Hydrogel-based three-dimensional matrix for neural cells.

The ability to organize cells in three dimensions (3D) is an important component of tissue engineering. This study sought to develop an extracellular matrix (ECM) equivalent with a physicochemical structure capable of supporting neurite extension from primary neural cells in 3D. Rat embryonic day 14 striatal cells and chick embryonic day 9 dorsal root… CONTINUE READING
