Bioengineers at Penn State have discovered that ‘citrate’, a chemical based biomaterial on natural product of the bones and citrus fruit can provide extra energy essential for stem cells to construct new bone tissue. According to the researchers, new understanding of the mechanism that enables citrate to promote bone regeneration could help scientists around the world to develop biodegradable, citrate-releasing scaffolds to act as a template for bone development that
