The effect of pH in the range 6.6-8.2 on the incorporation of 14C-proline into the rabbit dental pulp incubated in vitro has been studied. The amount of label in the cold TCA-soluble pool, total protein, and hydroxyproline (i.e. collagen) of the pulp tissue increased linearly with pH in all three fractions. A similar increase was found in the amount of… (More)
