Phenotypic variation is critical to many aspects of biological research. Use of a captive population to address questions concerning the genetics and evolution of dental variation raises the question of how the pattern of phenotypic variation under study compares with that in a wild population of...
Objective Previously an unidentified collagenolytic metalloprotease together with gelatinase (matrix metalloproteinase-2, MMP-2), and enamelysin (MMP-20) have been detected in human dentin. The aim of the study was to characterize dentinal collagenolytic enzymes. Furthermore, we hypothesized that...
