We mapped seven positional candidate genes, Bmp10, Gpr73, Gp9, Cnbp, Copg, Rab7, and Rpn1, to an approximately 1.2-Mb region located between loci D4Got85 and D4Got148 on chromosome 4. None of the seven genes has been reported to be associated with radiation susceptibility.

A computerized contact angle device complementing a special software (Wingoutt) was used to measure the contact angle (theta) kinetics of a reference liquid (pure H(2)O) in the ten groups each of ten dentin surfaces during 120 s: Gp1: etched (37% phosphoric acid for 15 s) and blot-dried; Gp2: 3 s dried; Gp3: 5 s air-dried; Gp4: 10 s air-dried; Gp5: 20 s air-dried; Gp6: 30 s air-dried; Gp7: 1 min dried with hair dryer; Gp8: 5 s air-dried and HEMA treated; Gp9: 30 s air-dried followed by HEMA treatment; Gp10: HEMA treated prior to 30 s air-drying.
