Apart from the midstory vegetation coverage (Kruskal-Walis test, [chi square] = 4.66, p = 0.10), the other habitat variables differed significantly between topographies ([chi square] > 10.57, p < 0.01).
(9) Fake central islands will produce similar topographies with two main distinctions in that they are typically accompanied by central corneal staining and disrupted mires.
To examine the effects of these new topographies on PSC-derived cortical neurons, we seeded DIV40 cortical progenitors from the 0028 and ChiPSC6b iPSC lines (tested previously on the variable pillar substrate), as well as two additional lines, BJ1 and SBAD2, onto flat, pillar, and microgroove substrates.
Further research in this area may lead to the development of clinical prostheses with topographies that can directly modulate stem cell fate, enabling cell growth and development to be tailored to a specific application without using potentially harmful chemicals.
This unique combination of surface topographies is designed to create an optimal host-bone response and actively participate in the fusion process by promoting the upregulation of osteogenic and angiogenic factors necessary for bone growth, encouraging natural production of bone morphogenetic proteins, and creating the potential for a faster and more robust fusion.
