Mesenchymal stem cell mechanics on osteoinductive peptide nanofibers
(Bilkent University, 2017-08)
In this thesis, changes in Young's modulus of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) were investigated during their osteogenic differentiation on bioactive peptide nanofibers that bear triple glutamic acid sequence (EEE), a ...
Boronic acid conjugated peptide amphiphile systems for controlled drug release
(Bilkent University, 2017-09)
Targeted cancer drug delivery is still under investigation and scientists have been focusing on major differences between healthy and cancer tissue to develop novel effective therapies. The cancer microenvironment has ...
Characterization of self-assembly and self-healing of peptide amphiphiles by atomic force microscopy
(Bilkent University, 2017-11)
Biological feedback mechanisms exert precise control over the initiation and termination of molecular self-assembly in response to environmental stimuli, while minimizing the formation and propagation of defects through ...
