Alginate microcapsules prepared with xyloglucan as a synthetic extracellular matrix for hepatocyte attachment.

Abstract

In this study, xyloglucan (XG) was used as a new synthetic extracellular matrix (ECM) for primary mouse hepatocyte attachment in Ca-alginate (AL) capsules. The rates of hepatocytes adhesion onto collagen type I-, XG-coated and uncoated polystyrene (PS) surface were 89.1%, 91.1% and 25.5%, respectively, at 4 h after incubation at 37 degrees C. From the… (More)
