|Abstract:||The relationship between the stiffness of polycaprolactone (PCL) membrane and chondrocyte proliferation was investigated. The results of MTS assay showed that 3 days after seeding, no difference was observed in the proliferation in all groups. It was observed that compared with stiffness of 0.026 N/mm and 0.157 N/mm, chondrocytes grew faster on a substrate with stiffness of 0.916 N/mm. Chondrocytes preferred to embed in an environment with a relatively higher stiffness. The results indicated that different cells have different preference to the seeding substrate.|
