AMELX Information: AMELX Protein, AMELX Antibody and AMELX Gene

AMELX Protein

AMELX protein function

Plays a role in biomineralization. Seems to regulate the formation of crystallites during the secretory stage of tooth enamel development. Thought to play a major role in the structural organization and mineralization of developing enamel.

AMELX protein expression

Induction

Transiently but abundantly expressed by ameloblasts during tooth development. Amelogenin is the predominant protein in developing dental enamel.
