Abstract

The simple and safety method for removing mesenchymal tissue from the extracted submandibular gland (SMG) tissue is required for the in vitro study of SMG tissue development. For this purpose, we fabricated polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) tissue culture substrate having micropillar structure. By applying O 2 plasma treatment and fibronectin coating, the surface affinity of PDMS substrate for cell and tissue was improved. Moreover, the pillar structure showed more effective to remove the mesenchymal tissue from isolated SMG tissue. Thus, the micro-fabricated surface with suitable chemical and physical modification is effective to remove mesenchymal tissue from extracted SMG tissue.
