The authors report a 3D culture system with a defined matrix composition that reflects the complexity of the native ECM, where growth factors in combination with Biolaminin isoforms give more natural cellular processes. The authors incorporated the full-length Biolaminin 521, 332, and 411 proteins into a synthetic polymer network with controlled physico-chemical properties, and showed examples of hMSC osteogenesis and neurite growth in this 3D microenvironment.
