Targeted Disruption of Two Small Leucine-rich Proteoglycans, Biglycan and Decorin, Excerpts Divergent Effects on Enamel and Dentin Formation

Abstract

Small leucine-rich proteoglycans have been suggested to affect mineralization of dental hard tissues. To determine the functions of two of these small proteoglycans during the early stages of tooth formation, we characterized the dental phenotypes of biglycan (BGN KO) and decorin deficient (DCN KO) mice and compared them to that of wild type mice.
