Biomimetic, self-assembled calcium carbonate (CaCO3) concentric microgrooves with groove widths of 5.0 and 10 μm are fabricated by simply controlling incubation temperature. Mouse MC3T3-E1 cells are cultured on flat and microgrooved substrates of CaCO3 and their adhesion, spreading, proliferation, alkaline phosphatase activity, and calcium content are remarkably enhanced by the microgrooves, in particular, the narrower ones.
