Abstract

Silane modification has been proposed as a powerful biomaterial surface modification tool. This is the first comprehensive investigation into effect of silane chain length on the resultant properties of –NH2 silane monolayers (SAMS) and the associated osteoinductive properties of the surface. A range of –NH2 presenting silanes, chain length 3 to 11, were introduced to glass coverslips and characterised using water contact angles, atomic force microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and Ninhydrin assays. The ability of the variation in chain length to form a homogenous layer across the entirety of the surfaces was also assessed. The osteoinductive potential of the resultant surfaces was evaluated by real time polymerase chain reaction, immunocytochemistry and von Kossa staining. Control of surface chemistry and topography was directly associated with changes in chain length. This resulted in the identification of a specific, chain length 11 (CL11) which significantly increased the osteoinductive properties of the modified materials. Only CL11 surfaces had a highly regular nano-topography/roughness which resulted in the formation of an appetite-like layer on the surface that induced a significantly enhanced osteoinductive response (increased expression of osteocalcin, CBFA1, sclerostin and the production of a calcified matrix) across the entirety of the surface.
