Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) designates a group of genetic diseases characterized by a large range of enamel disorders causing important social and health problems. These defects can result from mutations in enamel matrix proteins or protease encoding genes. A range of mutations in the enamel cleavage enzyme matrix metalloproteinase-20 gene (MMP20) produce(More)
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) binding factor (BF) was found in surface fluids from competent and noncompetent cells of Streptococcus sanguis strains Challis, Wicky, and Blackburn. Fluids from noncompetent cells exhibited about 10% BF activity compared with extracts from competent cells. BF from competent Wicky cells was purified to homogeneity by(More)
In a previous report we demonstrated the presence of a factor binding deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) in vitro (BF) in cell leakage fluids from transformable Streptococcus sanguis strains Wicky, Challis, and Blackburn. BF originating from strain Wicky was purified to homogeneity, and its properties are described. In this work, it was found that BF occurs at the(More)
A new Streptococcus sanguis strain Wicky endonuclease was isolated, purified and partially characterized. This nuclease acts preferentially on thermally denatured DNA, is not inhibited by RNA and is activated 3-5 times by trypsin. This activation is accompanied by the reduction of molecular weight of the enzyme. These features distinguish the new S, sanguis(More)
