Disease relevance of Enam

  • These data were interpreted to suggest that the polyoma virus truncated the differentiation pathway for these odontogenic tissues at an early stage of their development and retained the expression of basement membrane components and the enamelin-like polypeptides, yet excluded expression of amelogenin gene products [1].
