In vitro apatite induction by phosphophoryn immobilized on modified collagen fibrils.


Noncollagenous phosphoproteins that interact with type I collagen are thought to nucleate the mineral phase to collagen network of mineralized tissues. Previously, we found that phosphophoryn cross-linked to type I collagen was an effective nucleator of apatite. Here, we investigated the potential role of collagen telopeptide structure on this nucleation… (More)
