Micro/nanofibrous substrates have been widely used for tissue regeneration because of their similarities to extracellular matrix components and their high surface area, which facilitates attachment and proliferation of cells. Phlorotannin, the main component of the brown alga Ecklonia cava, contains various growth factors that promote the regeneration of various tissues, including bone, by stimulating alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity and inducing calcium deposition. Despite the benefits of… CONTINUE READING
