In this study, we investigated the effect of type I collagen on dentin matrix protein-1 (Dmp-1) and osteocalcin (OCN) gene expression of dental pulp cells. The mRNA level of Dmp-1 gene was down-regulated; however, OCN gene expression was up-regulated by the culture of dental pulp cells with type I collagen. These findings imply that type I collagen(More)
Elevated CO2 has been reported to stimulate plant growth under nitrogen-sufficient conditions, but the effects of CO2 on growth in a constantly nitrogen-limited state, which is relevant to most natural habitats of plants, remain unclear. Here, we maintained Arabidopsis seedlings under such conditions by growing a mutant with reduced nitrate uptake activity(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether hard tissue might be formed on dentin surfaces applied with recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) in palatal connective tissue. Fifty-eight dentin blocks were prepared from rat roots, demineralized with 24% EDTA (pH 7.0), applied with 0, 50 and 100 microgram/ml rhBMP-2, and labeled as(More)
