A newly identified mechanism involved in regulation of human mesenchymal stem cells by fibrous substrate stiffness.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Stiffness of biomaterial substrates plays a critical role in regulation of cell behavior. Although the effect of substrate stiffness on cell behavior has been extensively studied, molecular mechanisms of regulation rather than those involving cytoskeletal activities still remain elusive. In this study, we fabricated aligned ultrafine fibers and… (More)
