A nanoscaffold for heart cells

Biophysicists have studied the structure of a nanofibrous scaffold, as well as its interaction with rat cardiac cells. The study revealed that cardiomyocytes - heart muscle cells - envelop nanofibers as they grow, while fibroblasts - connective tissue cells - tend to spread out on fibers forming several focal adhesion sites.
