Improving pancreatic islet in vitro functionality and transplantation efficiency by using heparin mimetic peptide nanofiber gels
Pancreatic islet transplantation is a promising treatment for type 1 diabetes. However, viability and functionality of the islets after transplantation are limited due to loss of integrity and destruction of blood vessel ...
Peptide nanofiber scaffolds for multipotent stromal cell culturing
(Humana Press Inc., 2013)
Self-assembled peptide nanofibers are versatile materials providing suitable platforms for regenerative medicine applications. This chapter describes the use of peptide nanofibers as extracellular matrix mimetic scaffolds ...
Extracellular matrix mimetic peptide scaffolds for neural stem cell culture and differentiation
(Humana Press, 2014)
Self-assembled peptide nanofibers form three-dimensional networks that are quite similar to fibrous extracellular matrix (ECM) in their physical structure. By incorporating short peptide sequences derived from ECM proteins, ...
Bioactive self-assembled peptide nanofibers for corneal stroma regeneration
Defects in the corneal stroma caused by trauma or diseases such as macular corneal dystrophy and keratoconus can be detrimental for vision. Development of therapeutic methods to enhance corneal regeneration is essential ...
Peptide-based materials for cartilage tissue regeneration
(Springer New York LLC, 2017)
Cartilaginous tissue requires structural and metabolic support after traumatic or chronic injuries because of its limited capacity for regeneration. However, current techniques for cartilage regeneration are either invasive ...
Biocompatible electroactive tetra (aniline)-conjugated peptide nanofibers for neural differentiation
(American Chemical Society, 2018)
Peripheral nerve injuries cause devastating problems for the quality of patients' lives, and regeneration following damage to the peripheral nervous system is limited depending on the degree of the damage. Use of ...
