Mesoporous bioactive glass (MBG) is performed as a bone tissue engineering material because of its good bioactivity, biocompatibility and osteoinducion characteristics. Here, we propose MBG with larger pores (MBG-L) adsorbed fibroblast growth factor (FGF) to facilitate osteoblast differentiation and matrix mineralization. Specifically, we observed that MBG-L promotes calcium deposit precipitation in vitro. In addition, adhesion, proliferation, differentiation and matrix mineralization were promoted after osteoblast cultured on MBG-L/FGF. Interestingly, we found that the transcriptional activity of the critical transcription factor Runx2 was increased through MAPK pathway after osteoblast cultured on MBG-L/FGF. Support for this result, we found that the expression of osteoblastic marker genes, Osteocalcin (Ocn), Osteopontin (Opn), and Runx2 were increased. Thus, our findings provided that MBG-L/FGF could be a promising new material in bone tissue engineering.
