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 ...
Self-assembled peptide nanostructure delivery sytems for oligonucleotide therapy
(Bilkent University, 2014-06)
Oligonucleotides are potent therapeutic agents in the treatment of cancer, metabolic, cardiovascular and various hereditary diseases. Despite their great potential, oligonucleotide-based drugs have failed in clinical and ...
