Dental Follicle Stem Cells is an ectomesenchymal tissue surrounding the enamel organ and the dental papilla of the developing tooth germ prior to eruption. The tissue contains the progenitor cells that form the periodontium, (cementum, PDL, and alveolar bone). In culture DFSC adhere to plastic, proliferate well and like other mesenchymal stem cells show a typical fibroblast-like morphology. DFSCs express the embryonic marker OCT4 and the neural progenitor markers Notch-1 and nestin.
