STUDY DESIGN The mRNA levels of aggrecan and collagen were quantified in intervertebral disc cells cultured under three conditions: primary alginate culture, monolayer culture, and re-encapsulation in alginate after monolayer culture. OBJECTIVES To compare the phenotype of intervertebral disc cells under different culture conditions and to investigate the reversibility of cell phenotype after re-encapsulation in alginate after monolayer culture. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The intervertebral… CONTINUE READING
