In the field of regenerative medicine we aim to develop implant matrices for specific tissue needs. By combining two per se, cell-permissive gel systems with enzymatic crosslinkers (gelatin/transglutaminase and fibrinogen/thrombin) to generate a blend (technical term: quattroGel), an unexpected cell-selectivity evolved. QuattroGels were porous and formed(More)
Lesions of the central nervous system elicit inflammatory responses that counteract the regeneration of neurites. Microglia and infiltrating macrophages that were activated by trauma have been identified as cellular sources of inhibitory factors. We examine cultured macrophage (RAW264.7) and neuronal (PC12) cell lines to ascertain the potential modulators(More)
