Introducing the EnamelBase resource
Published 13 March 2023
FaceBase is excited to introduce EnamelBase hosted by FaceBase, a sharing site for data, tools, and resources to accelerate scientific and technical progress in studying a multi-stage process of dental enamel formation called amelogenesis.
Tools and resources are available now and coming soon at https://www.facebase.org/resources/enamelbase/, including:
- Mouse Models: 20+ mutant, conditional-ready, Cre-driver, and reporter models available at MMRRC.
- In vitro bioreactor: A 3D co-culture system for the expansion and maintenance of ameloblast-like cells
- Protocols: To support secondary use of models and generation of enamel-focused datasets
- Multiple Data Types: Morphological, biochemical, histological, biophysical, high-resolution structural images, and multi-scale omics data
