Biomineralization is the term given to all the process of formation of minerals in living organisms. The union of one inorganic portion with an organic portion results composites with unique properties. The osseous tissue, for example, is made by one complexity of cells responsible for synthesis and maintenance of carbonated hydroxyapatite composite within collagen fibrils. The osseous tissue synthesis is regulated by a diversity of enzymes; being the alkaline phosphatase one of those enzymes with a key role in local supersaturation of phosphate ions on osseous matrix mineralization and regulates the inhibitors concentrations of this process. In this project, organic matrices made by phospholipids and addictives will be deposited upon metallic supports (titanium) by Langmuir-Blodgett technique. Those matrices will be used as a biomimetic system to insertion of alkaline phosphatase and analysis in its role on calcium phosphates growth, exposing those supports containing the matrices in solutions that contains phosphorylated substrates and mineralization nucleators. Then a series of analyses will be made, checking the morphologic characteristics of the films by microscopy (scanning electron, fluorescence and atomic force) and structural characteristics of the films by spectroscopy (infrared and x-ray dispersive energy), zeta potential and surface energy; assessing the immobilized enzyme activity and the cellular viability of osteoblastic cells on the Ti modified surface. With that we intend to obtain osteoinductive biomaterials with potential of clinical application, making possible the optimization of osseous prosthesis integration. (AU)
