The identical patterns of qualitative and quantitative protein and mRNA expression in the regenerated pulp and normal pulp demonstrated complete pulp regeneration. The lack of tissue specific markers in the dental pulp is a major challenge in dental regenerative medicine. In order to identify specific markers in dental pulp we undertook a comparison of the gene expression profile of the dental pulp with that of periodontal ligament and gingiva.
