Before obtaining the mice, the mutation of the Amelx gene was confirmed by RIKEN.
A mutation in the Amelx gene causes hypoplastic AI (one of these categories) (Lagerstrom et al., 1991), as do mutations in other enamel matrix proteins, such as ameloblastin (Poulter et al., 2014) and enamelin (Seymen et al., 2014).
A mutation in the mouse Amelx tri-tyrosyl domain results in impaired secretion of amelogenin and phenocopies human X-linked amelogenesis imperfecta.
Here, we examined SRY, DYS14, AMELX, AMELY, TTC3, and RPL17 using WGAs from a single blastomere (Day 3) or trophoblastic (Day 5) biopsies, to determine the two important trisomies and the sex of the embryos from patients undergoing IVF treatments.
Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was performed to determine the specificity and sensitivity of AMELX and AMELY genes as an indicator of male embryos and for TTC3 and RPL17 to analyze Trisomy 21 and Trisomy 18.
Estos marcadores se analizaron en genes involucrados en la formacion del esmalte (AMELX, ENAM.AMBN, TUFT1 y TUIP11) y las frecuencias alelicas y fenotipicas se compararon entre grupos, de modo que el resultado mas relevante se encontro en un marcador para AMELX.
Por otra parte, la variacion genetica en el gen de la amelogenina (AMELX) mostro estar asociada con una alta experiencia en caries, pero en adultos.
