Characterization of the dental pulp proteoglycans has been largely confined to the glycosaminoglycan component of the proteoglycan molecule, while the protein core has received little attention. This study was conducted to identify mRNAs of previously well-characterized proteoglycans-biglycan, decorin and versican-and link protein in dental pulp cells. Dermal fibroblasts were used as a positive control. Oligonucleotide probes were constructed based on published sequences for the four proteins… CONTINUE READING
