Summaries for AMELY Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for AMELY Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the amelogenin family of extracellular matrix proteins. Amelogenins are involved in biomineralization during tooth enamel development. Mutations in a related gene on chromosome X cause X-linked amelogenesis imperfecta. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for AMELY Gene

AMELY (Amelogenin, Y-Linked) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include structural constituent of tooth enamel. An important paralog of this gene is AMELX.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AMELY Gene

  • Plays a role in biomineralization. Seems to regulate the formation of crystallites during the secretory stage of tooth enamel development. Thought to play a major role in the structural organization and mineralization of developing enamel.
