Abstract

Surfaces of tissues were modified using supramolecular assemblies which were subjected to human foreskin fibroblasts adhesion, and formed into tissue culture polysterenes with extremely adhesive surface. Supramolecular assemblies can generate homogenous, biocompatible surfaces on top of heterogenous, adhesive or thrombogenic surfaces. These supramolecular assemblies can be further modified with peptides to create a potentially cell selective surface.
