Amelogenin is the most abundant protein in developing dental enamel. It is believed to play an important role in the regulation of the growth and organization of enamel crystals. Amelogenin, unlike many other proteins found in biominerals, is mostly hydrophobic except for a 13 amino acid hydrophilic C-terminal domain. To clarify the role of amelogenin in enamel mineralization, we designed calcium phosphate crystal growth experiments in the presence of recombinant amelogenins with or without the… CONTINUE READING
