Chemical Salivary Proline-Rich Proteins

Name Salivary Proline-Rich Proteins
Equivalent Terms Proline-Rich Proteins, Salivary | Salivary Acidic Proline Rich Proteins | Salivary Acidic Proline-Rich Proteins | Salivary Basic Proline Rich Proteins | Salivary Basic Proline-Rich Proteins | Salivary Glycosylated Basic Proline Rich Proteins | Salivary Glycosylated-Basic Proline-Rich Proteins | Salivary Proline Rich Proteins
Definition A family of proline-rich proteins that constitute the majority of the protein component of SALIVA. Salivary proline-rich proteins occur as acidic, basic and glycosylated basic proteins. They perform a variety of functions such as adhering to the acquired ENAMEL PELLICLE, acting as lubricants and precipitating TANNINS.
