  Domain Name: Amelin
Ameloblastin precursor (Amelin). This family consists of several mammalian Ameloblastin precursor (Amelin) proteins. Matrix proteins of tooth enamel consist mainly of amelogenin but also of non-amelogenin proteins, which, although their volumetric percentage is low, have an important role in enamel mineralisation. One of the non-amelogenin proteins is ameloblastin, also known as amelin and sheathlin. Ameloblastin (AMBN) is one of the enamel sheath proteins which is though to have a role in determining the prismatic structure of growing enamel crystals.
