 Amelogenins are the most abundant constituent in the enamel matrix of developing teeth. Recent investigations of rodent incisors and molar tooth germs revealed that amelogenins are expressed not only in secretory ameloblasts but also in maturation ameloblasts, although in relatively low levels. In this study, we investigated expression of amelogenin in the maturation stage of porcine tooth germs by in situ hybridization and immunocytochemistry. Amelogenin mRNA was intensely expressed in… CONTINUE READING
