Example text

The inorganic phase of this initial enamel matrix consists of small crystals of hydroxyapatite (HAp) and further crystal growth is observed during the maturation phase of amelogenesis. As a full thickness of enamel is secreted by the late secretory stage, changes become apparent in the first formed enamel next to the ADJ. This consists of proteolysis of the amelogenins with concurrent increase in crystal growth and an increase in mineralisation. During the maturation stage there continues to be a selective loss of protein (amelogenin) through proteolysis and resorption, loss of water and further growth of mineral crystals.

The amelogenin nanospheres control Hap crystal growth by acting as spacers between the crystals, providing space for new crystal deposition and inhibiting crystal fusion. There is good correlation between the size of the nanospheres and spacing of the enamel crystallites, suggesting that the width of the nanospheres controls the final thickness of the enamel crystals. In the maturation phase of amelogenesis, the matrix proteins have a reduced role as most organic material has been degraded through proteolysis and been removed.

Once the Tome’s Process develops, two sites of secretion exist. One is the proximal end of the process/cell body and gives rise to inter-rod or interprismatic enamel. The second site of secretion is the distal end of the process and is responsible for the formation of the enamel rods or prismatic enamel. One ameloblast (Tome’s Process) gives rise to one enamel prism, but interprismatic enamel is formed from adjacent cells. Both interprismatic and prismatic enamel have the same biochemical composition but differ in the orientation of Hap crystals.
