Biomaterials for spinal cord regeneration: outgrowth of presumptive neuronal precursors on electrospun poly(epsilon)-caprolactone scaffolds microlayered with alternating polyelectrolytes.
The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of electrospun poly(epsilon)-caprolactone (PCL) scaffolds treated with alternating paly-electrolytes as a controllable three-dimensional adhesive substrate for neuronal progenitors. Unmodified PCL surfaces were generally not supportive of mouse embryonic stem cell (mESC) colony adhesion. However, scaffolds surfaced using layer-by-layer (LbL) deposition of heparin/poly-L-lysine encouraged better local adhesion of mESC colonies, and networking...[Show more]
