ABSTRACT
Objective Biocompatible materials such as interconnected porous hydroxyapatite ceramics (IP-CHA) loaded with osteogenic cells and bioactive agents are part of an evolving concept for overcoming craniofacial defects by use of artificial bone tissue regeneration. Amongst the bioactive agents, melatonin (MEL) and basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2) have been independently reported to induce osteoblastic activity. The present in vitro study was undertaken to examine the relationship between these two bioactive agents and their combinatory effects on osteoblastic activity and mineralization in vitro. Material and Methods Mouse preosteoblast cells (MC3T3-E1) were seeded and cultured within cylindrical type of IP-CHA block (ø 4x7 mm) by vacuum-assisted method. The IP-CHA/MC3T3 composites were subjected to FGF-2 and/or MEL. The proliferation assay, alkaline phosphatase enzyme activity (ALP), mRNA expressions of late bone markers, namely Osteocalcin (OCN) and Osteopontin (OPN), and Alizarin Red staining were examined over a period of 7 days. Results FGF-2 mainly enhanced the proliferation of MC3T3-E1 cells within the IP-CHA constructs. MEL mainly induced the mRNA expression of late bone markers (OCN and OPN) and showed increased ALP activity of MC3T3 cells cultured within IP-CHA construct. Moreover, the combination of FGF-2 and MEL showed increased osteogenic activity within the IP-CHA construct in terms of cell proliferation, upregulated expressions of OCN and OPN, increased ALP activity and mineralization with Alizarin Red. The synergy of the proliferative potential of FGF-2 and the differentiation potential of MEL showed increased osteogenic activity in MC3T3-E1 cells cultured within IP-CHA constructs. Conclusion These findings indicate that the combination of FGF-2 and MEL may be utilized with biocompatible materials to attain augmented osteogenic activity and mineralization.

Proliferation assay of MC3T3-E1 cells at different concentrations of FGF-2. Cell growth of MC3T3-E1 cells was examined on monolayer culture using MTT assay at different concentrations of FGF-2 (0, 2, 20,100 µg/ml). The high proliferative potential of MC3T3-E1 cells was observed in the presence of 20 µg/ml of FGF-2 at day 5. Statistical significance of p<0.01 is indicated by ***

Mentions: To determine the optimum concentration of FGF-2 and MEL for our study, MC3T3-E1 cells were cultured and treated accordingly. Firstly, we determined the optimum concentration of FGF-2 for the growth of MC3T3-E1 cells by MTT assay. The high proliferative potential of MC3T3-E1 cells on monolayer culture was observed in the presence of 20 µg/ml FGF-2 at day 5. Thus, we determined 20 µg/ml FGF-2 as optimum concentration in this study (Figure 1).
