Ameloblastin Inhibits Cranial Suture Closure by Modulating Msx2 Expression and Proliferation
(PLoS One, 2013-04)
Deformities of cranial sutures such as craniosynostosis and enlarged parietal foramina greatly impact human development and quality of life. Here we have examined the role of the extracellular matrix protein ameloblastin ...
Ameloblastin Modulates Osteoclastogenesis through the Integrin/ERK Pathway
Proteins of the extracellular matrix often have multiple functions to facilitate complex tasks ranging from signaling to structural support. Here we have focused on the function of one of the matrix proteins expressed in ...
Enamel-Related Gene Products in Calvarial Development
(Sage Publications, 2013-07)
Enamel-related gene products (ERPs) are detected in non-enamel tissues such as bone. We hypothesized that if functional, ERP expression corresponds with distinct events during osteoblast differentiation and affects bone ...
