Essential cellular functions are often lost under culture in traditional two-dimensional (2D) systems. Therefore, biologically more realistic three-dimensional (3D) cell culture systems are needed that provide mechanical and biochemical cues which may otherwise be unavailable in 2D. For the present study, an alginate-based hydrogel system was used in which cells in an alginate solution were seeded onto dried alginate foams. A uniform distribution of NIH:3T3 and NHIK 3025 cells entrapped within… CONTINUE READING
