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 ...
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 ...
