This project explored using dermal fibroblast-derived extracellular matrices (ECMs) to recapitulate the keratinocyte microenvironmental niche in vitro. The data indicated that fibroblast-derived matrices better supported keratinocytes expansion than substrates of type I collagen. ECM composition was found to profoundly alter the gene expression profiles of keratinocytes grown on these matrices, in that foetal matrices triggered expression of cell cycle genes, whereas adult matrices triggered the expression of a balance of differentiation and cell cycle genes.

In Vitro Expansion of Keratinocytes on Human Dermal Fibroblast-Derived Matrix Retains Their Stem-Like CharacteristicsWong, C.; Kinnear, B.; Sobota, R.; Ramalingam, R.; Legrand, C.; Dye, Danielle; Raghunath, M.; Lane, B.; Coombe, D. (2018)The long-term expansion of keratinocytes under serum- and feeder free conditions generally results in diminished proliferation and an increased commitment to terminal differentiation. Here we present a serum and xenogeneic ...
Fabrication and Evaluation of Electrospun Silk Fibroin/Halloysite Nanotube Biomaterials for Soft Tissue RegenerationMohammadzadehmoghadam, Soheila; LeGrand, Catherine F; Dong, Yu; Wong, Chee-Wai; Kinnear, Beverley F; Dong, Roger ; Coombe, Deirdre R (2022)The production of nanofibrous materials for soft tissue repair that resemble extracellular matrices (ECMs) is challenging. Electrospinning uniquely produces scaffolds resembling the ultrastructure of natural ECMs. Herein, ...
