New aspects on the utilization of inorganic sulphate during dentin formation

  • Bengt Sundström


Single, large doses of 35S-labelled sulphate were administered intravenously to 5 female mice, 7 weeks of age. The animals were killed 10 and 30 min, 4 and 24 h, and 3 days after injection. Decalcified, epoxy-embedded specimens of the upper incisors and molars were subsequently studied by light and electron microscopic autoradiography. In dentin formation, the labelled sulphate passes via the odontoblasts into the predentin. From there, only a small portion enters the mineralised dentin, a large portion being unbound at the mineralising front.
