The effect of RGD density on osteoblast and endothelial cell behavior on RGD-grafted polyethylene terephthalate surfaces.

Abstract

Hybrid materials combining polyethylene terephthalate and different types of cells (endothelial and osteoblastic cells) have been developed thanks to the covalent grafting of different densities of RGD containing peptides onto the polymer surface. Biomimetic modifications were performed by means of a three-step reaction procedure: creation of COOH functions… (More)
