    J Biol Chem 278:20293-302. 2003
    ..Upon secretion of amelogenin, K5 pairs with K14. Pairing of K5 and K14 commences on day 3 and ends on day 9. The pairing of K5 and K14 marks the end of secretion of amelogenin...

    Hanumanth H Ravindranath
    Center for Craniofacial Molecular Biology, University of Southern California, 2250 Alcazar Street, Los Angeles, CA 90033, USA
    Biochem Biophys Res Commun 323:1075-83. 2004
    ..Dosimetry and Scatchard analyses showed the specific interaction between ATMP and ameloblastin, suggesting that amelogenin may interact with ameloblastin to form a heteromolecular assembly...

    Center for Craniofacial Molecular Biology, School of Dentistry, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA 90033, USA
    Acta Histochem 107:43-56. 2005
    ..We suggest that sulfated sialic acids are part of the KSs. The sulfated glycoconjugates are also found in dentin and the DEJ but not in predentin suggesting that amelogenin binds to the sialoconjugate during enamel formation...

    Rajeswari M H Ravindranath
    Center for Craniofacial Molecular Biology, School of Dentistry, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA 90033, USA
    Arch Oral Biol 52:1161-71. 2007
    ..Presence of amelogenin-trityrosyl-motif peptide (ATMP) distinguishes TRAP from LRAP. The roles of these polypeptides in the formation of enamel remain to be elucidated...

    Rajeswari M H Ravindranath
    Center for Craniofacial Molecular Biology, School of Dentistry, University of Southern California Los Angeles, California 90033, USA
    J Biol Chem 282:36370-6. 2007
    ..These observations suggest that the 37-kDa isoform interacts with amelogenin during early tooth development...

  1. LECTIN-LIKE PROPERTIES OF AMELOGENINS
    RAJESWARI RAVINDRANATH; Fiscal Year: 2004
    ..These experiments are a logical extension of the newly identified lectin-like properties of amelogenins (Ravindranath et al. Submitted), which are postulated to play a functional role in normal enamel biomineralization. ..
