Mouse Tooth Development

Time-lapse imaging of a developing tooth germ derived from a transgenic mouse embryo (E 12.5–13.5). Co-expressing Fucci-G0/G1 probe and H2BEGFP. The tooth germ was cultured for 5 days ex vivo, and the images were taken at 30-min intervals. The lingual side is on the left.

Tooth morphogenetic dynamics viewed by an ex vivo time-lapse imaging system using transgenic mouse embryos co-expressing the Fucci-G0/G1 probe (Cdt1-mKO) and enhanced green fluorescent protein-labeled human histone 2B (H2B-EGFP).

  • Fluorescence ubiquitination cell cycle indicator - (FUCCI) whereby G0/G1 cells express a red fluorescent protein and S/G2/M cells express a green fluorescent protein.
  • Histone 2B - (H2B-EGFP) labels nucleus incorporated into nucleosomes without affecting cell cycle progression.

Note - Original research movie has been modified by the addition of labelling. Tooth stage labelling is only approximate.
