Chitosan enhances mineralization during osteoblast differentiation of human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells, by upregulating the associated genes.


OBJECTIVES   Chitosan is widely used as a scaffold for bone tissue engineering. However, up-to-date, no previous detailed study has been conducted to elucidate any mechanism of osteogenesis by chitosan itself. Here, we have evaluated effects of chitosan-coated tissue culture plates on adhesion and osteoblast differentiation processes of human mesenchymal… (More)
