Adsoption CD34 Antibody onto the Col/Hep Coating Film on Titanium to Improve Cytocompatibility of Titanium
This study deals with improving the cytocompatibility of titanium by a coating with heparin(hep), collagen(col) and CD34 antibody. Collagen and heparin molecules were adsorbed onto a titanium surface using a layer-by-layer (LBL) self-assembly technique. The col/hep coating were formed by alternating deposition of negatively charged heparin and positively charged collagen based on electrostatic interactions. Finally the CD34 antibody was absorbed onto the surface of col/hep coating by electrostatic interactions. The chemical composition and surface topography were investigated by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The fluorescence microscopy images proved that the CD34 antibody was existed on the surface of the col/hep coating. The SEM results and the MTT test results showed that, compared to the surface of col/hep coating and the surface of titanium, the CD34 surface had better endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) attachment and proliferation. The EPCs on the CD34 surface displayed the morphology of flat endothelium, and a confluent cell layer after cultured for 2d. This study suggested that this method maybe have good potential for surface modification of cardiovascular devices.
