New implant materials, which support and accelerate active healing, are of high interest to deal with age-related diseases responsible for impaired bone healing. One promising therapeutic approach involves the coating of implants with modified glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) that partially mimic the native bone environment and actively promote osteogenesis and bone remodeling. During the last years we developed and applied mass spectrometry based methods to study toxicological, mechanistic, and structural aspects of cell-implant and protein-implant interactions. Initially we studied the effect of several chemically modified GAGs on bone resorbing osteoclast as well as on bone forming osteoblast in vitro (1). To unravel the mechanism of increased bone formation in more detail we investigated whether GAGs influence only osteoblasts or whether they also directly affect the formation, composition, activity, and distribution of osteoblast-released matrix vesicles (MV). Thus, MVs were enriched and the MV proteome as well as the proteome of the MV-releasing osteoblasts was analyzed with and without contact to sulfated GAGs (2). The question whether and how selected proteins can be enriched or effected due to specific chemical modifications of the GAGs and which interaction sites were involved, was addressed using H/D exchange mass spectrometry (3,4). Finally for the evaluation of the immune reaction of animals to diverse implants, wound-fluid samples were collected by microdialysis and quantified by mass spectrometry. This approach allows us to assess bone specific cytokine responses and distinct protein and metabolite profiles at several time points during the first 24 h of wound healing (5,6).
