If I treat a surface for cell adhesion with fibronectin, collagen, etc., can I autoclave it and expect it to function in allowing the attachment of mammalian cells? Since denatured collagen is used to promote adhesion, it seems like it might be feasible, but I don't know. If this is a less than optimal idea, does anyone know of any alternatives? If anyone has any insight, I'd appreciate it. I'll thank you in advance.
