INTRODUCTION: Pulp capping materials allow healing of injured pulp with a layer of reparative dentin. Glucose is needed to cure the injured area. Glucose is transported by glucose transporter (Glut) 2 and Glut4, which are transmembrane proteins that act as gatekeepers. We hypothesized that the transport of glucose via Glut2/Glut4 might contribute to the production of a dentin bridge during wound healing. Therefore, we explored Glut2 and Glut4 expression during reparative dentinogenesis after mineral trioxide aggregate capping. METHODS: The upper left first molar of 8-week-old Wistar rats underwent pulpotomy with mineral trioxide aggregate. At 1, 3, 5, 7, and 14 days after treatment, localization and colocalization of Glut2, Glut4, nestin (odontoblast marker), and antiendothelial cell antigen 1 (RECA-1; endothelial cell marker) were analyzed with immunohistochemical staining. Messenger RNA expression levels of Slc2a2 (encoding Glut2), Slc2a4 (encoding Glut4), Igf-1r (encoding insulinlike growth factor 1 receptor), and nestin were analyzed in the extracted teeth using real-time polymerase chain reaction. RESULTS: Glut2 and Glut4 were localized within odontoblasts and endothelial cells in normal control teeth. Three days after pulpotomy, Glut2- and Glut4-positive cells were detected; 7 days after pulpotomy, immunoreactivity for Glut2 and Glut4 was confined to newly differentiated odontoblastlike cells arranged beneath reparative dentin. Messenger RNA expression levels of Slc2a2 and Slc2a4 were significantly up-regulated after pulpotomy. CONCLUSIONS: Glut2 and Glut4 regulate glucose transport during wound healing beneath the injured area. This may contribute to the development of new vital pulp therapy for patients with deep caries.
