Figure 6: Exploring the short-term attachment of MSC and fibroblasts to distinct peptides.

Short-term attachment of MSC (black bars) and fibroblasts (grey bars) to selected peptides was investigated, as described in figure 3. Attachment of the cells to laminin-111 (LM111) or fibronectin (FN) served as positive controls, and attachment to BSA as a negative control. The ordinate presents the cell attachment index. This is the number of samples bound to a particular peptide compared to all samples tested, and expressed as % of total samples bound.
