anchorage-dependent cell

[¦aŋ·kə‚rij di¦pen·dənt ′sel]
(cell and molecular biology)
A cell that grows, survives, or maintains function only when attached to an inert surface, such as glass or plastic.

The advantages of using microcarrier for mammalian cells culture production, include increased productivity, reduced cost, labor-saving technique allowing the elimination of hundreds of flasks and reduced risk of contamination compared to other conventional methods.
Serum-free media (SFM) was first used in mammalian cell culture by Ham in 1965; much of the early work involved anchorage-dependent cell lines.
Being similar to the major inorganic component of natural bone, the inorganic compound such as hydroxyapatite (HAp) or a calcium phosphate in a composite scaffold provides good osteoconductivity while the polymer provides the continuous structure and design flexibility to achieve the high porosity and high surface area, which are necessary for anchorage-dependent cells such as osteoblasts to survive and differentiate [1].
Many anchorage-dependent cells can be adapted to grow on micro-carriers to achieve high cell density.
Adhesion of cells is essential procedure to grow and functionalize anchorage-dependent cells. Additionally, this structural similarity helps represent tissue that consists of a mass of cells by 3-dimensional culture [6].
