The switching of focal adhesion maturation sites and actin filament activation for MSCs by topography of well-defined micropatterned surfaces.

Abstract

Securing robust cell adhesion between cells and biomaterials is one of key considerations for tissue engineering. However, the cell adhesion investigation by the biophysical effects such as topography or rigidity of substrates has only been recently reported. In this study, we examined the spatial property of focal adhesions by changing the height of… (More)
