Upregulated expression of the alkaline phosphatase gene

Fresh from the Scanning Electron Microscope

Alkaline phosphatase plays a vital role in osteogenesis and bone formation and is one of three identified osteogenic marker genes. At Ossiform, we are happy to show new preliminary data which indicates that osteoblasts cultured on the P3D Scaffolds have an upregulated expression of the alkaline phosphatase gene when compared to traditional cell culturing.

These data suggests that the P3D Scaffolds are beneficial for the osteogenic program in vitro on a transcriptional level, thereby supporting their natural genetic fate.
