The selective adsorption of amelogenins onto synthetic hydroxyapatite (HA) and their inhibitory activity on the seeded HA crystal growth were investigated using enamel proteins obtained from the outer layer of immature porcine-enamel (soft, cheeselike in consistency) of developing permanent incisors. Special interests were paid to the effect of a postsecretory degradation of the original amelogenin(s) on their adsorption and inhibitory activity. In the adsorption studies, it was apparent that… CONTINUE READING
