Abstract

Electrospun fiber meshes are patterned at length scales comparable to or lower than their fiber diameter. Simple nano- and microgrooves and closed geometric shapes are imprinted in different tones using a fast imprint process at physiological temperatures. Human mesenchymal stromal cells cultured on patterned scaffolds show differences in cellular morphology and cytoskeleton organization. Microgrooved electrospun fibers support upregulation of alkaline phosphatase and bone morphogenetic protein-2 gene expression when cells are cultured in osteogenic medium.
