The thermo-reversible transition (clear <--> opaque) of the amelogenin gel matrix, which has been known for some three decades, has now been clarified by microstructural investigations. A mixed amelogenin preparation extracted from porcine developing enamel matrix (containing "25K," 7.4%; "23K," 10.7%; "20K," 49.5%; and smaller peptides, 32.4%) was dissolved in dilute formic acid and reprecipitated by adjusting the pH to 6.8 with NaOH solution. Amelogenin gels were formed in vitro by… CONTINUE READING
