An artificial fusion protein between bone morphogenetic protein 2 and titanium-binding peptide is functional in vivo.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate osteogenesis using an artificial fusion protein (AFP) composed of modified bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) with a titanium (Ti)-binding peptide (TBP) motif on a Ti surface in vivo. In the in vivostudy, 5-μm thick Ti was coated with electron cyclotron resonance sputtering on a porous carbon scaffold which was… (More)
