The effect of a cell-adhesive peptide containing Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) immobilized through poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) on titanium (Ti) on calcification by MC3T3-E1 cells was investigated to develop a new surface modification technique using biofunctional molecules. RGD was immobilized on Ti through PEG, both terminals of which were terminated with -NH(2) and(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of active hydroxyl groups on a titanium (Ti) surface on the bond strength between Ti and segmented polyurethane (SPU) composite through gamma-mercapto propyl trimethoxysilane (gamma-MPS). Active hydroxyl groups on Ti surface oxide were controlled by immersion in hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) with(More)
The in vitro short-term platelet adhesion on various metals, as accelerated by the addition of Ca2+, was evaluated in this study. Metals used for medical devices [an austenitic stainless steel, a cobalt (Co)-chromium (Cr)-molybdenum (Mo) alloy, a titanium (Ti)-6 aluminum (Al)-4 vanadium (V) alloy, a Ti-6Al-7 niobium (Nb) alloy, a Tinickel (Ni) alloy, and(More)
The isoelectric points (IEPs) of two zwitterions, glycine and both-terminals-terminated poly(ethylene glycol) (NH(2)-PEG-COOH), were determined from the titration curves, and the thicknesses of zwitterion layers immobilized on titanium (Ti) with immersion and electrodeposition at various pH based on IEPs were evaluated with ellipsometry to investigate the(More)

Purpose The study was aimed at investigating what kind of lip positions are selected by Japanese adult participants for an unfamiliar Mandarin rounded vowel /y/ and if their lip positions are related to and/or differentiated from those for their native vowels. Method Videotaping and post hoc tracking measurements for lip positions, namely protrusion and(More)
