Alignment and cell-matrix interactions of human corneal endothelial cells on nanostructured collagen type I matrices.

Gruschwitz R, Friedrichs J, Valtink M, Franz CM, Müller DJ, Funk RH, Engelmann K

To use nanoscopically defined, two-dimensional matrices assembled from aligned collagen type I fibrils as a sheet substratum for in vitro cultivation of human corneal endothelial cells (HCECs). To assess the effect of matrix architecture on HCEC morphology and to characterize integrin-mediated HCEC-matrix interaction.
