    Abstract

    Blood compatibility is a one of basic parameters for artifical materials used in tissue engineering. It is well known that endothelial cells (ECs) have blood compatibility. Therefore, ECs are cultured on the surface of artificial materials for enhancing blood compatibility. Frictional stress and platelet adhesion on the surface of ECs cultured on various kinds of hydrogels were evaluated. It was found that the surface properties of ECs related on chemical structure and cross-linking concentration of the hydrogels, as well as the amount of glycocalyx on the EC surface.
