AMELX Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 198 amino acids (17-191 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 22kDa.AMELX is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Amelogenin, X-Linked (AMELX) belongs to the amelogenin family of extracellular matrix proteins. Amelogenins have a role biomineralization during tooth enamel development. AMELX gene mutations cause X-linked amelogenesis imperfecta. AMELX regulates the formation of crystallites during the secretory stage of tooth enamel development. AMELX is transiently but amply expressed by ameloblasts during tooth development. Amelogenin is the principal protein in developing dental enamel.
