Caged cell-culturing substrate is composed of a glass substrate coated with an alkylsiloxane monolayer having a photocleavable 2-nitrobenzyl group. In the present study, we examined the effect of terminal functional groups on the efficiencies of photoactivation for cell adhesion. Among four tested substrates terminating with different functional groups, the photoactivation of cell adhesion was the most effective on that terminating with an amino group. We succeeded in preparing single-cell arrays on this substrate without using fibronectin.
