The amelogenin proteins are the most abundant organic components of developing dental enamel. Their importance for the proper mineralization of enamel is evident from the association between previously identified mutations in the X-chromosomal gene that encodes them and the enamel defect amelogenesis imperfecta. In this investigation, an adult male… CONTINUE READING
