Abstract

The use of force spectroscopy to measure and quantify the forces involved in the adhesion of 3T3 fibroblasts to different chemically functionalized surfaces has been investigated. Cells were grown on glass surfaces as well as on surfaces used for cell sheet engineering: surfaces coated with polyelectrolyte multilayers (poly-L-lysine and hyaluronic acid) and thermally-responsive poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) brushes. Individual adherent cells were detached from their culture substrate using an AFM cantilever coated with fibronectin. The maximum forces of detachment of each cell were measured and taken as characteristic of the cellular adhesion. Large differences in cellular adhesion were observed on polyelectrolyte coatings depending on the number of polyelectrolyte layers. On PNIPAM-grafted surfaces, changes of more than an order of magnitude were observed in cell adhesion above and below the lower critical solution temperature. Glass surfaces patterned with periodic PNIPAM microdomains were also investigated, and it was shown that cellular adhesion could be reduced while keeping cellular morphology unchanged

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
