    • Development and characterization of peptide nanofibers for cartilage regeneration 

      Yaylacı, Seher (Bilkent University, 2015-09)
      Articular cartilage is a tissue that is continuously exposed to cyclical compressive stresses, but exhibits no capacity for self-healing following trauma. Cartilage has a dense extracellular matrix that is sparsely ...
    • Materials for articular cartilage regeneration 

      Tombuloglu, Ayşegül; Tekinay, Ayşe B.; Guler, Mustafa O. (Bentham Science Publishers B.V., 2012)
      Many health problems remaining to be untreatable throughout the human history can be overcome by utilizing new biomedical materials. Healing cartilage defects is one of the problems causing significant health issue due to ...
    • Peptide-based materials for cartilage tissue regeneration 

      Hastar, Nurcan; Arslan, Elif.; Guler, Mustafa O.; Tekinay, Ayse B. (Springer New York LLC, 2017)
      Cartilaginous tissue requires structural and metabolic support after traumatic or chronic injuries because of its limited capacity for regeneration. However, current techniques for cartilage regeneration are either invasive ...
    • Supramolecular GAG-like self-assembled glycopeptide nanofibers Induce chondrogenesis and cartilage regeneration 

      Yaylaci, U. S.; Ekiz, M. S.; Arslan, E.; Can, N.; Kilic, E.; Ozkan, H.; Orujalipoor, I.; Ide, S.; Tekinay, A. B.; Guler, M. O. (American Chemical Society, 2016)
      Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and glycoproteins are vital components of the extracellular matrix, directing cell proliferation, differentiation, and migration and tissue homeostasis. Here, we demonstrate supramolecular GAG-like ...
    • Therapeutic nanomaterials for cartilage regeneration 

      Arslan, Elif; Üstün Yaylacı, Seher; Güler, Mustafa O.; Tekinay, Ayşe B. (John Wiley & Sons, 2016-03-11)
      Articular cartilage (AC) is the main focus of this chapter and indeed most cartilage regeneration studies, since it is commonly affected by diseases and traumatic injuries that necessitate its therapeutic regeneration. ...
