Abstract

Circular dichroism and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopic studies of the major amelogenin protein of developing bovine tooth enamel in solution and in the solid state suggest a unique secondary structure containing 0-sheet and repetitive β-turn structures. The repetitive β-turn structure at the C-terminal end results from the unique primary structure of amelogenin.
