Macromolecular Crowding Enhances Matrix Proteins Deposition in Tissue Engineered Vascular Grafts

Collagen type I in the culture medium decreased significantly compared with that in the medium without a macromolecular crowding agent. Scanning electron microscopy demonstrated that macromolecular crowding agents considerably enhanced the formation of matrix protein structures during the early stages of 3D culture.
