The distribution of two cell-adhesion molecules, E- and P-cadherin, was studied in relation to morphological changes in Hertwig's epithelial root sheath Before root dentinogenesis had started, the root sheath expressed both cadherins. As dentinogenesis proceeded, the sheath fragmented and lost P-cadherin rapidly and E-cadherin slowly, whereas the intact sheath at the apical end continued to express both. These results suggest that the two cadherins play a part in root as well as in crown development, and indicate that the decrease in the amount of these molecules and the fragmentation of the epithelial root sheath are interrelated.
