Tooth enamel protein amelogenin binds to ameloblast cell membrane-mimicking vesicles via its N-terminus.

We have recently reported that the extracellular enamel protein amelogenin has affinity to interact with phospholipids and proposed that such interactions may play key roles in enamel biomineralization as well as reported amelogenin signaling activities. Here, in order to identify the liposome-interacting domains of amelogenin we designed four different… (More)
