    • ODAM protein is the unique constituent of calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumors (CEOTs), also known as Pindborg tumors. CEOTs are benign but locally aggressive pathologic entities arising mainly in the mandible and commonly associated with an unerupted or embedded tooth. They are characterized by the presence of squamous-cell proliferation, calcification, and, notably, amyloid deposits
