SummaryThe kinetics of attachment of NIL B and SV-NIL cells to glass, siliconized glass, and surfaces coated with random copolypeptides have been studied. It was found that in the absence of serum proteins, neither the rate nor the extent of attachment of cells is affected by the nature of the surface. In the presence of bovine serum albumin, the total uptake and rate of attachment of both NIL B and SV-NIL cells to the neutral, hydrophobic, and negatively charged copolymers is decreased compared with attachme…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
