Expression pattern of odontogenic ameloblast-associated and amelotin during formation and regeneration of the junctional epithelium.

Abstract

The junctional epithelium (JE) adheres to the tooth surface, and seals off periodontal tissues from the oral environment. This incompletely differentiated epithelium is formed initially by the fusion of the reduced enamel organ with the oral epithelium (OE). Two proteins, odontogenic ameloblast-associated (ODAM) and amelotin (AMTN), have been identified in… (More)
