- Long-term maintenance of patterns of hippocampal pyramidal cells on substrates of polyethylene glycol and microstamped polylysineD W Branch
Biophysics Program, Beckman Institute, Urbana, IL, USA
IEEE Trans Biomed Eng 47:290-300. 2000..We conclude that these materials, especially PEG, are adequate for the maintenance of long-term patterned cultures of neurons. We believe that this is the first report of high-quality long-term patterning of cultured neurons...
- Long-term stability of grafted polyethylene glycol surfaces for use with microstamped substrates in neuronal cell cultureD W Branch
Biophysics Program, University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, USA
Biomaterials 22:1035-47. 2001..We found that all the layers in the cross-linking procedure were stable in cell culture conditions, with the exception of PEG, which degraded after day 25...
- Microcontact printing for precise control of nerve cell growth in cultureB C Wheeler
Beckman Institute, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign 61801, USA
J Biomech Eng 121:73-8. 1999..When polylysine was stamped adjacent to a laminin/polylysine mixture, neural somata and dendrites preferred the polylysine while axons prefer the mixture or the border between the two...
