Comparison of the osteoblastic activity conferred on Si-doped hydroxyapatite scaffolds by different osteostatin coatings

Acta Biomaterialia 2011 Volume 7, Issue 10, Pages 3555-3562

Parathyroid hormone-related protein (107-111) (osteostatin) induces osteogenic effects in osteoblasts in vitro and in regenerating bone in mice and rabbits. In this study we used osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 cell cultures to evaluate and compare the bioactivity of this peptide either adsorbed or covalently bound (by its C-terminus) to Si-doped hydroxyapatite (Si-HA) scaffolds after organic (-NH2) functionalization. By these means osteostatin can be locally released or kept anchored to the scaffold surface. This was confirmed by chemical analysis and by testing the efficiency of osteostatin-loaded Si-HA scaffolds (placed in Transwell chambers) in healing a scratch wound in mouse pluripotent mesenchymal C3H10T1/2 cells….
