Abstract

A 2013 Perspective in Science titled 'Deconstructing Dimensionality' noted the importance of fiber morphology on cell phenotype, concluding with the statement 'Identifying the mechanisms by which cells assess the nature of their environment will advance basic cell biology and facilitate the development of synthetic matrices for specific tissue engineering applications.' Nanofibers have revolutionized scaffold-based approaches for musculoskeletal tissues; demonstrating surprising efficacy over promoting mesenchymal stem cell, MSC, differentiation down multiple musculoskeletal lineages. Understanding the fundamental mechanisms involved will allow the future design of nanofiber-based scaffolds to target a lineage with specificity. This article focuses on how three geometry sensors: focal adhesions, membrane associated vesicle stabilizing and trafficking proteins, and adherens junctions; potentially regulate MSC lineage commitment in response to bio-instructive nanofibers.
