Abstract

The effects of substrate topography on the behavior of human corneal epithelial cells was investigated using substrates patterned with grooves and ridges. It was found that cells responded to topographic features as small as 70 nm wide by aligning with the pattern direction. Results showed that substrate topography affected internal organization of the cell, inducing the alignment of cytoskeletal elements and adhesives structures.
