Mineralized collagen fibrils constitute a basic structural unit of collagenous mineralized tissues such as dentin and bone. Understanding of the mechanisms of collagen mineralization is vital for development of new materials for the hard tissue repair. We carried out bio-inspired mineralization of reconstituted collagen fibrils using poly-l-aspartic acid, as an analog of non-collagenous acidic proteins. Transmission electron microscopy and electron diffraction studies of the reaction products… CONTINUE READING
