Summary of "Enamel pearls: Their occurrence in recent human populations and earliest manifestation in the modern human lineage."

To document and describe the occurrence of an enamel pearl on the distal root surface of the maxillary M3 of the fossil hominin specimen from Florisbad, South Africa that is dated to ca. 259,000 years B.P., and is an early representative of Homo sapiens or as a member of the evolutionary line that was directly ancestral to modern humans.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Epithelial cells surrounding the dental papilla and differentiated into three layers: the inner enamel epithelium, consisting of ameloblasts which eventually form the enamel, and the enamel pulp and external enamel epithelium, both of which atrophy and disappear before and upon eruption of the tooth, respectively.

The occurrence in an individual of two or more cell populations of different chromosomal constitutions, derived from different individuals. This contrasts with MOSAICISM in which the different cell populations are derived from a single individual.

The occurrence in an individual of two or more cell populations of different chromosomal constitutions, derived from a single ZYGOTE, as opposed to CHIMERISM in which the different cell populations are derived from more than one zygote.

Statistical calculations on the occurrence of disease or other health-related conditions in defined populations.

An acquired or hereditary condition due to deficiency in the formation of tooth enamel (AMELOGENESIS). It is usually characterized by defective, thin, or malformed DENTAL ENAMEL. Risk factors for enamel hypoplasia include gene mutations, nutritional deficiencies, diseases, and environmental factors.
