An N-terminus with small acidic motif (DSpSpEE) that is also found in SIBLING proteins [65]. When solubilized, statherin has a random coil conformation. When bound to HA, it takes on a more alpha-helical structure exposing a bacterial binding site [63], leading to bacterial entrapment. Another example is the role of the IDP, DMP1, in preventing kidney and cardiovascular calcification. The double k

To the mineralization process [56]. Further, Wendy Shaw's group used NMR spectroscopy to examine the WT mouse and mutant amelogenins to confirm the pre-mature self-assembly of the mutant proteins [57]. Other studies show how the amelogenin structure is modified during its interaction with HA, phospholipids, other enamel proteins [58] and even collagen (remember that amelogenin does not interact wi

Hinge region of type VII collagen, associated with dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa, is also intrinsically disordered [67]. Additionally, the SIBLING proteins, all IDPs, are also associated with vascular [68,69] and other soft tissue calcifications [70]. Since their genes are expressed in cells associated with these deposits they cannot have accumulated simply due to their affinities for HA or col
