To investigate the effect of benzalkonium chloride (BAC) addition to ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) on transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) release, as well as attachment and proliferation of dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) on dentin. A total of standard 268 human dentin disks were prepared and immersed in 1.5% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) for 5 min. The disks were rinsed with distilled water and randomly divided into seven groups. In control group, the disks received no further treatment. The remaining disks were immersed in following solutions: 17% EDTA or 17% EDTA + 0.008% BAC for 1, 5 or 10 min and rinsed with distilled water. DPSCs were seeded in part of the disks since the TGF-..View full abstract
