  • Download Movie_S01 (MP4) - Three-dimensional reconstruction of C2C12-GFP cells in nonaligned or aligned mid G′ aPA scaffolds imaged by confocal microscopy. Live cells were stained with Calcein AM (green) and aPA was stained with propidium iodide (red).
  • Download Movie_S02 (MOV) - Illustratration of how our injection system was used to place a string-like scaffold (blue) by injecting 1 μL of aPA solution into the tibialis anterior (red structure) of mice (not shown for clarity). Once the needle was positioned inside the tibialis anterior, the syringe was retracted at a speed of 2 cm/min using a leadscrew linear actuator. The syringe plunger was fixed in place to allow the retracting syringe to move into the stationary plunger.
