Project: Identification of epithelial stem cells and role of Wnt signaling in continuous tooth replacement in non-mammalian vertebrates

project duration
01-JAN-05 – 31-DEC-08
This study aims at collecting (1) morphological evidence for the presence of epithelial stem cells, and (2) molecular evidence for the involvement of the Wnt signaling pathway, in repeated tooth renewal, using two model organisms: the zebrafish (Danio rerio) and the clawed toad (Xenopus laevis).
