Improving biocompatibility of metallic alloy biomaterials has been of great interest to prevent implant associated-diseases, such as stent thrombosis. Herein a simple and efficient procedure was designed to biofunctionalize a biomaterial surface by isolating a SUS316L stainless steel binding peptide.
After three rounds of phage panning procedure, 12 mer peptide (SBP-A; VQHNTKYSVVIR) was identified as SUS316L-binding peptide. The SBP-A peptide formed a stable bond to a SUS316L modified surface and was not toxic to HUVECs. The SBP-A was then used for anti-ICAM antibody modification on SUS316L to construct a vascular endothelial cell-selective surface. The constructed surface dominantly immobilized vascular endothelial cells to smooth muscle cells, demonstrating that the SBP-A enabled simple immobilization of biomolecules without disturbing their active biological function.
The SUS316L surface was successfully biofunctionalized using the novel isolated peptide SBP-A, showing its potential as an ideal interface molecule for stent modification. This is the first report of material binding peptide-based optimal surface functionalization to promote endothelialisation. This simple and efficient biofunctionalization procedure is expected to contribute to the development of biocompatible materials.
