      Çınar, Göksu; Ceylan, Hakan; Urel, Mustafa; Erkal, Turan S.; Tekin, E. Deniz; Tekinay, Ayse B.; Dâna, Aykutlu; Güler, Mustafa O. (American Chemical Society, 2012)
      Amyloid peptides are important components in many degenerative diseases as well as in maintaining cellular metabolism. Their unique stable structure provides new insights in developing new materials. Designing bioinspired ...
    • Bioactive self-assembled peptide nanofibers for corneal stroma regeneration 

      Uzunallı, Gözde; Soran, Zeliha Soran; Erkal, Turan S.; Dagdas, Yavuz S; Dinc, E.; Hondur, A. M.; Bilgihan, K.; Aydin B.; Güler, Mustafa O.; Tekinay, Ayşe B. (Elsevier, 2014)
      Defects in the corneal stroma caused by trauma or diseases such as macular corneal dystrophy and keratoconus can be detrimental for vision. Development of therapeutic methods to enhance corneal regeneration is essential ...
    • Mussel inspired dynamic cross-linking of self-healing peptide nanofiber network 

      Ceylan, Hakan; Urel, Mustafa; Erkal, Turan S.; Tekinay, Ayse B.; Dana, Aykutlu; Güler, Mustafa O. (Wiley, 2013)
      A general drawback of supramolecular peptide networks is their weak mechanical properties. In order to overcome a similar challenge, mussels have adapted to a pH-dependent iron complexation strategy for adhesion and curing. ...
    • Size-controlled conformal nanofabrication of biotemplated three-dimensional TiO2 and ZnO nanonetworks 

      Ceylan, Hakan; Ozgit-Akgun, Çağla; Erkal, Turan S.; Donmez, İnci; Garifullin, Ruslan; Tekinay, Ayse B.; Usta H.; Biyikli, Necmi; Güler, Mustafa O. (Nature, 2013)
      A solvent-free fabrication of TiO2 and ZnO nanonetworks is demonstrated by using supramolecular nanotemplates with high coating conformity, uniformity, and atomic scale size control. Deposition of TiO2 and ZnO on ...
    • Slow release and delivery of antisense oligonucleotide drug by self-assembled peptide amphiphile nanofibers 

      Bulut, Selma; Erkal, Turan S.; Toksoz, Sıla; Tekinay, Ayse B.; Tekinay, Turgay; Güler, Mustafa O. (American Chemical Society, 2011)
      Antisense oligonucleotides provide a promising therapeutic approach for several disorders including cancer. Chemical stability, controlled release, and intracellular delivery are crucial factors determining their efficacy. ...
