This is a whole research topic in Description Logics: how KR and DB
can go together. I'll give a tutorial on that at the 1st International
Semantic Web Conference in June. While waiting :-) you can have a look
at the tutorial web page:
http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/~franconi/dl/course/tutorial/ 
where a short survey paper is available:

At the "Intro to DL" course web page you can have a look at the last
module on DL&DB, and at the listed literature available online:
