Abstract

Purpose: In this work, the effects of sodium chloride (NaCl) on gene expression of planktonic cells are investigated. Also assessed are the effects of NaCl on zeta potential of sound and demineralized dentin.

Methods: The relative level of glucosyltransferase B (), and transcription of in the presence of NaCl was evaluated by quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR). The osmolality of varying salt (NaCl) concentrations and their influence on the zeta potential of sound and demineralized dentin was investigated as well.

Results: NaCl significantly reduced the expression of and genes in planktonic ; whereas, gene expression significantly increased in the presence of NaCl (P < 0.05). NaCl at concentrations of 37.5 mg/ml reduced zeta potential of demineralized dentin, while no significant decrease of zeta potential was found when sound dentin was exposed to this concentration.

Conclusion: NaCl reduces the expression of some in and increases negative potential charge of demineralized dentin.
