protein as a novel biomarker in breast cancer. Further, ectopic expression of recombinant ODAM protein in the invasive breast carcinoma line MDA-MB-231 (231-ODAM) was shown to slow cell growth to 30-50% of that seen in control 231 cells, increase apoptosis, effect developmental change, and decrease the ability of cells to migrate or invade through extracellular matrix in transwell barrier assays. Further, this expression reduced the ability of these cells to form solid tumors by greater than 10-fold in immunodeficient mice, or establish tumor colonization of the lungs after tail vein injection. Herein, we show results of microarray and qRT-PCR data ...

Tooth enamel formation. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a freeze-fractured section through a tooth, showing the enamel-forming cell layer (green). This epithelium comprises a single layer of columnar cells called ameloblasts. The fracture plane passes up into the tooth from the enamel surface (orange, bottom left). The ameloblast layer has detached from the enamel in which it is normally embedded. Enamel is a hard ceramic layer that covers and protects the teeth. The other end of the ameloblasts originate in the internal tooth tissue (brown, across top). Magnification unknown. - Stock Image P486/0080

Dental enamel is the hardest mineralized tissue in the body and initially forms from a protein matrix. During enamel formation, ameloblasts secrete unique proteins into the extracellular space to direct mineralization of enamel crystallites. This specialized organic matrix contains the proteins amelogenin, ameloblastin, and enamelin. Amelogenin is the major enamel matrix protein secreted, comprising ~95% of the total matrix, yet after maturation and completion of amelogenesis, only ~1% of the initial organic matrix remains in mineralized enamel. Ameloblasts, being the only cells in close proximity to the organic matrix, most likely are responsible for the removal of proteinaceous matrix debris for proper enamel maturation. The rapid removal of enamel matrix proteins is poorly understood in the literature, principally because clathrin (the prototypical pathway for endocytosis) is expressed at very low levels in ameloblasts. Most of the historical record of endocytosis is focused on clathrin ...
Odontogenesis is governed by a complex network of intercellular signaling events between the dental epithelium and mesenchyme. This network leads to the progressive determination of tooth shape, and to the differentiation of these tissues into enamel-producing ameloblasts and dentin-producing odontoblasts respectively. Among the main signaling pathways involved in the regulation of tooth development, Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP), Sonic hedgehog (Shh) and Wingless-type MMTV integration site (Wnt) pathways have been reported to play significant roles. Recently, the phenotype of mice deficient in Epiprofin/Sp6 (Epfn) has been found to present striking dental abnormalities, including a complete lack of differentiated ameloblasts and consequently no enamel, highly altered molar cusp patterns and the formation of multiple supernumerary teeth. In this article, we review the interaction of Epfn with the BMP, Shh and Wnt pathways in the regulation of tooth development, based on the data obtained from the
We have studied the expression of transforming growth factor beta-1 (TGF-beta 1) RNA during mouse tooth development, using in situ hybridization and experimental tissue recombinations. Analysis of the serial sections revealed the appearance of local expression of TGF-beta 1 RNA in the dental epithelium at bud- staged teeth (13-day embryos). Just before transition to the cap stage, TGF-beta 1 RNA expression rapidly increased in the epithelial bud, and it also extended to the condensed dental mesenchyme. At cap stage (14- and 15-day embryos), there was an intense expression of TGF-beta 1 RNA in the morphologically active cervical loops of the dental epithelium. During early bell stage (16- and 17-day embryos), TGF-beta 1 RNA expression was detected in the inner enamel epithelium where it subsequently almost disappeared (18- day embryos). After birth TGF-beta 1 transcripts transiently appeared in these cells when they were differentiating into ameloblasts (1-day mice). The transcripts were lost ...
The polycomb protein BMI1 has been linked to maintenance of adult stem cells. Klein and colleagues find that BMI1 is also required for the maintenance of stem cells in the continuously growing mouse incisor, through repression of the Ink4a/Arf locus to modulate the proliferation of stem cells and repression of Hox genes to prevent inappropriate lineage decisions in stem cell progeny. The polycomb group gene Bmi1 is required for maintenance of adult stem cells in many organs1,2. Inactivation of Bmi1 leads to impaired stem cell self-renewal due to deregulated gene expression. One critical target of BMI1 is Ink4a/Arf, which encodes the cell-cycle inhibitors p16Ink4a and p19Arf (ref. 3). However, deletion of Ink4a/Arf only partially rescues Bmi1-null phenotypes4, indicating that other important targets of BMI1 exist. Here, using the continuously growing mouse incisor as a model system, we report that Bmi1 is expressed by incisor stem cells and that deletion of Bmi1 resulted in fewer stem cells, perturbed

Gangliosides, sialic acids that contain glycosphingolipids (GSLs), are involved in a variety of membrane-associated cell physiological functions such as ligand-receptor signal transmission. However, the expression patterns and functions of GSLs during tooth development remain unclear. In this study, we identified strong expressions of GM3 and LacCer in dental epithelium, which give rise to differentiation into enamel-secreting ameloblasts. Exogenous GM3 and LacCer in dental epithelial cells induced the expression of ameloblastin (Ambn), while it was also ...
Chronic fluoride over-exposure during pre-eruptive enamel development can cause dental fluorosis. Severe dental fluorosis is characterized by porous, soft enamel that is vulnerable to erosion and decay. The prevalence of dental fluorosis among the population in the USA, India and China is increasing. Other than avoiding excessive intake, treatments to prevent dental fluorosis remain unknown. We previously reported that high-dose fluoride induces endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and oxidative stress in ameloblasts. Cell stress induces gene repression, mitochondrial damage and apoptosis. An aromatic fatty acid, 4-phenylbutyrate (4PBA) is a chemical chaperone that interacts with misfolded proteins to prevent ER stress. We hypothesized that 4PBA ameliorates fluoride-induced ER stress in ameloblasts. To determine whether 4PBA protects ameloblasts from fluoride toxicity, we analyzed gene expression of Tgf-β1, Bcl2/Bax ratio and cytochrome-c release in vitro. In vivo, we measured fluorosis levels, enamel
Amelotin (AMTN) is an ameloblast-secreted protein that belongs to the secretory calcium-binding phosphoprotein (SCPP) family, which originated in early vertebrates. In rodents, AMTN is expressed during the maturation stage of amelogenesis only. This expression pattern strongly differs from the spatiotemporal expression of other ameloblast-secreted SCPPs, such as the enamel matrix proteins (EMPs). Furthermore, AMTN was characterized in rodents only. In this study, we applied various approaches, including in silico screening of databases, PCRs and transcriptome sequencing to characterize AMTN sequences in sauropsids and amphibians, and compared them to available mammalian and coelacanth sequences. We showed that (i) AMTN is tooth (enamel) specific and underwent pseudogenization in toothless turtles and birds, and (ii) the AMTN structure changed during tetrapod evolution. To infer AMTN function, we studied spatiotemporal expression of AMTN during amelogenesis in a salamander and a lizard, and compared the

N2 - The interaction between the epithelium and mesenchyme induces specific molecular and cellular changes that lead to organogenesis. These interactions are particularly crucial during the initiation of the development of ectodermal organs, such as teeth, skin, hair, and mammary and prostate glands. The oral epithelium provides the initial signaling for neuronal crest-derived ectomesenchyme development, and then both tissues interact during tooth formation. Various transcription factors, growth factors, and extracellular matrices are expressed by enamel matrix-producing ameloblasts during tooth development. Dental epithelium was lost after tooth eruption in human. To analysis of dental cell proliferation and differentiation, we ...

Effectss of EMDs on the epithelial tissue. Two surveies by Gestrelius et Al ( 1997b ) and Kawase et Al. ( 2000 ) examined the proliferation of unwritten epithelial cells utilizing in vitro rat lingua epithelial cells and in vivo trials severally. Both concluded that EMDs did non heighten proliferation of epithelial cells ; instead they arrested the growing of the cells, by maintaining them locked on the G1 stage of the mitotic rhythm. There has been grounds that the TGF-i?? may be the factor that causes this suppression. ( Bosshardt 2008 ). However, it has been witnessed by Rincon et Al. ( 2005 ) , that EMD significantly increases DNA synthesis from a specialized epithelial cell type called the Remainders of Malassez.

Hello again GitP. Long time, no post. A while back I started working on a skills rewrite. D&D 3.x placed a high value on skills but never actually delivered anything with them. You could use them for cool things with epic rules, but no one ever did because 1) epic had its own problems and 2) people already had items to do the things for them anyway. Later classes suffer from this less than early classes, but theyre also more narrow than I prefer. So I was annoyed at the state of things,

An odontogenic keratocyst is a rare and benign but locally aggressive developmental cyst. It most often affects the posterior mandible. It most commonly presents in the third decade of life.[1]. In the WHO/IARC classification of head and neck pathology, this clinical entity had been known for years as the odontogenic keratocyst; it was reclassified as keratocystic odontogenic tumour (KCOT) from 2005 to 2017.[2][3] In 2017 it reverted to the earlier name, as the new WHO/IARC classification reclassified OKC back into the cystic category.[4] The WHO/IARC classification no longer considers it a neoplasm, because the evidence supporting that hypothesis (for example, clonality) is considered insufficient. However, this is an area of hot debate within the head and neck pathology community, and some pathologists still regard OKC as a neoplasm despite the reclassification.. ...

  • Mice engineered to lack follistatin had functional ameloblasts on the normally enamel-free surface adjacent to the tongue. (eurekalert.org)
  • Each ameloblast is a columnar cell approximately 4 micrometers in diameter, 40 micrometers in length and is hexagonal in cross section. (wikipedia.org)
  • Maturation ameloblasts undergo several modulation cycles, involving two different types of cell morphology, during enamel maturation ( Josephsen and Fejerskov, 1977 ). (frontiersin.org)
  • Bcl9 and Pygo2 are present in differentiated, secretory ameloblasts but not in the stem cell niche. (sciencemag.org)
  • The polarity of ameloblasts and odontoblasts is crucial for their differentiation and function. (bvsalud.org)
  • This review summarizes the process of polarity formation of ameloblasts and odontoblasts and their related regulators. (bvsalud.org)
  • Multiple mechanisms, including direct fluoride-related effects on ameloblasts (secretory and maturation phases), indirect fluoride-related effects on the forming matrix (nucleation and crystal growth in all stages of enamel formation), and calcium homeostasis, can result in dental fluorosis depending on the dose and duration of fluoride exposure [ 4 , 5 ].
