Immunohistochemical localisation of amelogenin-like proteins and type I collagen and histochemical demonstration of sulphated glycoconjugates in developing enameloid and enamel matrices of the larval urodele (Triturus pyrrhogaster) teeth. (1/128)

The presence of collagen in enameloid distinguishes it clearly from true enamel, but little is known about the phylogenetic relationship between these 2 tissues. It has previously been reported that amelogenins are the principal proteins of the enamel matrix, that type I collagen and chondroitin sulphates are the predominant matrices in dentine, and that amphibian and reptilian aprismatic enamels, contain no sulphated glycoconjugates, although certain sulphated substances are secreted into mammalian prismatic enamel during matrix formation. The larval urodele (Triturus pyrrhogaster) teeth are known to be composed of enameloid, dentine, and enamel-like tissue. To characterise the tooth matrices, the localisation of amelogenin-like proteins, type I collagen, and sulphated glycoconjugates was investigated. Chondroitin sulphates and fine fibrils immunoreactive for type I collagen were elaborated as the enameloid matrix inside the dental basement membrane. After the matrix had been deposited in full thickness, coarse collagen fibrils also immunoreactive for type I collagen and chondroitin sulphates were deposited below as the first dentine matrix. Further, enamel-like matrix with no collagen fibrils or sulphated glycoconjugates but strongly immunoreactive for amelogenins was deposited on the dentine. Although no immunolabelling for amelogenins was found over the enameloid matrix, at least at the formation stage, the zone of coarse collagen fibrils of dentine was partially immunoreactive as observed in mammalian mantle dentine. From the ontogeny and matrix constituents of larval urodele teeth, it is suggested that enameloid is originally a dentine-like tissue.  (+info)

Proteinases in developing dental enamel. (2/128)

For almost three decades, proteinases have been known to reside within developing dental enamel. However, identification and characterization of these proteinases have been slow and difficult, because they are present in very small quantities and they are difficult to purify directly from the mineralizing enamel. Enamel matrix proteins such as amelogenin, ameloblastin, and enamelin are cleaved by proteinases soon after they are secreted, and their cleavage products accumulate in the deeper, more mature enamel layers, while the full-length proteins are observed only at the surface. These results suggest that proteinases are necessary for "activating" enamel proteins so the parent proteins and their cleavage products may perform different functions. A novel matrix metalloproteinase named enamelysin (MMP-20) was recently cloned from tooth tissues and was later shown to localize primarily within the most recently formed enamel. Furthermore, recombinant porcine enamelysin was demonstrated to cleave recombinant porcine amelogenin at virtually all of the sites that have previously been described in vivo. Therefore, enamelysin is at least one enzyme that may be important during early enamel development. As enamel development progresses to the later stages, a profound decrease in the enamel protein content is observed. Proteinases have traditionally been assumed to degrade the organic matrix prior to its removal from the enamel. Recently, a novel serine proteinase named enamel matrix serine proteinase-1 (EMSP1) was cloned from enamel organ epithelia. EMSP1 localizes primarily to the early maturation stage enamel and may, therefore, be involved in the degradation of proteins prior to their removal from the maturing enamel. Other, as yet unidentified, proteinases and proteinase inhibitors are almost certainly present within the forming enamel and await discovery.  (+info)

Edar/Eda interactions regulate enamel knot formation in tooth morphogenesis. (3/128)

tabby and downless mutant mice have apparently identical defects in teeth, hair and sweat glands. Recently, genes responsible for these spontaneous mutations have been identified. downless (Dl) encodes Edar, a novel member of the tumour necrosis factor (TNF) receptor family, containing the characteristic extracellular cysteine rich fold, a single transmembrane region and a death homology domain close to the C terminus. tabby (Ta) encodes ectodysplasin-A (Eda) a type II membrane protein of the TNF ligand family containing an internal collagen-like domain. As predicted by the similarity in adult mutant phenotype and the structure of the proteins, we demonstrate that Eda and Edar specifically interact in vitro. We have compared the expression pattern of Dl and Ta in mouse development, taking the tooth as our model system, and find that they are not expressed in adjacent cells as would have been expected. Teeth develop by a well recorded series of epithelial-mesenchymal interactions, similar to those in hair follicle and sweat gland development, the structures found to be defective in tabby and downless mice. We have analysed the downless mutant teeth in detail, and have traced the defect in cusp morphology back to initial defects in the structure of the tooth enamel knot at E13. Significantly, the defect is distinct from that of the tabby mutant. In the tabby mutant, there is a recognisable but small enamel knot, whereas in the downless mutant the knot is absent, but enamel knot cells are organised into a different shape, the enamel rope, showing altered expression of signalling factors (Shh, Fgf4, Bmp4 and Wnt10b). By adding a soluble form of Edar to tooth germs, we were able to mimic the tabby enamel knot phenotype, demonstrating the involvement of endogenous Eda in tooth development. We could not, however, reproduce the downless phenotype, suggesting the existence of yet another ligand or receptor, or of ligand-independent activation mechanisms for Edar. Changes in the structure of the enamel knot signalling centre in downless tooth germs provide functional data directly linking the enamel knot with tooth cusp morphogenesis. We also show that the Lef1 pathway, thought to be involved in these mutants, functions independently in a parallel pathway.  (+info)

Dental enamel formation and its impact on clinical dentistry. (4/128)

The nature of tooth enamel is of inherent interest to dental professionals. The current-day clinical practice of dentistry involves the prevention of enamel demineralization, the promotion of enamel remineralization, the restoration of cavitated enamel where demineralization has become irreversible, the vital bleaching of dental enamel that has become discolored, and the diagnosis and treatment of developmental enamel malformations, which can be caused by environmental or genetic factors. On a daily basis, dental health providers make diagnostic and treatment decisions that are influenced by their understanding of tooth formation. A systemic condition during tooth development, such as high fever, can produce a pattern of enamel defects in the dentition. Knowing the timing of tooth development permits estimates about the timing of the disturbance. The process of enamel maturation continues following tooth eruption, so that erupted teeth can become less susceptible to decay over time. Mutations in the genes encoding enamel proteins lead to amelogenesis imperfecta, a collection of inherited diseases having enamel malformations as the predominant phenotype. Defects in the amelogenin gene cause X-linked amelogenesis imperfecta, and genes encoding other enamel proteins are candidates for autosomal forms. Here we review our current understanding of dental enamel formation, and relate this information to clinical circumstances where this understanding may be particularly relevant.  (+info)

Possible role of heat shock protein (Hsp) 25 in the enamel organ during amelogenesis in the rat molar. (5/128)

The postnatal expression of heat shock protein (Hsp) 25 during the amelogenesis of rat molars was investigated by immunocytochemistry and confocal microscopy. The localization pattern of Hsp 25-immunoreactivity in the inner enamel epithelium and ameloblast cell layer of the rat molars was almost identical to that in the rat incisors which we have previously reported: an intense Hsp25-immunoreactivity, which first appeared in the preameloblasts, was recognized in secretory ameloblasts and ruffle-ended ameloblasts with stage-specific immunointensity. Confocal microscopy with Hsp 25-antibody and rhodamine-labeled phalloidin clearly demonstrated the co-localization of Hsp 25 and actin filaments in the ameloblast layer, supporting our hypothesis that this molecule might serve to reinforce the ameloblast layer during enamel formation as well as the formation and maintenance of the ruffled border in ruffle-ended ameloblasts. Interestingly, the enamel free area cells, which essentially lack the ability for enamel formation, showed the Hsp 25-immunoreactivity during 4-11 days when they developed a ruffled border, but decreased in that immunoreactivity after postnatal 15 days following apoptosis. Since Hsp 25 has been shown to be a specific inhibitor of apoptosis, the enamel-free area cells contribute to determine the outline of dentin at the cusped area. These data support our previous hypothesis on the diverse functions of Hsp 25 in amelogenesis.  (+info)

Phospholipids in amelogenesis and dentinogenesis. (6/128)

Phospholipids have been identified in enamel and dentin. Before demineralization, a group of phospholipids extracted by lipid solvents was associated with cell membranes and is therefore closely related to cell growth and intracellular regulations. After demineralization, a second group of phospholipids, associated with the extracellular matrix, was extracted; this group is probably linked to the mineralized phase. Using imidazole-osmium tetroxide fixation of rat incisors, we stained cellular unsaturated fatty acids, so that we could visualize the membrane domains, coated pits, and endocytic inclusions. Filipin, a probe for cholesterol, varied in density along the plasma membrane of secretory ameloblasts, and allowed us to visualize membrane remnants inside the forming enamel. With respect to phospholipids located in the extracellular matrix, the malachite-green-glutaraldehyde (MGA) method or iodoplatinate (IP) reaction retains and visualizes enamel and dentin phospholipids. In predentin, aggregates appearing as granules and filaments, or liposome-like structures, were located in the spaces between collagen fibrils. In dentin, organic envelopes coating the crystals, also named "crystal-ghost" structures, outlined groups of collagen fibrils. Histochemical data provided evidence that phospholipids are co-distributed or interact with proteoglycans. Radioautography after IP reaction established that [3H] choline was detected in dentin as early as 30 min after the intravenous injection of the labeled precursor, before any labeling was seen in odontoblasts and predentin. This suggests that blood-serum-labeled phospholipids pass between odontoblasts, cross the distal permeable junctional complex, and diffuse in dentin prior to any cellular uptake and phospholipid synthesis. Pharmacologically and genetically induced pathology also supports the suggestion that phospholipids play an important role in the formation and mineralization of dental tissues.  (+info)

Dental fluorosis: chemistry and biology. (7/128)

This review aims at discussing the pathogenesis of enamel fluorosis in relation to a putative linkage among ameloblastic activities, secreted enamel matrix proteins and multiple proteases, growing enamel crystals, and fluid composition, including calcium and fluoride ions. Fluoride is the most important caries-preventive agent in dentistry. In the last two decades, increasing fluoride exposure in various forms and vehicles is most likely the explanation for an increase in the prevalence of mild-to-moderate forms of dental fluorosis in many communities, not the least in those in which controlled water fluoridation has been established. The effects of fluoride on enamel formation causing dental fluorosis in man are cumulative, rather than requiring a specific threshold dose, depending on the total fluoride intake from all sources and the duration of fluoride exposure. Enamel mineralization is highly sensitive to free fluoride ions, which uniquely promote the hydrolysis of acidic precursors such as octacalcium phosphate and precipitation of fluoridated apatite crystals. Once fluoride is incorporated into enamel crystals, the ion likely affects the subsequent mineralization process by reducing the solubility of the mineral and thereby modulating the ionic composition in the fluid surrounding the mineral. In the light of evidence obtained in human and animal studies, it is now most likely that enamel hypomineralization in fluorotic teeth is due predominantly to the aberrant effects of excess fluoride on the rates at which matrix proteins break down and/or the rates at which the by-products from this degradation are withdrawn from the maturing enamel. Any interference with enamel matrix removal could yield retarding effects on the accompanying crystal growth through the maturation stages, resulting in different magnitudes of enamel porosity at the time of tooth eruption. Currently, there is no direct proof that fluoride at micromolar levels affects proliferation and differentiation of enamel organ cells. Fluoride does not seem to affect the production and secretion of enamel matrix proteins and proteases within the dose range causing dental fluorosis in man. Most likely, the fluoride uptake interferes, indirectly, with the protease activities by decreasing free Ca(2+) concentration in the mineralizing milieu. The Ca(2+)-mediated regulation of protease activities is consistent with the in situ observations that (a) enzymatic cleavages of the amelogenins take place only at slow rates through the secretory phase with the limited calcium transport and that, (b) under normal amelogenesis, the amelogenin degradation appears to be accelerated during the transitional and early maturation stages with the increased calcium transport. Since the predominant cariostatic effect of fluoride is not due to its uptake by the enamel during tooth development, it is possible to obtain extensive caries reduction without a concomitant risk of dental fluorosis. Further efforts and research are needed to settle the currently uncertain issues, e.g., the incidence, prevalence, and causes of dental or skeletal fluorosis in relation to all sources of fluoride and the appropriate dose levels and timing of fluoride exposure for prevention and control of dental fluorosis and caries.  (+info)

The structure of the rat ameloblastin gene and its expression in amelogenesis. (8/128)

Ameloblastin (also designated amelin and sheathlin) is an enamel matrix protein expressed within the ameloblast lineage. In this study we analyzed the structure of the rat ameloblastin gene and characterized its subtypes. The promoter sequence contains several E-box-like elements, and consensus sequences for AP1 and SP1. The gene is about 6 kb in length and contains 12 exons. Exon 1 was mapped by primer extension and encodes 90 bp of 5' untranslated leader sequence, followed by the coding sequences of exon 2 (309 bp), alternatively spliced exon 3a (45 bp), exon 3b (198 bp), exon 4 (36 bp), exon 5 (60 bp), exon 6 (45 bp), exon 7 (150 bp), and exon 8 (448 bp) containing coding sequence (426 bp) and 3' untranslated sequence (22 bp), followed by exon 9 (39 bp); exon 10 (143 bp); exon 11 (342 bp); and exon 12. Exon 3a, encoding YEYSLPVHPPPLPSQ, has a potential SH3 binding domain. Analysis of ameloblastin subclones showed that exon 3a and 11 were potential alternative splicing sites, producing 4 types of ameloblastin mRNA, from which ameloblastin I and II could be translated. Using in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry, Western blot and RT-PCR methods we found that ameloblastin II, containing exon 3a, was more strongly expressed at the late maturation stage of ameloblasts than at the secretory stage, while a common probe for both ameloblastin subtypes showed wide expression throughout the presecretory, secretory and postsecretory stages. From the above results we propose that ameloblastin II plays an important role in the mineralization of ameloblasts during the maturation stages.  (+info)

Mutations in the AMELX, ENAM, MMP20, KLK-4, FAM83H, WDR72, C4orf26, SLC24A4 LAMB3 and ITGB6 genes have been found to cause amelogenesis imperfecta (non-syndromic form). AMELX and ENAM encode extracellular matrix proteins of the developing tooth enamel and KLK-4 and MMP20 encode proteases that help degrade organic matter from the enamel matrix during the maturation stage of amelogenesis. SLC24A4 encodes a calcium transporter that mediates calcium transport to developing enamel during tooth development. Less is known about the function of other genes implicated in amelogenesis imperfecta.. Researchers expect that mutations in further genes are likely to be identified as causes of amelogenesis imperfecta.. Types include:. Amelogenesis imperfecta can have different inheritance patterns depending on the gene that is altered. Mutations in the ENAM gene are the most frequent known cause and are most commonly inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern. This type of inheritance means one copy of the ...
Amelotin is an enamel-specific gene product, and its expression under normal circumstances is limited to maturation-stage (or late-stage) amelogenesis. The altered pattern of amelotin gene expression is achieved by creating transgenic animals in which the amelogenin gene promoter is used to drive amelotin. This study sets out to analyze transgenic animals in which amelotin is expressed throughout all stages of enamel formation (amelogenesis). This thesis will include an introduction and background in tooth development (including amelogenesis), and present results demonstrating animal genotype confirmation, transgene expression profiles by immunohistochemical and Western analysis and enamel phenotype using electron microscopy. We hypothesized that "The transgene will be functional, and that the amelotin transgene will be expressed throughout all stages of amelogenesis, resulting in an abnormal enamel structure." Data from immunohistochemical studies showed amelotin to be expressed throughout all ...
Amelogenesis imperfecta is a genetic disorder that causes defective enamel development in both the primary and permanent dentitions. Significant tooth structure damage often results in various pulpal symptoms, occlusal disharmony, impaired function, and esthetic disfigurement. These problems pose great challenges to the clinician when rehabilitating patients with amelogenesis imperfecta. This case report describes an uncomplicated and logical way to reorganize, temporize, and completely restore an extensively damaged dentition caused by amelogenesis imperfecta ...

Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a group of inherited defects of dental enamel formation that show both clinical and genetic heterogeneity [1]. In its mildest form, AI causes discoloration, while in the most severe presentation the enamel is hypocalcified causing it to be abraded from the teeth shortly after their emergence into the mouth [2]. Both the primary and permanent dentitions may be affected. Enamel findings in AI are highly variable, ranging from deficient enamel formation to defects in the mineral and protein content [3]. Four main types of AI have been described: hypoplastic, hypocalcified, hypomaturation and hypomaturation-hypoplastic with taurodontism [4].. The AI phenotypes vary widely depending on the specific gene involved, the location and type of mutation, and the corresponding putative change at the protein level [5]. Different inheritance patterns such as X-linked, autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive types have been reported and 14 subtypes of AI are recognized ...

Amelogenesis imperfecta is an inherited defect of dental enamel formation that shows both clinical and genetic heterogeneity. In the hypoplastic type of AI, the enamel is of normal hardness but does not develop to normal thickness. The thinness of the enamel makes the teeth appear small. Radiographically, enamel contrasts normally from dentin. The surface of the enamel can vary, showing smooth, rough, pitted, or local forms (Witkop, 1988).
that are essential for normal tooth development. These proteins are involved in the formation of enamel, which is the hard, calcium-rich material that forms the protective outer layer of each tooth. Mutations in any of these genes alter the structure of these proteins or prevent the genes from making any protein at all. As a result, tooth enamel is abnormally thin or soft and may have a yellow or brown color. Teeth with defective enamel are weak and easily damaged.[1] In some cases, the genetic cause of amelogenesis imperfecta can not been identified. Researchers are working to find mutations in other genes that are responsible for this disorder.[1]. Click on each gene name to learn more about the role it plays in the development of tooth enamel. ...

Though the major protein players have been identified and the high-resolution structure of enamel has been obtained, the process of its formation remains difficult to piece together because of its complexity, and is compounded by results from different laboratories that do not always reconcile well with each other. Multiple attempts to engineer artificial enamel have failed to reproduce the macromolecular interweaving structure of enamel rods or recapitulate the unique mechanical properties of natural enamel. A static in vitro method involving organic and inorganic molecular components lacks the dynamic variables that cells provide.. In order to produce enamel biomimetically, knowledge of the detailed mechanisms of amelogenesis are needed and would require cell lines with reproducible, predictable and physiologically-relevant properties. Addressing the lack of appropriate cell lines from presecretory to maturation stages would allow examination of essential molecular processes- such as ion and ...

Objective: To observe the effect of fluoride overdose on the proliferation of the pure Wistar rats incisor ameloblasts. Material and Methods: Twenty healthy Wistar rats were randomly divided into 2 groups, Group I (the control) and Group II (receiving 50 mg/L F-). After 8 weeks treatment the AgNORs stain and TUNEL technique were used to analyze the effect of fluoride on the proliferation and apoptosis of ameloblasts. Results: Incremental lines in the incisors in Group II were clearly visible and eosinophilic granules had accumulated in the ameloblasts in the secretory stage. The number of AgNORs granules in the ameloblasts in the pre-secretory stage in Group II was lower than in Group I, and the difference was statistically relevant (p < 0.001); more ameloblasts experienced apoptosis or migrated in the secretory stage. Conclusion: Fluoride overdose can inhibit proliferation of the ameloblasts and accelerate their apoptosis, which is what is meant by fluorosis. ...

Mice carrying a Y64H amelogenin mutation phenotypically mimic human amelogenesis imperfecta. Affected ameloblasts are characterised by the presence of abnormal cytoplasmic vesicles of retained amelogenin. Protein-protein binding studies using recombinant wild type and Y64H amelogenin revealed that the mutation increased amelogenin-amelogenin binding. This may drive intracellular aggregation of Y64H amelogenin, explaining the abnormal retention. Intracellular protein aggregation causes ER stress which triggers the UPR. The UPR attempts to restore proteostasis but as a last resort triggers apoptosis. SEM of affected enamel showed initially secreted enamel is normal; coincident with UPR in pro-survival mode. The final outer enamel is abnormal; indicative of UPR induced ameloblast apoptosis. Q-RT-PCR was used to measure ER stress related gene expression in affected ameloblasts. Expression levels of ER stress genes increased but not significantly (significance was reached in later studies by others ...
Heritable dental developmental anomalies include amelogenesis imperfecta (AI), dentinogenesis imperfecta (DI), and dentin dysplasia (DD). AI, also called congenital enamel hypoplasia, is an inherited defect of dental enamel formation. The teeth are small, discolored, pitted or grooved, and prone to rapid wear and breakage. It affects all or nearly all of the teeth in both the primary and permanent dentitions. DI is a hereditary disorder of dentin formation. It is characterized by blue-gray or amber brown and opalescent teeth, bulbous shaped crowns, narrow roots, and small or obliterated root canals. Both primary and secondary teeth are affected. DI is an entity clearly distinct from osteogenesis imperfecta. DD represents another inherited disorder of den-tin formation. Typically, the primary teeth appear opalescent, but secondary teeth are normally colored. The roots of the teeth are of normal shape and morphology. The pulp chambers of the secondary teeth are thistle-shaped. Most teeth show ...
Amelogenesis imperfecta, type IV (AI4; MIM 104510) and trichodentoosseus syndrome (TDO; MIM 190320) are related disorders characterized by enamel hypoplasia and taurodontism. Tooth abnormalities are the only clinical features seen in individuals with AI4, while individuals with TDO also have hair, nail, and bone abnormalities. The additional findings seen in TDO may include dolichocephaly, kinky or curly hair, brittle nails, and a mild to moderate increase in bone density of the skull, spine and long bones. AI4 and TDO are autosomal dominant disorders caused by mutations in the DLX3 gene. DLX3 encodes the distal-less homeobox 3 protein, a transcription factor involved in regulation of gene expression during the development of various tissues.. Read less ...
BACKGROUND: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is one of the most common causes of major birth defects in humans. Of the approximately 8400 children born each year in the U.S. with CMV-induced birth defects, more than 1/3 of these children exhibit hypoplasia and hypocalcification of tooth enamel. ❧ OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to initiate the investigation of the pathogenesis of CMV-induced tooth defects and examine the effects of CMV infection on progressive tooth differentiation and amelogenesis. ❧ METHODS: Mouse Cap and Bell stage mandibular first molars were infected with mouse CMV (mCMV) in vitro in a chemically-defined organ culture system and analyzed utilizing histological and immunolocalization methodologies. ❧ RESULTS: CMV infection of embryonic mouse mandibular first molars in vitro induces tooth dysmorphogenesis and enamel defects in a developmental stage- and duration-dependent manner. Initial protein localization studies suggest that the pathogenesis is mediated through NF-κB signaling ...

The human body is made up of many different kinds of tissues, which are composed of different kinds of cells. The ectoderm is what skin, hair, brain, nerve, and sensory organ cells come from. The endoderm forms the basis for the lungs surface (mucus membranes), the bladder, and intestinal tract, as well as mammary glands, the liver, and the pancreas. Tumours that grow out of these tissues are called carcinomas.. The mesoderm is the basis for support and movement structures, such as bones and muscle, as well as soft tissue, and blood and lymph vessels. When these types of tissues are fully mature, they are called mesenchymal tissues. Almost all malignant tumours that develop in mesenchymal tissues are called sarcomas.. ...

At my first appointment with Dr Check, he did a "smear" of my cervical cells to see if the progesterone in my body had converted the cells. My cells were so highly estrogenized, and not at all progesteronized, that he suspected I had not ovulated yet. I KNEW my period was coming the next day. He said, "If thats so, then your body is WAY off." Sure enough, my period came the next day. Additionally, an ultrasound at this same appointment revealed that my uterine lining (endometrium) was still a triple-stripe proliferative stage lining. It had not converted to the secretory stage lining. I saw it myself, and was very confused. I thought, well, maybe because its the first cycle after surgery and my body is just off ...

Cells of the inner enamel epithelium located adjacent to the dental papilla mesenchymal cells, differentiate into early ameloblasts during the bell stage. Early ameloblasts differentiate into mature cells through pre-secretory and secretory stages. During the pre-secretory stage, the early ameloblasts differentiate and initiate synthesis of the enamel-related proteins. In the secretory stage, the matrix proteins accumulate extracellularly and the tooth crown is formed ...

Loss-of-function mutations in the Ca(2+) release-activated Ca(2+) channel genes ORAI1 and STIM1 abolish store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE) and result in ectodermal dysplasia with amelogenesis imperfecta. However, because of the limited availability of patient tissue, analyses of enamel mineralization or possible changes in ameloblast function or morphology have not been possible. Here, we generated mice with ectodermal tissue-specific deletion of Stim1 ( Stim1 cKO [conditional knockout]), Stim2 ( Stim2 cKO), and Stim1 and Stim2 ( Stim1/2 cKO) and analyzed their enamel phenotypes as compared with those of control ( Stim1/2(fl/fl)) animals.

Tooth enamel formation. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a freeze-fractured section through a tooth, showing the enamel-forming cell layer (green). This epithelium comprises a single layer of columnar cells called ameloblasts. The fracture plane passes up into the tooth from the enamel surface (orange, bottom left). The ameloblast layer has detached from the enamel in which it is normally embedded. Enamel is a hard ceramic layer that covers and protects the teeth. The other end of the ameloblasts originate in the internal tooth tissue (brown, across top). Magnification unknown. - Stock Image P486/0080
When you are building an oral health treatment plan, one of the best things that you can do is to take steps to preserve as much of your existing health dental structure as possible. Because dental enamel is designed to be strong and resistant to damage, the more that you can do to preserve dental enamel the better it is for your smile.. Today our OFallon dentists are sharing some more information about enamel; we hope that this empowers you to care for your teeth!. Dental enamel is the outermost layer of your smile. Every tooth is actually comprised of multiple layers: the dental enamel, the dentin, and then finally the dental pulp. Of these three layers the dental enamel is the least porous and the most durable.. Additionally, dental enamel does not have nerves in it. This is what allows you to chew and drink your favorite beverages without experiencing pain and sensitivity.. In order to maintain strong and healthy dental enamel, you want to make sure that you are drinking plenty of water, ...
Previously, we have shown that serine-16 phosphorylation in native full-length porcine amelogenin (P173) and the Leucine-Rich Amelogenin Peptide (LRAP(+P)), an alternative amelogenin splice product, affects protein assembly and mineralization in vitro. Notably, P173 and LRAP(+P) stabilize amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) and inhibit hydroxyapatite (HA) formation, while non-phosphorylated counterparts (rP172, LRAP(−P)) guide the growth of ordered bundles of HA crystals. Based on these findings, we hypothesize that the phosphorylation of full-length amelogenin and LRAP induces conformational changes that critically affect its capacity to interact with forming calcium phosphate mineral phases. To test this hypothesis, we have utilized Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) to determine the secondary structure of LRAP(−P) and LRAP(+P) in the absence/presence of calcium and selected mineral phases relevant to amelogenesis; i.e., hydroxyapatite (HA: an enamel crystal prototype) and (ACP: an
The experiments reported here were undertaken primarily to investigate further the histological changes occurring in the enamel organ of the rats incisor tooth during vitamin E deficiency. These changes were originally described by Irving (1942) and have been confirmed in general by Granados, Mason & Dam (1945, 1946) and by Pindborg (7950, 1952). It was, however, found by the present writers, usinga diet based on that of Gillman, Gilbert, Gillman & Spence (1952), that extreme changes in the enamel organ, avertable by vitamin E, could be produced in 21 days or less, whereas the changes described by the other authors took much longer to develop and were less extensive. In an attempt to determine further the effects of other dietary factors upon the enamel organ, certain additional findings seemed to be of significance. The present paper is concerned chiefly with these, and an account of the histological aspect is being prepared for publication. In particular it was found that the vitamin content ...
The identification that amelogenin binds to CD63 [11] and LAMP1 [16] led us to hypothesize that amelogenin may be rapidly taken up by the ameloblast cell through receptor-mediated endocytosis [19]. The detailed characterization of the binding regions in amelogenin, CD63 and LAMP1 by the Y2H assay reveals that the region (P155LSPILPELPLEAW168) of amelogenin M180 is responsible for the interaction with CD63 through the domain specified by amino acids 165-205, LAMP1 through the domain specified by amino acids 226-251 and LAMP2 through the domain specified by amino acids 227-259. The binding region (residues 155-168) of amelogenin is hydrophobic, and is predicted to be largely disordered and accessible to the external environment. The region defined by amino acids 165-205 of CD63 is likely to be in a 7 shape within the mushroom-like structure of CD63 EC2.. All of the data presented in Table 2 were derived from the Y2H assays. No significant ambiguity clouded our interpretation, as smaller regions ...

A new era of drug discovery and development is being marched with the concept of personalized medicine . Organ-on-a-chips or OCs are one of the movements, which are to recapitulate 3-dimensional organ models in microfluidic culture platforms. By combining iPSC-derived human organ cells, individuals physiological response can be investigated so that the needs of animal model, inadequately representing human physiology, will be vanished in drug development in a near future. Herein,we are challenging the development of liver-, heart-, and brain-on-a-chip for the organs most frequently facing drug failure issues in the current market. Also we envision to expand the types of OCs to muscle, gut and lung, in order to ultimately represent physiological response of human on a chip. Based on personalized iPSC-derived cells, investigations on individual OCs as well as interconnection between OCs will bring meaningful inquiries in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in personalized medicine ...
The pool sizes of purine nucleotides, nucleosides, and nucleobases were measured in the host tissues liver, skeletal muscle, and blood of Ehrlich ascites tumor-bearing mice during the different periods of tumor growth. There were large differences of tissue concentrations of these metabolites between control animals, animals in the logarithmic growth period of the Ehrlich ascites tumor, and animals in the resting phase of tumor growth. The ATP concentrations in liver, muscle, and erythrocytes were higher during the proliferating phase of the tumor compared with the ATP levels of these organs in healthy animals. In liver and skeletal muscle the ATP concentration decreased during the transition from proliferating into resting phase of tumor growth. The concentrations of nucleosides and nucleobases within the RBC and blood plasma decreased during the logarithmic growth phase but restored during the plateau period. As well as in the organs/cells investigated and in the body fluids (plasma, ascites ...

The importance of NK cells for eradicating cancer cannot be overemphasized. Several studies have reported that the tumor environment impairs the development and function of NK cells (13, 15) and even diminishes the number of NK cells in patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia (14). In this study, we determined that NK cells at a specific maturation stage were converted into immunosuppressive MDSCs, a process that was impeded by IL-2 in vitro and in vivo. The inverse relationship between the percentage of Ly6Cneg/low cells and MDSCs provided us a clue as to which NK-phenotype cells might be converted into MDSCs. This observation led us to investigate the conversion of NKp46+/NK1.1+ cells and the Lin−CD122+ conventional NK cells. It has been reported that the expression of NKp46 is restricted to NK cells and is induced in a number of minor T-cell populations, whereas myeloid cells, such as DCs, neutrophils, and macrophages, do not express NKp46 (29), indicating that the conversion showed in ...

The transcription factor Ctip2/Bcl11b plays essential roles in developmental processes of the immune and central nervous systems and skin. Here we show that Ctip2 also plays a key role in tooth development. Ctip2 is highly expressed in the ectodermal components of the developing tooth, including inner and outer enamel epithelia, stellate reticulum, stratum intermedium, and the ameloblast cell lineage. In Ctip2−/− mice, tooth morphogenesis appeared to proceed normally through the cap stage but developed multiple defects at the bell stage. Mutant incisors and molars were reduced in size and exhibited hypoplasticity of the stellate reticulum. An ameloblast-like cell population developed ectopically on the lingual aspect of mutant lower incisors, and the morphology, polarization, and adhesion properties of ameloblasts on the labial side of these teeth were severely disrupted. Perturbations of gene expression were also observed in the mandible of Ctip2−/− mice: expression of the ameloblast ...
Semen liquefaction changes semen from a gel-like to watery consistency and is required for sperm to gain mobility and swim to the fertilization site in the Fallopian tubes. Kallikrein-related peptidases 3 (KLK3) and other kallikrein-related peptidases from male prostate glands are responsible for semen liquefaction by cleaving gel-forming proteins (semenogelin and collagen). In a physiological context, the liquefaction process occurs within the female reproductive tract. How seminal proteins interact with the female reproductive environment is still largely unexplored. We previously reported that conditional genetic ablation of Esr1 (estrogen receptor α) in the epithelial cells of the female reproductive tract (Wnt7aCre/+;Esr1f/f) causes female infertility, partly due to a drastic reduction in the number of motile sperm entering the oviduct. In this study, we found that post-ejaculated semen from fertile wild-type males was solidified and the sperm were entrapped in Wnt7aCre/+;Esr1f/f uteri, ...
Poor development of both milk and permanent teeth may be associated with poor oral hygiene,when the teeth are attacked by caries, and their further development and growth may be severely damaged. If the diet (or toothpaste) man get enough calcium and fluoride, and generally all substances that tooth for their development needs, the development of tooth again altered. Poor development can result from the failure of embryonic foundations teeth, tooth not develop at all -aplasie or insufficiently -hypoplasie may be in a different place than it should be, is rotated or tilted. Hereditary disease which mainly reflects the poor development of teeth is amelogenesis imperfect. A specific problem may be defective teeth in the context of congenital syphilis - barrel-shaped teeth. Such diseases are numerous. Above all, regular visits to the dentist who reveal any pathological changes.

Fibrocartilage is exactly what the name implies, mostly fibers. Unlike hyaline cartilages uniform structure, the fibers in this type of cartilage are more open and have a spongy-like architecture. This makes them perfect for shock absorption. As such, you can find them between your vertebrae, and in the joints of your knee, shoulders, and mandible.. All types of cartilage grow in one of two ways; interstitial, and appositional. Interstitial growth happens when cartilage is formed by chondrocytes within the cartilage, forming additional matrix. Appositional growth happens by adding new cartilage on the surface. This is formed from chondrocytes in a dense layer of connective tissue surrounding the cartilage, called the perichondrium.. The question then becomes: does this interstitial and appositional growth, cause the mass of our cartilage, and its size, to increase as we age? The result being bigger ears and noses. The answer is no. Studies have shown the numbers of cells present in our ...
Tumor suppressor p53 launches miR-200c to reverse epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition. MD Anderson News Release 02/25/11. Like a bounty hunter returning escapees to custody, a cancer-fighting gene converts organ cells that change into highly mobile stem cells back to their original, stationary state, researchers report online at Nature Cell Biology.. This newly discovered activity of the p53 gene offers a potential avenue of attack on breast cancer stem cells thought to play a central role in progression and spread of the disease, according to scientists at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.. Long known for monitoring DNA damage and forcing defective cells to kill themselves, p53 also activates bits of RNA that block two proteins, the researchers found. This prevents conversion of epithelial-differentiated cells, which line or cover an organ, into cells that resemble mesenchymal stem cells when stimulated by the TGF-B(beta) growth factor.. Mesenchymal cells are mobile adult stem ...

Herein, we continue our efforts by characterizing three novel members of the canine family, i.e. Klk11-13, and investigating their expression in mammary cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and DNA sequencing were used for investigating the expression and determining the nucleotide sequence of all transcripts identified, respectively. RESULTS It was demonstrated that (i) unlike other Klks, (CANFA)Klk12 probably possesses a non-AUG translation initiation codon, (ii) all three Klks undergo alternative splicing, with exon 2 and 3 concurrent elimination serving as the most prominent event, (iii) all transcripts identified were detected in both tumor and normal tissues, yet with different frequencies. CONCLUSION Having

Chronic fluoride over-exposure during pre-eruptive enamel development can cause dental fluorosis. Severe dental fluorosis is characterized by porous, soft enamel that is vulnerable to erosion and decay. The prevalence of dental fluorosis among the population in the USA, India and China is increasing. Other than avoiding excessive intake, treatments to prevent dental fluorosis remain unknown. We previously reported that high-dose fluoride induces endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and oxidative stress in ameloblasts. Cell stress induces gene repression, mitochondrial damage and apoptosis. An aromatic fatty acid, 4-phenylbutyrate (4PBA) is a chemical chaperone that interacts with misfolded proteins to prevent ER stress. We hypothesized that 4PBA ameliorates fluoride-induced ER stress in ameloblasts. To determine whether 4PBA protects ameloblasts from fluoride toxicity, we analyzed gene expression of Tgf-β1, Bcl2/Bax ratio and cytochrome-c release in vitro. In vivo, we measured fluorosis levels, enamel
We have used synchrotron x-ray diffraction to study the crystal orientation in human dental enamel as a function of position within intact tooth sections. Keeping tooth sections intact has allowed us to construct 2D and 3D spatial distribution maps of the magnitude and orientation of texture in dental enamel. We have found that the enamel crystallites are most highly aligned at the expected occlusal points for a maxillary first premolar, and that the texture direction varies spatially in a three dimensional curling arrangement. Our results provide a model for texture in enamel which can aid researchers in developing dental composite materials for fillings and crowns with optimal characteristics for longevity, and will guide clinicians to the best method for drilling into enamel, in order to minimize weakening of remaining tooth structure, during dental restoration procedures. ...
Detail of the period when the root sheath cells (blue) secrete enamel matrix proteins. Following formation of the protein matrix on the surface of the mineralizing dentin, cementoblasts (Red) start producing cementum (Light blue) which anchors collagen fibers.. The Next Generation. In the mid 1980s, a revolutionary breakthrough in the basic biology of tooth development took place at the Karolinska Institutes department of Oral Pathology in Stockholm. The discovery revealed a native complex of enamel matrix proteins and the key if not crucial , role they play in the development of tooth-supporting tissues. These enamel related proteins mediate the formation of acellular cementum on the root of the developing tooth, providing a foundation for all of the necessary tissues associated with a functional periodontal attachment.. This groundbreaking discovery has fueled the development of a new generation in periodontal therapy, and makes the recreation of lost tooth support an attainable goal in the ...

A team of researchers led by Rodrigo Lacruz, MSc, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Basic Science and Craniofacial Biology at NYU College of Dentistry, has published a paper in Scientific Reports (5:15803) titled "Dental enamel cells express functional SOCE channels," which reports the results of a study showing for the first time the mechanism of calcium transport essential in the formation of dental enamel. The team found that the main calcium influx pathway involved in the mineralization of enamel [called the CRAC (Ca2+ release-activated Ca2+) channel - the main type of SOCE (Store-operated Ca2+ entry) channel - is critical for controlling calcium uptake, which is necessary for the development of tooth enamel. Despite calciums central role in the development of enamel, it was not previously understood how it was transported from the bloodstream to the zone where enamel crystals grow. The finding has important implications for people who suffer from abnormal tooth enamel due to ...
Fibers. The fibrillar component of hyaline cartilage consists of a few strands of Type II collagen. Type II fibers (10 to 20 nm diameter) and unbanded. You wont be able to make them out, so dont bother to try. The matrix fills the spaces in the meshwork of Type II fibers.. "Appositional" and "Interstitial" Growth Patterns In Cartilage. An increase in the overall size, or a change in shape of a cartilaginous structure obviously has to happen somehow. Since hyaline cartilage forms the model for the bones of an developing embryo, as the embryo grows in size and develops new parts, the skeletal model has to keep pace with it. This process of growth and reshaping occurs in two ways: interstitial growth and appositional growth.. The only significant difference in the two processes is where they occur. Appositional growth takes place "at the edge" of the cartilage mass (i.e., between the cartilage proper and the surrounding perichondrium), and interstitial growth occurs "in the middle" of the mass of ...

So, how do babys teeth grow ? The baby teeth actually starts growing during the 6th week in the mothers uterus. These baby teeth growth starts with the Bell shape tooth germ. This Bell shape structure seen is actually the enamel organ, which will eventually grow into a baby teeth. As you can see the enamel organ or tooth germ contains numerous cells. These cells will continue to grow and differentiate into different and more advance cells to form the tooth. The outer and inner enamel organ eventually forms the outer casing of the tooth called the enamel layer. Where else the dental papilla cells will form the inner section of the tooth known as the pulp chamber. The permanent tooth bud will continue to grow into the permanent teeth after the baby tooth eruption is completed in the mouth.. ...

Other symptoms affecting vision may include night vision difficulties; optic disc pallor; narrow vessels; macular atrophy with pigment mottling; peripheral deep white dot deposits or retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) alterations in the inferonasal retina; decreased foveal and retinal thickness; attenuation of retinal lamination; hyperreflectivity in the choroids (due to RPE and choriocapillaris atrophy); impairment of color vision; and progressive loss of vision with advancing age. In line with ameleogenesis imperfecta, affected members may display teeth yellow-brown in colour, dysplastic, presenting numerous ...
VIBRATION RESISTANT MATERIALS BEING DESIGNED TO MIMIC TOOTH ENAMEL dentist Albuquerque. University of Michigan research on building materials that can withstand vibration and stress came up with a perfect model: tooth enamel.. Soft materials absorb stress and vibration very well, but cannot be used to make structures like airplane fuselages and computer motherboards. Rigid materials like steel and titanium are very strong, but vibration and stress over long periods of time can cause failure of the material.. In studying animal structures that hold up for decades under vibration and/or stress, the ideal material appeared to be tooth enamel. Many organs and tissues in vertebrate bodies have evolved over millennia to try to improve on performance. Tooth enamel, however has remained unchanged in a wide variety of animals over eons because the design has worked out so well.. Enamel is made of ceramic crystal columns bonded together with an organic matrix, set up in a hard protective covering. This ...

If you want to destroy your tooth and cause excruciating pain, then having a cavity is the way to go. But of course, no one in his or her right mind would wish to have cavities. However, the best way that you can prevent yourself from getting something is by knowing exactly how you can get it to begin with.. How do cavities develop?. The enamel layer of your teeth may be rock hard, but its not made of steel. For this reason, it can dissolve over time when it is exposed to acidic substances. The acids can be generated from the action of oral bacteria which then utilizes sugars left inside your mouth. This leads to the production of acids as a by-product of metabolism. The acid is then what causes enamel erosion and eventual tooth decay.. How can you keep yourself from developing cavities?. Brush regularly.. Brushing would get rid of dental debris, which is utilized by the bacteria inside your mouth and turned into acids. Essentially, the longer you wait till you brush, the more of the dental ...

  • Using a transgenic animal approach we have extended dentin sialoprotein or dentin phosphoprotein expression throughout the developmental stages of amelogenesis. (nih.gov)
  • The objectives of this concept are to 1) generate new or improved models for the study of amelogenesis that accurately reflect the developmental stage or physiological process they are intended to represent, and 2) validate those models to ensure they are robust and reproducible. (nih.gov)
  • Dentin sialoprotein and dentin phosphoprotein overexpression during amelogenesis. (nih.gov)
  • Because of this expression profile it appears that dentin sialophosphoprotein contributes to the early events of amelogenesis, and in particular to those events that result in the formation of the dentino-enamel junction and the adjacent "aprismatic" enamel. (nih.gov)
  • Many studies have indicated that various factors are involved in the formation of dentin and enamel during tooth development ( 16 - 26 ), although there has been no report on the role of GEP in odontogenesis and amelogenesis. (ijbs.com)
  • In most cases, males with an X-linked form of this condition experience more severe dental abnormalities than affected females.Recent genetic studies suggest that the cause of a significant proportion of amelogenesis imperfecta cases remains to be discovered. (wikipedia.org)
  • Amelogenesis imperfecta is an inherited defect of dental enamel formation that shows both clinical and genetic heterogeneity. (nih.gov)
  • In most cases, males with X-linked amelogenesis imperfecta experience more severe dental abnormalities than females with this form of this condition. (nih.gov)
  • El crecimiento exofitico de esmalte sobre las superficies de la corona dental se ha definido como tuberculo y parece ser que cuentan con centros secundarios de senalizacion independientes--nudos de esmalte secundarios--constituidos por un grupo de celulas epiteliales que no se diferencian a ameloblastos y que regulan la amelogenesis y la conformacion de cuspides individuales de forma tardia. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Enamel formation occurs through the process of amelogenesis, during which ameloblast cells form and secrete the extracellular matrix which eventually matures into the outer hydroxyapatite layer of the tooth. (nih.gov)
