• enamel
  • Fish scales are a surprisingly nutritional food source, containing layers of keratin and enamel, as well as a dermal portion and a layer of protein-rich mucus. (wikipedia.org)
  • The high salivary concentrations of calcium and phosphate which are maintained by salivary proteins may account for the development and remineralisation of enamel. (wikipedia.org)
  • wherein
  • 1 . A self-setting, porous calcium phosphate composition comprising a calcium phosphate, an effervescent agent, and a biocompatible cohesiveness agent admixed with a physiologically acceptable fluid, wherein release of a gaseous component of said effervescent agent occurs upon hydration of said composition and produces at least 5% porosity in said composition, and wherein, after hardening, said calcium phosphate composition has a compressive strength of 1 MPa or greater. (google.es)
  • 5 . The composition of claim 1 , wherein said calcium phosphate has an average crystalline domain size of less than 100 nm. (google.es)
  • 4. The method according to claim 1, wherein said dry component further comprises an additional calcium source. (google.com)
  • Alkaline
  • NPP's promiscuity enables the enzyme to share substrates with alkaline phosphatase (AP), another member of the alkaline phosphate superfamily. (wikipedia.org)
  • Alkaline phosphatase primarily hydrolyzes phosphate monoester bonds, but interestingly it shows some promiscuity towards hydrolyzing phosphate diester bonds, making it a sort of opposite to NPP. (wikipedia.org)
  • occurs
  • It occurs widely as an accessory mineral in igneous rocks and in calcium rich metamorphic rocks. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, the disease occurs among older toddlers and children in these countries, which in these circumstances is attributed to low dietary calcium intakes due to a mainly cereal-based diet. (wikipedia.org)
  • enzyme
  • Although NPP primarily catalyzes phosphodiester hydrolysis, the enzyme will also catalyze the hydrolysis of phosphate monoesters, though to a much smaller extent. (wikipedia.org)
  • mainly calcium
  • citation needed] It facilitates bone's main functions: to support the whole body, protect organs, provide levers for movement, and store and release chemical elements, mainly calcium. (wikipedia.org)
  • levels
  • Sialolithiasis may also develop because of the presence of existing chronic infection of the glands, dehydration (e.g. use of phenothiazines), Sjögren's syndrome and/or increased local levels of calcium, but in many instances the cause is idiopathic (unknown). (wikipedia.org)
  • Low phosphate levels are an important limit to growth in some aquatic systems. (wikipedia.org)
  • deposits
  • National Kidney Foundation of Malaysia as well as calcium deposits in blood vessels and organs in the body. (imiedu.in)
  • Phosphate mines contain fossils, especially marine fossils, because phosphate is present in the fossilized deposits of animal remains and excreta. (wikipedia.org)
