Electrospun nanofibers functionalized with cyclodextrins and their potential applications
(The Fiber Society, 2012)
A glycosaminoglycan mimetic peptide nanofiber gel as an osteoinductive scaffold
(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 ...
Electrospinning of nanofibers from non-polymeric systems : electrospun nanofibers from native cyclodextrins
Electrospinning of nanofibers from non-polymeric systems is rather challenging, yet in this study, we have successfully performed electrospinning of nanofibers from two of the native cyclodextrins (CDs); α-CD and β-CD. ...
Spatial organization of functional groups on bioactive supramolecular glycopeptide nanofibers for differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to brown adipogenesis
(American Chemical Society, 2016-12)
Spatial organization of bioactive moieties in biological materials has significant impact on the function and efficiency of these systems. Here, we demonstrate the effect of spatial organization of functional groups including ...
Angiogenic heparin-mimetic peptide nanofiber gel improves regenerative healing of acute wounds
(American Chemical Society, 2017)
Wound repair in adult mammals typically ends with the formation of a scar, which prevents full restoration of the function of the healthy tissue, although most of the wounded skin heals. Rapid and functional recovery of ...
Encapsulation of active agents in electrospun nanofibers/nanowebs
(The Fiber Society, 2013)
In this study, we produce functional nanofibers/nanowebs containing active agents such as essential oils, antibacterials, antioxidants, flavors/fragrances via electrospinning technique. The encapsulation of these active ...
Multivalent presentation of cationic peptides on supramolecular nanofibers for antimicrobial activity
(American Chemical Society, 2017)
Noncovalent and electrostatic interactions facilitate the formation of complex networks through molecular self-assembly in biomolecules such as proteins and glycosaminoglycans. Self-assembling peptide amphiphiles (PA) are ...
Supramolecular chirality in self-assembled peptide amphiphile nanostructures
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015)
Induced supramolecular chirality was investigated in the self-assembled peptide amphiphile (PA) nanosystems. Having shown that peptide chirality can be transferred to the covalently-attached achiral pyrene moiety upon PA ...
Electrospun nanofibers from cyclodextrin inclusion complexes with cineole and p-cymene: enhanced water solubility and thermal stability
(Blackwell Publishing, 2018)
The electrospinning of self-standing nanofibrous webs from inclusion complexes (IC) of cineole and p-cymene with two modified cyclodextrins (HPβCD, HPγCD) was achieved without using carrier polymeric matrix. Although they ...
Heparin mimetic peptide nanofiber gel promotes regeneration of full thickness burn injury
(Elsevier Ltd, 2017)
Burn injuries are one of the most common types of trauma worldwide, and their unique physiology requires the development of specialized therapeutic materials for their treatment. Here, we report the use of synthetic, ...
