Growth characteristics of low-passage poorly-differentiated, high-grade human MEC cells cultured in 3D APA microcapsule microenvironments. A Representative macroscopic images of cell-loaded APA capsules 24 h after cell microencapsulation. B Representative stereomicroscopic images of cell-loaded APA capsules 7 days after culture. C Representative SEM images of the inner surfaces of cell-loaded APA capsules. D Cell viabilities of passage 10 poorly-differentiated human MEC cells cultured in 2D and 3D. Three independent repeats, with each triplicates, were performed. 2D vs. 3D: # P < 0.05; ## P < 0.01
