Guided neurite growth is critical in both peripheral nervous system and central nervous system nerve regeneration. Scaffolds that provide structural and guidance cues for neuronal cells have a potential role in neural regeneration application. Type I collagen is suitable to be processed as an engineered scaffold for nerve regeneration because of its biological and structural properties. A few previous studies have shown that cross-linking of collagen scaffolds with microbial transglutaminase improves the mechanical strength and degradation properties of the scaffolds. It was shown that laminin 5 can regulate neurite outgrowth and extension. A motif (PPFLMLLKGSTR) in the human laminin 5 0 chain is crucial for both integrin alpha 3 beta 1 receptor binding and cell adhesion. In the present work, we studied the guidance effect of a laminin peptide (PPFLMLLKGSTR) gradient in collagen and cross-linked collagen scaffolds on neurite growth. Neurites of rat pheo-chromocytoma (PC12) cells showed a preferential growth toward the high laminin concentration level on the collagen scaffold, while the incorporation of laminin peptide in the scaffold did not influence neurite length of PC12 cells.
