Scaffolds are used for bioengineering to regulate cellular functions. Previously, we developed laminin-derived peptide-conjugated chitosan membranes for cell engineering. Here, we determined whether changes in the chitosan scaffold altered the cellular response. When an alphavbeta3 integrin-binding peptide A99a (ALRGDN) was conjugated on chitosan membranes(More)
Laminin alpha1 chain LG4 module is multifunctional and interacts with syndecans and integrin alpha2beta1 via AG73 (RKRLQVQLSIRT) and EF-I (DYATLQLQEGRLHFMFDLG) sites, respectively. Here, we conjugated the AG73 and EF1zz (ATLQLQEGRLHFXFDLGKGR, X: Nle) peptides on a chitosan membrane in various ratios to develop an LG4 mimic biomaterial. The AG73-chitosan(More)
Laminin-111, a multifunctional matrix protein, has diverse biological functions. Previously, we have identified various biologically active sequences in laminin-111 by a systematic peptide screening. We also demonstrated that peptide-conjugated chitosan matrices enhance the biological functions of the active sequences and are useful as a scaffold. Here, we(More)
Laminins are a multifunctional molecule with numerous active sites that have been identified in short peptide sequences. Mixed peptide-conjugated chitosan membranes using laminin-derived active peptides have been previously demonstrated to be useful as a biomaterial for tissue engineering. In this study, two syndecan-binding peptides, AG73 (RKRLQVQLSIRT)(More)
