Abstract

Two-dimensional cell patterns prepared on substrate surfaces by an electrochemical-based biolithography method have been transferred into fibrin gels prepared in situ. Line patterns of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) in the gel that was strained after the transfer formed a linear vessel-like structure within 8 days.
