Upon culturing hMSCs on a bioactive nanofiber scaffold made of poly-caprolactone (PCL) and nHA, it was demonstrated that the mineral phase existence increased alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity and mRNA expression levels of genes related to osteoblast without any osteogenous composition, and it was suggested that the architecture of this novel nanofibrous scaffolds and its chemical constituent could regulate hMSCs osteogenic differentiation [19].
Novel porous Cap-Ti6Al4V (Cap-Ti) hybrids with conspicuous physical and chemical properties regulated the propagation, osteogenous differentiation, and matrix mineralization of human periosteum derived cells (hPDCs), such as regulating osteoclast formation by CaP coating absorption of hPDCs, decreasing gene expression level of osteoprotegerin, and promoting multinucleated giant cells aggregation near to the Cap-Ti hybrids surface.
It was demonstrated that umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells of human (hUCMSCs) attaching to high-strength CPC showed superior propagation or osteogenous differentiation.
