Nucleation clusters. In calcium phosphate solution, the presence of amelogenin stabilized small particles, aggregates with two or three particles and larger aggregates (pre-nucleation clusters). While needle shaped particles of hydroxyapatite were eventually formed, the amorphous aggregates were stabilized by amelogenin, leading to the statement that amelogenin inhibited (retarded) mineralization

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

Larreal-RamirezPagecations and anions [62]; the formation of such chains could also be true of the calcium phosphate prenucleation clusters. 2.2 Pathologic Calcification: Role of IDPs Calcifications occurring in unwanted places ?the aorta, salivary glands and soft tissues, are all associated with IDPs. To illustrate, salivary stones occur when mucins, such as statherin, an un-folded protein [63],

N and ameloblastin co-localized near the secretory face of ameloblasts at the earliest stages of their formation; with maturation, ameloblastin was lost from the enamel surface. Additionally, they found using circular dichroism, that amelogenin and ameloblastin could form stable complexes. C-terminal polypeptides of ameloblastin were cleaved into smaller peptides and lost from the extracellular ma
