High impact information on Dental Papilla


Anatomical context of Dental Papilla


Associations of Dental Papilla with chemical compounds

  • EDTA- or trypsin-isolated dental papillae were grown for three to 24 h at the top of a plasma clot [9].
  • A chondroitin sulfate epitope in mammalian dental pulp and its developmental expression in mouse dental papilla [11].
  • During root formation, the follicular cells lost NCAM first from the level of the cervical root and later from the coronal part, while an additional NCAM positive area appeared deep in the dental papilla [12].
  • After the onset of cusp formation, strong staining was also observed over the occlusal region of the dental papilla while the cervical region of the dental papilla remained 2B6-negative [13].
  • In the region with poorly-developed aperiodic fibrils, the separation occurred at the junction between the inner enamel epithelial BM and the dental papilla, and the aperiodic fibrils were exposed, showing the typical picture of dithiothreitol separation [14].
