Heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor (HB-EGF), a member of the epidermal growth factor family of growth factors, is synthesized as a membrane-an-chored precursor (proHB-EGF) that is capable of stimulating adjacent cells in a juxtacrine manner. ProHB-EGF is cleaved in a protein kinase C-dependent process, to yield the soluble form. It(More)
For cell-based medicine, to mimic in vivo cellular localization, various tissue engineering approaches have been studied to obtain a desirable arrangement of cells on scaffold materials. We have developed a novel method of cell manipulation called "cell transfer technology", enabling the transfer of cultured cells onto scaffold materials, and controlling(More)
