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
Elastin-Based Materials: Promising Candidates for Cardiac Tissue Regeneration
Stroke and cardiovascular episodes are still some of the most common diseases worldwide, causing millions of deaths and costing billions of Euros to healthcare systems. The use of new biomaterialsExpand
Multiple-Step Injection Molding for Fibrin-Based Tissue-Engineered Heart Valves
Heart valves are elaborate and highly heterogeneous structures of the circulatory system. Despite the well accepted relationship between the structural and mechanical anisotropy and the optimalExpand
Control of angiogenesis and host response by modulating the cell adhesion properties of an Elastin-Like Recombinamer-based hydrogel.
The control of the in vivo vascularization of engineered tissue substitutes is essential in order to obtain either a rapid induction or a complete inhibition of the process (e.g. in muscles andExpand
Biocompatibility of two model elastin‐like recombinamer‐based hydrogels formed through physical or chemical cross‐linking for various applications in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine
Biocompatibility studies, especially innate immunity induction, in vitro and in vivo cytotoxicity, and fibrosis, are often lacking for many novel biomaterials including recombinant protein‐basedExpand
Random and oriented electrospun fibers based on a multicomponent, in situ clickable elastin-like recombinamer system for dermal tissue engineering.
Herein we present a system to obtain fibers from clickable elastin-like recombinamers (ELRs) that crosslink in situ during the electrospinning process itself, with no need for any further treatmentExpand
Use of proteolytic sequences with different cleavage kinetics as a way to generate hydrogels with preprogrammed cell-infiltration patterns imparted over their given 3D spatial structure.
Control over biodegradation processes is crucial to generate advanced functional structures with a more interactive and efficient role for biomedical applications. Herein, a simple, high-throughputExpand
Nanogel formation from dilute solutions of clickable elastin-like recombinamers and its dependence on temperature: two fractal gelation modes.
Diluted, complementary, click-reactive elastin-like recombinamer (ELR) solutions have been prepared and mixed at two different temperatures, one below and one above the characteristic transitionExpand
Hybrid elastin-like recombinamer-fibrin gels: physical characterization and in vitro evaluation for cardiovascular tissue engineering applications.
In the field of tissue engineering, the properties of the scaffolds are of crucial importance for the success of the application. Hybrid materials combine the properties of the different componentsExpand
An elastin-like recombinamer-based bioactive hydrogel embedded with mesenchymal stromal cells as an injectable scaffold for osteochondral repair
Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate injectable, in situ cross-linkable elastin-like recombinamers (ELRs) for osteochondral repair. Both the ELR-based hydrogel alone and the ELR-basedExpand
