|Abstract:||The synergistic effects of extracellular matrix (ECM) protein combinations on Hep3B cell proliferation and functions are studied herein. Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) (PHBV) microspheres were covalently conjugated with three types of proteins, collagen (type I), laminin, and fibronectin, using 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl) carbodiimide and N-hydroxysuccinimide cross linkers. Successful conjugations of protein molecules were verified by the presence of nitrogen peaks in X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The densities of grafted proteins were quantified using Micro-BCA kit. A human hepatoma cell line, Hep3B, was then cultured in vitro on the ECM proteins-modified microspheres for 2 weeks. Cell proliferation was estimated using MTT method, and two hepatic functions, albumin secretion and P-450 activity, were evaluated using ELISA and EROD assays, respectively. The results indicated that combination of the three ECM proteins on microsphere surfaces has a significant effect on the proliferation of Hep3B cells, thus better mimicking the in vivo environment for liver tissue engineering. © 2007 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.|
