Figure 4

Evaluation of in vitro osteogenic induction ability of rPLCs: (a) cell adhesion of rPLCs on sample disks; (b) morphological analysis of rPLCs on sample disks (); (c) ALP activity, calcium deposition, and production of OCN in cells grown on sample disks. ; . TNS: titanium with nanonetwork structures; TNS-LF: titanium with nanonetwork structures coated with lactoferrin; rPLCs: rat periodontal ligament cells; ALP: analysis of alkaline phosphatase; OCN: osteocalcin.
