Cell adhesion to scaffolds has remained one of the challenges in tissue engineering. Although protein surface modification has been proven to enhance cell adhesion and retention, its specificity depending on cell and biomaterial types means that the best protein and concentration must be established for each specific application. This review focuses on the improvement of cell adhesion for human mesenchymal stem cells with an osteogenesis approach. A brief outline of the cell adhesion process… CONTINUE READING
