Cellular Response of Anodized Titanium Surface by Poly(Lactide-co-Glycolide)/Bone Morphogenic Protein-2
The purpose of this study is to examine physical characteristics of and initial biological properties to anodized titanium treated with poly(d,l-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLG) mixed with recombinant human bone morphogenic protein-2 (rhBMP-2).
Titanium specimens were prepared in groups of four as follows: group NC was anodized under 300 V as control; group PC was anodized then dropped and dried with solution 0.02 ml PLG; group D was anodized then dropped and dried with solution 0.02 ml PLG/rhBMP-2 (3.75 μg per disc); and group E was anodized then coated with 0.02 ml PLG/rhBMP-2 (3.75 μg per disc) by electrospray. Human osteoblastic-like sarcoma cells were cultured. Cell proliferation and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity test were carried out. Runx-2 gene was investigated by the reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. Immunofluorescence outcome of osteogenic proteins was observed.
After 3 days, there were significantly higher proliferations compared rhBMP-2 loaded titanium discs with rhBMP-2 unloaded discs. The ALPase activity on rhBMP-2 loaded titanium discs was significantly higher than in rhBMP-2 unloaded discs. The expression level of Runx2 mRNA presented the highest on the PLG/rhBMP-2-coated surface.
PLG polymers mixed with rhBMP-2 might improve proliferation, differentiation and osteogenic protein formation of cells on the anodized titanium.
