Tyrosyl Motif in Amelogenins BindsN-Acetyl-d-glucosamine*
TLDR
The amelogenin tyrosyl motif peptide sequence showed a similarity to the secondary GlcNAc-binding site of wheat germ agglutinin, and this latter modification mimics a point mutation identified in a case of human X-linked amelogenesis imperfecta. Expand
Factors affecting the fine specificity and sensitivity of serum antiganglioside antibodies in ELISA.
TLDR
A protocol for a sensitive and reproducible ELISA for serum antiganglioside antibodies is recommended and the ability of the antibody to distinguish between the target epitope of an antigen and epitopes of related antigens varied with different microtiter plates. Expand
Interaction between the enamel matrix proteins amelogenin and ameloblastin.
TLDR
Dosimetry and Scatchard analyses showed the specific interaction between ATMP and ameloblastin, suggesting that amelogenin may interact with amelOBlastin to form a heteromolecular assembly. Expand
A method for the rapid establishment of normal adult mammalian colonic epithelial cell cultures
TLDR
Methods are presented that results in the establishment of homogeneous cultures of adult rabbit colonic epithelial reproducibly, quickly, and in quantity, and the epithelial nature of the cultures is unambiguously established by intermediate filament typing using antikeratin antibodies. Expand
Enamel formation in vitro in mouse molar explants exposed to amelogenin polypeptides ATMP and LRAP on enamel development.
TLDR
Exogenous ATMP, T-ATMP and LRAP have divergent effects on developing enamel, which may play a role in the differentiation of ameloblasts, growth of enamel and formation of dentinal tubules. Expand
Spatiotemporal Expression of Ameloblastin Isoforms during Murine Tooth Development*
TLDR
Observations suggest that the 37-kDa isoform interacts with amelogenin during early tooth development, as revealed by laser scan confocal microscopy. Expand
The Enamel Protein Amelogenin Binds to the N-Acetyl-d-glucosamine-mimicking Peptide Motif of Cytokeratins*
TLDR
It is documents that molecular mimicry may play a role in stability and organization of amelogenin during amelogenesis. Expand
Amelogenin Interacts with Cytokeratin-5 in Ameloblasts during Enamel Growth*
TLDR
Confocal laser scan microscopic observations on ameloblasts during postnatal (PN) growth of the teeth showed that the K5-amelogenin complex migrated from the cytoplasm to the periphery (on PN day 1) and accumulated at the apical region on day 3. Expand
Amelogenin-Cytokeratin 14 Interaction in Ameloblasts during Enamel Formation*
TLDR
It is proposed that CK14 play a chaperon role for nascent amelogenin polypeptide during amelogenesis, and the dissociation of the co-assembly at the ameloblast Tomes' process is corroborated. Expand
Attenuated murine cytomegalovirus binds to N-acetylglucosamine, and shift to virulence may involve recognition of sialic acids
TLDR
High-performance thin-layer chromatography overlay of [35S]MCMV indicated that it binds to a GlcNAc-containing asialoglycolipid, and analogous experiments indicated that MCMV made virulent by in vivo salivary gland passage binds to sialic acids in addition to Glc NAc. Expand
