An innovative developmental biology study relates amelotin with tooth enamel defects and enamel formation. “This is a significant study because it is the first report of a basement membrane protein playing a role in enamel mineralization,” said one researcher. “Through the creation of Amtn knock out mice in the Ganss lab, we learn the unique role of AMTN protein in the proper hardening of enamel.”
