Title
Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) adsorption kinetics and enhancement of osteoblast differentiation on hydroxyapatite surfaces
Abstract

Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is a growth factor that promotes angiogenesis (tissue vascularization), cell motility, and cell differentiation, making it a potentially beneficial coating for bone implants. However, very little is known about maximizing HGF attachment to surfaces of tissue-engineered scaffolds. Here, we examine methods and kinetics of HGF adsorption onto a dense hydroxyapatite (HA) surface (used in bone implants) and determine the influence of HGF coating on osteoblast phenotype/differentiation. We demonstrate that incubating HA with HGF in solution (and not allowing the solution to dry) resulted in maximal surface adsorption that was not enhanced by extending incubation time beyond 2 days. Daily shaking of the coated HA surface did not remove adsorbed HGF. To further examine the effect of HA on osteoblast phenotype, MC3T3-E1 preosteoblasts were seeded onto HA or HGF-HA surfaces. Gene expression analyses indicate that HGF coating enhanced osteoblast differentiation as demonstrated by increased runx2 (a transcription factor important for osteoblast lineage and differentiation), alkaline phosphatase (marker of mid stage differentiation) and osteocalcin (marker of late stage differentiation) mRNA levels. Taken together, our results demonstrate that HGF can serve as an excellent bone implant coating based on its ability to readily adsorb to HA surfaces, maintain integrity over time, and enhance osteoblast differentiation.
