Tissue engineering: development of a cellularly degradable PEG hydrogel to promote articular cartilage extracellular matrix deposition (adv. Healthcare mater. 5/2015). Journal Article uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • A cellularly degradable hydrogel based on peptide and protein functionalized PEG is designed on page 702 by M. A. Randolph, K. S. Anseth, and co-workers to allow local, cell-mediated remodeling in a manner that promotes cartilage extracellular matrix deposition and leads to increased mechanical properties. The cover depicts encapsulated chondrocytes secreting cartilage-specific matrix macromolecules (orange fibers and green branches) that remodel and replace the surrounding synthetic network (white lines).
