- ... Bone cell interaction with extracellular matrix (ECM) microenvironment is of critical importance when engineering surface interfaces for bone regeneration. In this work layer-by-layer films of type I collagen (coll), the major constituent of bone ECM, and heparin (hep), a glycosaminoglycan, were assembled on poly(l-lactic acid) (PLLA) substrates to evaluate the impact of the biomacromolecular coat ...
