Molecular cloning, sequence, and specificity of expression of the gene encoding the low molecular weight human salivary mucin (MUC7).
Previous biochemical studies have determined that human saliva contains high and low molecular weight mucin glycoproteins (MG1 and MG2, respectively) that are structurally distinct. In this study, weExpand

Salivary statherin. Dependence on sequence, charge, hydrogen bonding potency, and helical conformation for adsorption to hydroxyapatite and inhibition of mineralization.
The structural domains of salivary statherin that are partly responsible for the protection and recalcification of tooth enamel were examined with respect to charge, sequence, hydrophobicity,Expand

Salivary histatin 5: dependence of sequence, chain length, and helical conformation for candidacidal activity.
Histatin 5 (Asp1-Ser-His-Ala4-Lys-Arg-His-His8-Gly-Tyr-Lys-Arg12-Lys-Ph e-His-Glu16-Lys-His - His-Ser20-His-Arg-Gly-Tyr24), one of the basic histidine-rich peptides present in human parotid salivaExpand

Role of salivary mucins in the protection of the oral cavity.
Mucins are the principal organic constituents of mucus, the slimy visco-elastic material that coats all mucosal surfaces. Compelling evidence suggests that they play an integral role in non-immuneExpand

Biochemical and biophysical comparison of two mucins from human submandibular-sublingual saliva.
A high-molecular-weight mucin-glycoprotein (MG1) was isolated from human submandibular-sublingual saliva and was comprised of 14.9% protein, 29.0% N-acetylglucosamine, 9.4% N-acetylgalactosamine,Expand

Structural Aspects of Salivary Glycoproteins
The protective functions of saliva are attributed, in part, to its serous and mucous glycoproteins. We have studied, as representative molecules, the proline-rich glycoprotein (PRG) from humanExpand
