A "CBABC"-type pentablock coupling polymer, mesylMPEO, was designed and synthesized to promote human endothelial cell growth on the surfaces of polyurethane biomaterials. The polymer was composed of a central 4,4'-methylenediphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) coupling unit and poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) spacer arms with methanesulfonyl (mesyl) end groups pendent on both ends. As the presurface modifying additive (pre-SMA), the mesylMPEO was noncovalently introduced onto the poly(ether urethane) (PEU) surfaces by dip coating, upon which the protein/peptide factors (gelatin, albumin, and arginine-glycine-aspartic acid tripeptide [RGD]) were covalently immobilized in situ by cleavage of the original mesyl end groups. The pre-SMA synthesis and PEU surface modification were characterized using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H NMR), attenuated total reflection infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) were harvested manually by collagenase digestion and seeded on the modified PEU surfaces. Cell adhesion ratios (CAR) and cell proliferation ratios (CPR) were measured using flow cytometry, and the individual cell viability (ICV) was determined by MTT assay. The cell morphologies were investigated by optical inverted microscopy (OIM) and scanning electrical microscopy (SEM). The gelatin- and RGD-modified surfaces were HUVEC-compatible and promoted HUVEC growth. The albumin-modified surfaces were compatible but inhibited cell adhesion. The results also indicated that, for HUVEC in vitro cultivation, the cell adhesion stage was of particular importance and had a significant impact on the cell responses to the modified surfaces.
