    Enamelin (ENAM) plays an important role in the mineralization of the forming enamel matrix. We have performed an evolutionary analysis of mammalian ENAM to identify highly conserved residues or regions that could have important function (selective pressure), to predict mutations that could be...

    Dental enamel formation is a remarkable example of a biomineralization process. The exact mechanisms involved in this process remain partly obscure. Some of the genes encoding specific enamel proteins have been indicated as candidate genes for amelogenesis imperfecta. Mutational analyses within...

    Conceptually, there should be a brief interval in time when newly secreted proteins "pile up" at secretory sites just outside the membrane of ameloblasts. Indeed, previous cytochemical studies have suggested that glycosylated and/or sulfated glycoproteins accumulate at enamel growth sites....

    The distribution pattern of the protein-polysaccharides in the rat incisor enamel was similar whether stained for glycoproteins (phosphotungstic acid) or for proteoglycans (alcian blue, bismith nitrate). Except for the holes at the dentino-enamel junction, where these components seem to exist as...
