Comparison of ovine mesenchymal cell and osteoblast osteogeic capacity in 2D and 3D

Kim, Margaret (2014) Comparison of ovine mesenchymal cell and osteoblast osteogeic capacity in 2D and 3D. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis explored the different bone-forming potential of specific bone cells with differing embryological origin, on conventional culture platforms compared to 3D biocompatible scaffolds in vitro. Bone mesenchymal stem cells, mandibular osteoblasts and long bone osteoblasts from adult and juvenile sheep were compared in the study, as the embryological origin of the osteoblasts from the craniofacial and appendicular skeleton differs. The study demonstrated differing characteristics of the various cell types when cultured on the two different platforms compared and this may have an impact on future research into cell seeded tissue scaffolds to aid in vivo tissue regeneration.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
