|Abstract||In vitro endothelial cell (EC) seeding onto biomaterials for blood-contacting applications can improve the blood compatibility of materials. Adhesive proteins adsorbed from serum that is supplemented with the culture medium intercede the initial cell adhesion and subsequent spreading on material surface during culture. Nevertheless, physical and chemical properties of vascular biomaterial surface fluctuate widely between materials resulting in dissimilarity in protein adsorption characteristics. Thus, a variation is expected in cell adhesion, growth and the ability of cell to resist shear stress when tissue engineering on to vascular biomaterials is attempted. This study was carried out with an objective to determine the significance of a matrix coating on cell adhesion and shear stress resistance when cells are cultured on materials such as polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE, Teflon) and polyethyleneterephthalate (Dacron), ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) and titanium (Ti), that are used for prosthetic devices. The study illustrates the distinction of EC attachment and proliferation between uncoated and matrix-coated surfaces. The cell attachment and proliferation on uncoated UHMWPE and titanium surfaces were not significantly different from matrix-coated surfaces. However, shear stress resistance of the cells grown on composite coated surfaces appeared superior compared to the cells grown on uncoated surface. On uncoated vascular graft materials, the cell adhesion was not supported by serum alone and proliferation was scanty as compared to matrix-coated surface. Therefore, coating of implant devices with a composite of adhesive proteins and growth factors can improve EC attachment and resistance of the cells to the forces of flow.

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
