Cell–Surface Interactions

Part of the Learning Materials in Biosciences book series (LMB)


The interactions that can occur between a cell and an adjacent biomaterial in culture are vast and depend on the biochemical, physical, and mechanical properties of the biomaterial. The present chapter will discuss the effects of key biomaterial properties on cell attachment, proliferation, migration, and differentiation in culture. These cell–surface interactions will be discussed in the context of the envisioned clinical application of the biomaterials to facilitate an improved understanding of the “big picture” considerations when studying biomaterial-based technologies in cell culture, with a particular focus on tissue engineering technologies.
