“Aligned-to-random” nanofiber scaffolds for mimicking the structure of the tendon-to-bone insertion site

Author affiliations

Abstract

We have demonstrated the fabrication of “aligned-to-random” electrospun nanofiber scaffolds that mimic the structural organization of collagen fibers at the tendon-to-bone insertion site. Tendon fibroblasts cultured on such a scaffold exhibited highly organized and haphazardly oriented morphologies, respectively, on the aligned and random portions.
