Temperature has been extensively explored as a trigger to control the delivery of a payload from environment-sensitive polymers. The need for an external heat source only allows limited spatiotemporal control over the delivery process. We propose a new approach by using the dissipative properties of a hydrogel matrix as an internal heat source when the(More)
This contribution describes the preparation of nonfouling polypeptide brushes via surface-initiated ring-opening polymerization of oligo(ethylene glycol) modified L-lysine N-carboxyanhydrides. Circular dichroism experiments indicated that these surface-anchored polypeptide chains assume an α-helical conformation, which does not change between pH 4 and 9.(More)
An optical method is presented that allows the measurement of the triplet lifetime of a fluorescent molecule. This is a characteristic specific to each fluorophore. Based on differences in triplet lifetimes of two fluorescent species (autofluorescence versus label), this novel approach measures relative quantities of a transmembrane receptor and associated(More)
(BLI) were performed to detect GFP and fLUC positive cells, respectively. For in vivo tracking, wounds created on the hind paws of rats received either a single injection of ASCs systemically into the tail vein (2x106 ASCs) or locally into each wound (105 ASCs). ASC distribution was followed in animals by BLI 3h and 48h post ASC injection. Results: In vitro(More)
Hydrophilic/hydrophobic patterning is a powerful strategy to control folding in non-natural polymers/oligomers. In this contribution, we present a novel strategy for the preparation of alternating hydrophilic/hydrophobic patterned non-natural peptide foldamers. This strategy relies on the post-modification of a reactive peptide precursor that can be(More)
The present work describes synthetic concepts for the coupling of peptides to polyphenylene dendrimers (PPDs). Novel functionalized cyclopentadienones have been synthesized whose Diels-Alder cycloaddition with various core molecules leads to polyphenylene dendrimers possessing (protected) amino or carboxyl groups. In addition, the resulting functionalized(More)
