2-Hydroxy-ethyl methacrylate (HEMA) is a major monomer released from resin-base dental restorative materials. HEMA is cytotoxic to pulp cells and leads to apoptosis. This study examined the effect of Translationally Controlled Tumor Protein (TCTP) against apoptosis from HEMA. TCTP from banana prawn (Penaeus merguiensis) was cloned and the protein was(More)
Dental materials that can promote cell proliferation and function is required for regenerative pulp therapy. Resin modified glass ionomer cement (RMGIC), a broadly used liner or restorative material, can cause apoptosis to pulp cells mainly due to HEMA (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate), the released residual monomer. Recent studies found that chitosan and(More)
