Elastin-like recombinamer catalyst-free click gels: characterization of poroelastic and intrinsic viscoelastic properties.
Elastin-like recombinamer catalyst-free click gels (ELR-CFCGs) have been prepared and characterized by modifying both a structural ELR (VKVx24) and a biofunctionalized ELR-bearing RGD cell-adhesionExpand
“Recombinamers” as advanced materials for the post-oil age
Biotechnology offers powerful solutions to the challenges that arise during the design and development of new complex biomimetic materials to achieve specific biological responses. Recombinant DNAExpand
Developing functionality in elastin-like polymers by increasing their molecular complexity: the power of the genetic engineering approach
Abstract In spite of the enormous possibilities presented by macromolecules for the development of advanced materials with increased functionality, the achievement of functionality is often limitedExpand
Design and bioproduction of a recombinant multi(bio)functional elastin-like protein polymer containing cell adhesion sequences for tissue engineering purposes
Genetic engineering techniques were used to design and biosynthesise an extracellular matrix (ECM) analogue. This was designed with a well-defined molecular architecture comprising differentExpand
Biocompatible elastin-like click gels: design, synthesis and characterization
Elastin-like recombinamer click gels (ELR-CGs) for biomedical applications, such as drug delivery or tissue engineering, have been developed by taking advantage of the click reaction (CuAAC) in theExpand
The effect of NaCl on the self-assembly of elastin-like block co-recombinamers: Tuning the size of micelles and vesicles
Abstract Herein we present a study of the effect of the addition of NaCl on the size and shape of thermally driven elastin-like block co-recombinamer (ELbcRs) self-assembled nano-objects. ManyExpand
Thermoresponsive multilayer films based on ionic elastin-like recombinamers
Thermoresponsive multilayer films consisting of ionic elastin-like recombinamers (ELRs) were prepared using a layer-by-layer technique on model substrates. The ELR polymer containing lysine unitsExpand
Preparation of N-unsubstituted β-ketoamides by Rhodococcus rhodochrous-catalysed hydration of β-ketonitriles
Abstract A varied set of N-unsubstituted β-ketoamides, hardly obtainable or non-accessible by non-enzymatic methods, have been synthesized, with good to excellent yields, by the generally fastExpand
Synthesis of optically active β′-hydroxy-β-enaminoketones via enzymatic resolution of carbinols derived from 3,5-disubstituted isoxazoles
Abstract The preparation of several enantiomerically pure β′-hydroxy-β-enaminoketones from the corresponding isoxazolic carbinols, which have been obtained by enzymatic kinetic resolution of theExpand
