We used biomimetic films of controlled stiffness presenting matrix-bound BMPs (Bone Morphogenetic Proteins) to study the effect of four BMPs on cell adhesion and differentiation of skeletal progenitors. This is the first study of cell signaling using the biomimetic films, where unsuspected effects of BMP proteins that were previously masked by cell culture conditions are revealed thanks to the biomaterial of controlled stiffness.
