Abstract
Methods and compositions are provided for improving tissue growth and device integration in vivo. Substrates and devices coated with an α₂β₁ or α₅β₁ integrin-specific ligand are provided. The substrates and devices coated with an α₂β₁ or α₅β₁ integrin-specific ligand are shown to have greater tissue formation on the surface relative to controls, in particular greater bone formation.
