The aim of our study was to investigate the effect of resin composite components on glucan synthesis by glucosyltransferase (GTase) derived from a cariogenic bacterium, Streptococcus sobrinus B13. The eluates from cured composites stored in 0.05 mol/L potassium phosphate buffer (KPB) (pH 6.8) for 2 weeks at 37 degrees C stimulated the formation of water-insoluble glucan, whereas those from amalgam inhibited it. This finding suggests that the eluates from the resin composites enhance GTase… CONTINUE READING
