The effect of surface pore size on the differentiation of rat bone marrow cells: morphological observations and expression of bone related protein mRNA.


The purpose of this study was to investigate the behavior of rat bone marrow cells (RBM) growing on surfaces with different pore sizes. RBM behavior on Millipore filters (MF-Millipore membrane filter) made from cellulose mixed esters with 5 different pore surfaces (0.45 microm, 1.2 microm, 3.0 microm, 5.0 microm and 8.0 microm) were compared in terms of… (More)
