Construction of heterotypic cell sheets by magnetic force-based 3-D coculture of HepG2 and NIH3T3 cells.

Heterotypic 3-D coculture is essential to mimic tissues and organs, because cell-cell interaction between various types of cells is believed to be important for the activation of cellular functions. In this study, magnetic force was applied to construct a 3-D coculture system of HepG2 and NIH3T3 cells as a model of hepatocytes and mesenchymal cells… CONTINUE READING
