Abstract(s)Tendon's regeneration is limited, demanding for cell-based strategies to fully restore their functionality upon injury. The concept of magnetic force-based TE(1), generally using magnetic nanoparticles may enable, for example, stem cell stimulation and/or remote control over TE constructs. Thus, we originally propose the development of magnetic cell sheets (magCSs) with tenogenic capability, aimed at promoting tendon's regeneration. A Tenomodulin (TNMD+) subpopulation was sorted from human adipose stem cells (hASCs), using TNMD-coated immunomagnetic beads(2) and used as cell source for the development of magCSs. Briefly, cells were labeled with iron oxide composite particles (Micromod) and cultured for 7 days in α-MEM medium with or without magnetic stimulation provided by a magnetic device (nanoTherics). CSs were retrieved from the plates using magnet attraction as contiguous sheets of cells within its own deposited ECM.
