Abstract:Micropatterned surfaces with different chemical topographies were synthesised in order to investigate the influence of surface chemistry\ud
and topography on cell behaviour. The microstructured materials were synthesised by photoimmobilising natural Hyaluronan (Hyal) and its\ud
sulphated derivative (HyalS), both adequately functionalised with a photorective moiety, on glass substrates. Four different grating patterns\ud
(10, 25, 50 and 100 Am) were used to pattern the hyaluronan. The micropatterned samples wer…
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.
