Abstract

Mechanical conditioning of many tissue engineered construct will be critical, particularly mechano-responsive tissues such as skeletal muscle. It has been shown that application of defined uniaxial loads to 3D constructs through the tensioning- culture force monitor (t-CFM), has been shown to regulate protease expression in fibroblasts (Prajapati et al. 2000). Insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) is an important growth factor in proliferation and differentiation of skeletal myoblasts (Florini et al. 1996), along with it a recently isolated isoform, mechano-growth factor (MGF) is found to be upregulated in skeletal muscle in vivo following exercise (Yang et al. 1996).
