Summaries for AMBN Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for AMBN Gene

  • This gene encodes the nonamelogenin enamel matrix protein ameloblastin. The encoded protein may be important in enamel matrix formation and mineralization. This gene is located in the calcium-binding phosphoprotein gene cluster on chromosome 4. Mutations in this gene may be associated with dentinogenesis imperfect and autosomal dominant amylogenesis imperfect. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]

  • Amelogenesis imperfecta 1F (AI1F) [MIM:616270]: A form of amelogenesis imperfecta, a disorder characterized by defective enamel formation. The enamel may be hypoplastic, hypomineralized or both, and affected teeth may be discoloured, sensitive or prone to disintegration. AI1F is characterized by hypoplastic enamel of the primary and secondary dentition. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:24858907}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
