Angiogenic peptide nanofibers improve wound healing in STZ-induced diabetic rats
(American Chemical Society, 2016-06)
Low expressions of angiogenic growth factors delay the healing of diabetic wounds by interfering with the process of blood vessel formation. Heparin mimetic peptide nanofibers can bind to and enhance production and activity ...
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 ...
Glycosaminoglycan-Mimetic Signals Direct the Osteo/Chondrogenic Differentiation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells in a Three-Dimensional Peptide Nanofiber Extracellular Matrix Mimetic Environment
(American Chemical Society, 2016-02)
Recent efforts in bioactive scaffold development focus strongly on the elucidation of complex cellular responses through the use of synthetic systems. Designing synthetic extracellular matrix (ECM) materials must be based ...
