Scientists investigated mammary epithelial cell phenotypes and metabolic profiles on animal breast extracellular matrix-derived tissue matrix gel, Col I, and Matrigel. Atomic force microscopy, fluorescence microscopy, acini formation assay, differentiation experiments, spatial migration/invasion assays, proliferation assay, and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy were used to examine biological phenotypes and metabolic changes.

Investigators provide a concise overview of the contextual contribution of fibroblastic mesenchymal cells in physiology and disease and bring into focus emerging evidence for both their heterogeneity at the single-cell level and their tissue-specific, spatiotemporal functional diversity.
Neural ribbons offer multifunctionality in vitro including co-encapsulation of the injury site ESM modifier chondroitinase ABC, tested in glial scar models, and ability of cervically-patterned spinal cord neural stem cells to differentiate within neural ribbons and project axons for integration with 3D external matrices.
