An aligned thin collagen gel culture system is recently developed in which cardiac myocytes develop a phenotype similar to the in vivo situation. Confocal microscopy and electron microscopy were respectively used. Results indicate the phenotype of myocytes cultured on thin collagen gels that resemble that of in vivo myocytes will improve in vitro model for controlled investigation of the intrinsic and extrinsic factors which affect cardiac myocyte morphogenesis.
