Human fibroblast and human bone marrow cell response to lithographically nanopatterned adhesive domains on protein rejecting substrates.
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2007

The separate influence of topographical and chemical cues on cell attachment and spreading are well documented; however, that of duel-cue substrates is less so. In this study graft copolymers that sterically stabilize biological surfaces were employed alongside nanotopographical features fabricated by colloidal lithography. This resulted in the production of a range of substrates whereby the effect of chemistry and or topography on both on human fibroblast and bone marrow cell adhesion and spreading could be observed. The current studies indicate an enhancement of cell response as a consequence of modifications in material topography, whereas the current selected chemical cues inhibited cell function. Critically, in combination, topography modulated the effects of chemical environment.
