The purposes of this research are to investigate the possibility of autologous mesenchymal stem cell transplantion method for alveolus bone regeneration using connective tissue growth factor (CTGF).
1. Isolation of human bone marrow cells and cell characterization.
Bone marrow cells were isolated from human iliac bone marrow of volunteer. Human bone marrow cells were plated and cultured in DMEM containing 10% FBS. Moreover, STRO-1 expressing cells were identified by immunostaining from culture of passage 9 cells, and these cells showed the multilineage differentiation (osteoblastic and adipogenic).
2. Effects of CTGF on stem cells behavior.
1) Cell attachment efficiency onto hydroxyapatite disks is enhanced by coating CCN2/CTGF dose-dependently, and CCN2/CTGF activated p38 MAPK signal pathway via αvβ3 integrin.
2) CCN2/CTGF significantly increased the cell proliferation dose dependently.
3) The migration assay using Chemotaxicell indicated that CCN2/CTGF significantly increased the cell migration.
4) CCN2/CTGF did not affect cell differentiation to the osteoblast.
5) CCN2/CTGF also enhanced the endothelial cell attachment and proliferation.
6) In vivo implantation study indicated that CCN2/CTGF enhance the stem cell survival and induce their migration into the porous hydroxyapatite scaffold.
