Abstract

Synthetic peptides having hydroxyapatite binding ability can induce calcium phosphate (CaP) mineralization in simulated body fluids. The peptides freely dispersed in the solution induce formation of peptideCaP hybrids having sheet-like morphologies, whereas immobilized on solid substrates they induce hydroxyapatite deposition on the substrate surfaces. The results clearly show that distribution of the peptides affects their mineralization properties.
