In this study, poly-ε-caprolactone (PCL) membranes were modified with the cell adhesive peptide RGD by chemical immobilization technique. The roughness and hydrophilicity were increased after RGD immobilization and an improved cell attachment was observed. © 2006 Springer Science + Business Media, LLC.
