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)

Atherosclerosis Is the hardening and narrowing of the arteries. It is caused by the slow buildup of plaque inside the artery walls. Arteries are blood vessels that carry oxygen-rich blood from the heart to other parts of the body. Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. As it grows, the buildup of plaque narrows the inside of the artery and, in time, may restrict blood flow. There are two types of plaque: hard and stable or soft and unstable. Hard plaque causes artery walls to thicken and harden. Soft plaque is more likely to break apart from the walls and enter the bloodstream. This can cause a blood clot that can partially or totally block the flow of blood in the artery. When this happens, the organ supplied by the blocked artery starves for blood and oxygen. The organs cells may either die or suffer severe damage. Atherosclerosis is a slow, progressive disease that may start in childhood. It can affect the arteries of the brain, heart, ...

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 (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 ...
Mutations in human and/or mouse homologs are associated with this disease. Synonyms: AI2A4; amelogenesis imperfecta hypomaturation type IIA4; amelogenesis imperfecta type IIA4
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).
Amelogenesis imperfecta is a group of rare genetic conditions in which the outer layer of the teeth (enamel) fails to develop properly.

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 ...

Amelotin (AMTN) is an ameloblast-secreted protein that belongs to the secretory calcium-binding phosphoprotein (SCPP) family, which originated in early vertebrates. In rodents, AMTN is expressed during the maturation stage of amelogenesis only. This expression pattern strongly differs from the spatiotemporal expression of other ameloblast-secreted SCPPs, such as the enamel matrix proteins (EMPs). Furthermore, AMTN was characterized in rodents only. In this study, we applied various approaches, including in silico screening of databases, PCRs and transcriptome sequencing to characterize AMTN sequences in sauropsids and amphibians, and compared them to available mammalian and coelacanth sequences. We showed that (i) AMTN is tooth (enamel) specific and underwent pseudogenization in toothless turtles and birds, and (ii) the AMTN structure changed during tetrapod evolution. To infer AMTN function, we studied spatiotemporal expression of AMTN during amelogenesis in a salamander and a lizard, and compared the

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. ...

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 ...
Author(s): Katsura, Kaitlin A | Advisor(s): Den Besten, Pamela | Abstract: Amelogenesis Imperfecta (AI) is a clinical diagnosis that encompasses a group of genetic mutations, each affecting processes involved in tooth enamel formation and thus, result in various enamel defects. The hypomaturation enamel phenotype has been described for mutations involved in the later stage of enamel formation, including Klk4, Mmp20, C4orf26, and Wdr72. Using a candidate gene approach we discovered a novel Wdr72 human mutation, resulting in a hypomaturation AI phenotype, to be a 5-base pair deletion (c.806_810delGGCAG; p.G255VfsX294). To gain insight into the function of WDR72, we used computer modeling of the full-length human WDR72 protein structure and found that the predicted N-terminal sequence forms two beta-propeller folds with an alpha-solenoid tail at the C-terminus. This domain iteration is characteristic of vesicle coat proteins, such as beta′-COP, suggesting a role for WDR72 in the formation of membrane

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 ...

Logistiline regressioon saab olla nii binaarne, järjestatud või multinomiaalne. Binoomse või binaarse logistilise regressiooni puhul uuritakse olukorda, kus uuritaval tunnusel on kaks võimalikku väärtust: 0 ja 1. Multinominaalse regressiooni puhul on tegemist olukorraga, kus väljundiks on 3 või rohkem sõltumatut väärtust ning väärtustel puudub järjestus. Järjestatud logistilise regressiooni korral uuritakse tunnust, millel on mitu sõltuvat taset ning tasemed on järjestatud. Logit-mudel on kõige enam kasutatud meetod binaarse tunnuse modelleerimiseks.

Enamel is the hardest tissue with the highest degree of mineralization protecting the dental pulp from injury in vertebrates. The ameloblasts differentiated from ectoderm-derived epithelial cells are a single cell layer and are important for the enamel formation and mineralization. Wnt/β-catenin signaling has been proven to exert an important role in the mineralization of bone, dentin and cementum. Little was known about the regulatory mechanism of Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway in ameloblasts during amelogenesis, especially in the mineralization of enamel. To investigate the role of β-catenin in ameloblasts, we established Amelx-Cre; β-catenin∆ex3fl/fl (CA-β-catenin) mice, which could constitutive activate β-catenin in ameloblasts. It showed the delayed mineralization and eventual hypomineralization in the incisor enamel of CA-β-catenin mice. Meanwhile, the amelogenesis-related proteinases Mmp20 and Klk4 were decreased in the incisors of CA-β-catenin mice. These data indicated that ...
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.

Researchers identify a molecular mechanism that controls the precise patterning of enamel formation on incisor teeth. Mouse incisors are covered with enamel on the side closest to the lip while the other side remains enamel-free. This irregular distribution of enamel helps keep the cutting edges of the incisors very sharp. While it is well established that ameloblasts secrete enamel, the molecular signals regulating asymmetric ameloblast differentiation from the underlying dental epithelium are not well understood.

Effectss of EMDs on the epithelial tissue. Two surveies by Gestrelius et Al ( 1997b ) and Kawase et Al. ( 2000 ) examined the proliferation of unwritten epithelial cells utilizing in vitro rat lingua epithelial cells and in vivo trials severally. Both concluded that EMDs did non heighten proliferation of epithelial cells ; instead they arrested the growing of the cells, by maintaining them locked on the G1 stage of the mitotic rhythm. There has been grounds that the TGF-i?? may be the factor that causes this suppression. ( Bosshardt 2008 ). However, it has been witnessed by Rincon et Al. ( 2005 ) , that EMD significantly increases DNA synthesis from a specialized epithelial cell type called the Remainders of Malassez. These are the remnant cells of what originally used to be portion of the HERS during development that have since migrated into the periodontic infinite. Their map remains mostly unknown, nevertheless it has been proposed that their map may be. linked to regeneration, as they react ...

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
During imaginal development of Drosophila, Suppressor of Hairless [Su(H)], an evolutionarily conserved transcription factor that mediates intracellular signalling by the Notch (N) receptor, controls successive alternative cell fate decisions leading to the differentiation of multicellular sensory organs. We describe here the distribution of the Su(H) protein in the wing disc epithelium throughout development of adult sense organs. Su(H) was found to be evenly distributed in the nuclei of all imaginal disc cells during sensory organ precursor cells selection. Thus differential expression and/or subcellular localization of Su(H) is not essential for its function. Soon after division of the pIIa secondary precursor cell, Su(H) specifically accumulates in the nucleus of the future socket cell. At the onset of differentiation of the socket cell, Su(H) is also detected in the cytoplasm. In this differentiating cell, N and deltex participate in the cytoplasmic retention of Su(H). Still, Su(H) does not ...

This volume is the 1st in a series of Ebooks that bridges the gap between advances in science and clinical practice in odontology. Recent advances in biology, materials science and tissue engineering are increasingly viewed as being of enormous clinical potential. Stem cell research has opened up the possibility of reconstructing teeth from the association of epithelial and mesanchymal embryonic or adult cells, as an exciting alternative to metal implants. This Ebook will examine the multifunctional nature of a group of proteins known as the amelogenins. Latest studies indicate that this protein regulates the initiation and growth of hydroxyapatite crystals during the mineralization of enamel. In addition, amelogenins organize enamel rods during tooth development, and also aid in the development of cementum by directing cells that form the cementum to the root surface of the teeth. The aim of this book is to serve as a bridge between basic biology and biomaterial sciences, and to inform ...

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 ...

Põlismetsale iseloomulike tunnuste arenemine on seotud suktsessiooniga, mille viimase staadiumi saavutamine nõuab aega. Vanade puude akumulatsioon hakkab mõjutama puistu struktuuri. Vanemad puistud arendavad häilusid kahel põhjusel. Esiteks, dominantsed puud hakkavad surema loodusliku vananemisprotsessi tagajärjel, mis muudab puud patogeenidele ja kahjuritele vastuvõtlikumaks. Kui sellised vanad puud on koondunud, tekitab see küllaltki suuri häile[12]. Teiseks, mida vanem on puistu, seda enam on tõenäoline, et selle struktuuri on mõjutanud häiringud. Häiringud, nagu väiksemad põlengud ja tormid, üraskirüüsted, surmavad suuri vanu puid või nende gruppe.[13][14] Suurte puude suremise tulemusena kuhjub surnud puitu ja lagundavad seened satuvad ka elusatesse puudesse. Surnud ja surevad puud on põlismetsa iseloomulik tunnus ja need toetavad rikkalike toiduvõrgustike teket.

The syndrome is caused by mutations in the RPS6KA3 gene.[1] This gene is located on the short arm of the X chromosome (Xp22.2). The RPS6KA3 gene makes a protein that is involved with signaling within cells. Researchers believe that this protein helps control the activity of other genes and plays an important role in the brain. The protein is involved in cell signaling pathways that are required for learning, the formation of long-term memories, and the survival of nerve cells. The protein RSK2 which is encoded by the RPS6KA3 gene is a kinase which phosphorylates some substrates like CREB and histone H3. RSK2 is involved at the distal end of the Ras/MAPK signaling pathway. Mutations in the RPS6KA3 disturb the function of the protein, but it is unclear how a lack of this protein causes the signs and symptoms of Coffin-Lowry syndrome. At this time more than 120 mutations have been found.[2] Some people with the features of Coffin-Lowry syndrome do not have identified mutations in the RPS6KA3 gene. ...
The exact genetic nature of each particular case of KS/HH will determine which, if any, of the non-reproductive features will occur. The severity of the symptoms will also vary from case to case. Even family members will not show the same range or severity of symptoms.[2][5] KS/HH is most often present from birth but adult onset versions are found in both males and females. The hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis (HPG axis) functions normally at birth and well into adult life, giving normal puberty and normal reproductive function. The HPG axis then either fails totally or is reduced to a very low level of GnRH release in adult life with no obvious cause (e.g. a pituitary tumour). This will lead to a fall in testosterone or oestrogen levels and infertility.[13][16] Functional hypothalamic amenorrhoea is seen in females where the HPG axis is suppressed in response to physical or psychological stress or malnutrition but is reversible with the removal of the stressor.[1] Some cases of KS/HH appear ...
This test measures the changes in body weight, urine output, and urine composition when fluids are withheld to induce dehydration. The body's normal response to dehydration is to conserve water by concentrating the urine. Those with DI continue to urinate large amounts of dilute urine in spite of water deprivation. In primary polydipsia, the urine osmolality should increase and stabilize at above 280 Osm/kg with fluid restriction, while a stabilization at a lower level indicates diabetes insipidus.[10] Stabilization in this test means, more specifically, when the increase in urine osmolality is less than 30 Osm/kg per hour for at least three hours.[10] Sometimes measuring blood levels of ADH toward the end of this test is also necessary, but is more time consuming to perform.[10] To distinguish between the main forms, desmopressin stimulation is also used; desmopressin can be taken by injection, a nasal spray, or a tablet. While taking desmopressin, a patient should drink fluids or water only ...
In humans, inheritance of X-linked recessive traits follows a unique pattern made up of three points. -The first is that affected fathers cannot pass x-linked recessive traits to their sons because fathers give Y chromosomes to their sons. This means that males affected by an x-linked recessive disorder inherited the responsible X chromosome from their mothers. Second, x-linked recessive traits are more commonly expressed in males than females.[2] This is due to the fact that males possess only a single X chromosome, and therefore require only one mutated X in order to be affected. Women possess two X chromosomes, and thus must receive two of the mutated recessive X chromosomes (one from each parent). A popular example showing this pattern of inheritance is that of the descendants of Queen Victoria and the blood disease hemophilia.[3] -The last pattern seen is that x-linked recessive traits tend to skip generations, meaning an affected grandfather will not have an affected son, but could have an ...
... is a form of albinism which, in contrast to oculocutaneous albinism, presents primarily in the eyes.[1] There are multiple forms of ocular albinism, which are clinically similar.[2]:865.

... is inherited as an X-linked recessive trait. It occurs in males and in homozygous females (which is only possible in the daughters of a haemophilic male and a carrier or haemophiliac female[9]). However, mild haemophilia A is known to occur in heterozygous females due to X-inactivation, so it is recommended that levels of factor VIII and IX be measured in all known or potential carriers prior to surgery and in the event of clinically significant bleeding.[4][10] About 5-10% of people with haemophilia A are affected because they make a dysfunctional version of the factor VIII protein, while the remainder are affected because they produce factor VIII in insufficient amounts (quantitative deficiency).[10] Of those who have severe deficiency (defined as ,1% activity of factor VIII), 45-50% have the same mutation, an inversion within the factor VIII gene that results in total elimination of protein production.[10] Since both forms of haemophilia can be caused by a variety of different ...
