Coculturing scaffolds with seeded cells in vitro is an indispensable process for construction of engineered tissues. It is essential to understand effects of the constituent particles of scaffold on seeded cells. In this study, we investigated the influence of nano-sized hydroxyapatite (nHAP) particles on the proliferation and osteogenic differentiation of(More)
This study was performed in 36 rabbits to investigate the role of midkine (MK) in the resorption of herniated intervertebral discs. The L(1-2) disc was excised and immersed in one of three kinds of solution for two hours before relocation into the L4 epidural space. In the MK-treated group, the weight of relocated intervertebral discs decreased more over(More)
