Gallium phosphide nanowires as a substrate for cultured neurons

Hällström, Waldemar LU ; Mårtensson, Thomas LU ; Prinz, Christelle LU ; Gustavsson, Per LU ; Montelius, Lars LU ; Samuelson, Lars LU and Kanje, Martin LU (2007) In Nano Letters 7(10). p.2960-2965
Abstract
Dissociated sensory neurons were cultured on epitaxial gallium phosphide (GaP) nanowires grown vertically from a gallium phosphide surface. Substrates covered by 2.5 mu m long, 50 nm wide nanowires supported cell adhesion and axonal outgrowth. Cell survival was better on nanowire substrates than on planar control substrates. The cells interacted closely with the nanostructures, and cells penetrated by hundreds of wires were observed as well as wire bending due to forces exerted by the cells.
