  • Dentine sialoprotein (DSP) represents 5-8% of all non-collagenous proteins present in the tooth, but, together with dentine phosphoprotein, has been shown to be vital for correct tooth formation. Recently, the existence of a highly glycosylated form of porcine DSP has been reported and it was shown to possess glycosaminoglycan (GAG) chains. The current investigation confirms that this is also the case for bovine DSP and has further characterized these carbohydrates. Dentine sialoprotein was… CONTINUE READING
