Supramolecular peptide nanofiber morphology affects mechanotransduction of stem cells
(American Chemical Society, 2017-08)
Chirality and morphology are essential factors for protein function and interactions with other biomacromolecules. Extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins are also similar to other proteins in this sense; however, the complexity ...
Diabetic wound regeneration using heparin-mimetic peptide amphiphile gel in db/db mice
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
There is an urgent need for more efficient treatment of chronic wounds in diabetic patients especially with a high risk of leg amputation. Biomaterials capable of presenting extracellular matrix-mimetic signals may assist ...
Antigenic GM3 lactone mimetic molecule integrated mannosylated glycopeptide nanofibers for the activation and maturation of dendritic cells
(American Chemical Society, 2017)
The ability of dendritic cells to coordinate innate and adaptive immune responses makes them essential targets for vaccination strategies. Presentation of specific antigens by dendritic cells is required for the activation ...
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 ...
