Exclusion of known gene for enamel development in two Brazilian families with amelogenesis imperfecta
Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a genetically heterogeneous group of diseases that result in defective development of tooth enamel. Mutations in several enamel proteins and proteinases have been associated with AI. The ...
