Three-Dimensional Laminin Mimetic Peptide Nanofiber Gels for In Vitro Neural Differentiation
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2017)
The extracellular matrix (ECM) provides biochemical signals and structural support for cells, and its functional imitation is a fundamental aspect of biomaterial design for regenerative medicine applications. The stimulation ...
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 ...
Local delivery of doxorubicin through supramolecular peptide amphiphile nanofiber gels
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
Peptide amphiphiles (PAs) self-assemble into supramolecular nanofiber gels that provide a suitable environment for encapsulation of both hydrophobic and hydrophilic molecules. The PA gels have significant advantages for ...
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 ...
Angiogenic peptide nanofibers repair cardiac tissue defect after myocardial infarction
(Acta Materialia Inc, 2017)
Myocardial infarction remains one of the top leading causes of death in the world and the damage sustained in the heart eventually develops into heart failure. Limited conventional treatment options due to the inability ...
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, ...
