A non-proliferative signaling center kicks off tooth development

(University of Helsinki) Despite extensive research on the molecular regulation of early tooth development, little is known about the cellular mechanisms driving morphogenesis prior to enamel knot formation. In a recent study, published with a spotlight in Journal of Cell Biology, researchers from the Institute of Biotechnology, University of Helsinki, tackle this conundrum.
