Caged cell-culturing substrate is composed of a glass substrate immobilized with an alkylsiloxane monolayer having a photocleavable protecting group. This substrate allows to form cell-adhesive regions by UV illumination under a conventional fluorescence microscope. 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. In addition, we demonstrated a facile preparation of single-cell arrays on this substrate.
