Micropatterning: Fabrication of Multifaceted Micropatterned Surfaces with Laser Scanning Lithography (Adv. Funct. Mater. 15/2011)
The implementation of engineered surfaces with micrometer-sized patterns of cell adhesive ligands against a biologically inert background has led to numerous discoveries in fundamental cell biology. On page 2876, Jennifer L. West and co-workers present a laser-based patterning strategy for the fabrication of surfaces displaying multiple patterned ligands, where each ligand is confined to its own array. Cells cultured on surfaces with two ligands display concurrent adhesion to both ligands simultaneously and utilize both ligands for lamella formation during migration.
