The presence of an acid proteinase with a high activity has been demonstrated in isolated odontoblast-predentine material from dentinogenically active rat incisors. The enzyme was identified as cathepsind (EC The possible significance of the enzymatic degradation of proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans in the course of the calcification process is discussed.
