In tissue engineering, the application of biofunctional compounds on biomaterials such as integrin binding RGD-peptides has gained growing interest. Anchorage-dependent cells like osteoblasts bind to these peptides thus ameliorating the integration of a synthetic implant. In case sterilized bone grafts are used as substitutes for reconstruction of bone… CONTINUE READING
