    • Alkaline phosphatase-mimicking peptide nanofibers for osteogenic differentiation 

      Gulseren, G.; Yasa, I. C.; Ustahuseyin, O.; Tekin, E. D.; Tekinay, A. B.; Guler, M. O. (American Chemical Society, 2015)
      Recognition of molecules and regulation of extracellular matrix synthesis are some of the functions of enzymes in addition to their catalytic activity. While a diverse array of enzyme-like materials have been developed, ...
    • Bioactive peptide nanofibers for bone tissue regeneration 

      Tansık, Gülistan (Bilkent University, 2017-06)
      Replacement and repair of bone tissue that is lost due to fractures, tumor resection, degenerative diseases and infections still remain major clinical challenges. Autografting, allografting and xenografting are the current ...
    • Chemical and topographical modification of PHBV surface to promote osteoblast alignment and confinement 

      Kenar, H.; Kocabas, A.; Aydinli, A.; Hasirci, V. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2008)
      Proper cell attachment and distribution, and thus stronger association in vivo between a bone implant and native tissue will improve the success of the implant. In this study, the aim was to achieve promotion of attachment ...
    • A glycosaminoglycan mimetic peptide nanofiber gel as an osteoinductive scaffold 

      Tansik, G.; Kilic, E.; Beter, M.; Demiralp, B.; K.Sendur, G.; Can, N.; Ozkan, H.; Ergul, E.; Guler, M. O.; Tekinay, A. B. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016)
      Biomineralization of the extracellular matrix (ECM) plays a crucial role in bone formation. Functional and structural biomimetic native bone ECM components can therefore be used to change the fate of stem cells and induce ...
