Magnesium ions enhance infiltration of osteoblasts in scaffolds via increasing cell motility.


Magnesium (Mg) ions are the most abundant intracellular divalent cations and play a pivotal role in numerous cellular processes. Biodegradable Mg-containing materials, including scaffolds, are promising candidates for orthopedic applications. Here, we investigated the effect of Mg ions on the cellular properties of osteoblasts. Cytotoxicity tests on… (More)
