An investigation of the changes taking place in the enamel and the enamel organ during enamel development has been carried out by analyzing small samples of tissue dissected from developing incisors of rat and bovine incisors. Observations showed that the synthesis of the enamel matrix and its subsequent loss were associated chiefly with a change in the major matrix components. This consisted of a selective loss of amelogenin components prior to secondary mineralization. Before this loss, some… CONTINUE READING
