Construction of degradable multilayer films for enhanced antibacterial properties.
A system combining the adhesion resistance and the contact killing properties shows an enhanced antibacterial capability through targeting the "decisive period" of implantation, which may have great potential for applications in medical implants, tissue engineering, etc. Expand
Direct adhesion of endothelial cells to bioinspired poly(dopamine) coating through endogenous fibronectin and integrin α5 β1.
It is found that HUVECs can attach directly to and spread with well-organized cytoskeleton and fibrillar adhesions on the PDA surface, whereas cells adhere poorly to and barely spread on the control polycaprolactone surface. Expand
Facile fabrication of robust superhydrophobic multilayered film based on bioinspired poly(dopamine)-modified carbon nanotubes.
A robust thin superhydrophobic film has been created by using layer-by-layer assembly of the carbon nanotubes wrapped by poly(dopamine) (CNT@PDA) and poly(ethyleneimine) (PEI) and showed excellent resistance against the adhesion of both platelets and Escherichia coli. Expand
Giant room-temperature magnetodielectric coupling in spark plasma sintered brownmillerite ceramics
The dielectric, magnetic, and magnetodielectric properties of Ca2FeAO5+δ (A = Al, Ga) ceramics were investigated together with their crystal structures. Rietveld refinement of the X-ray diffractionExpand
Electropolymerization of dopamine for surface modification of complex-shaped cardiovascular stents.
It is demonstrated that electropolymerization of dopamine is a facile and versatile approach to surface tailoring of metallic cardiovascular stents, such as small and complex-shaped coronary stent, and may find applications in the area of metallic surface engineering. Expand
Chitosan/poly (vinyl pyrollidone) coatings improve the antibacterial properties of poly(ethylene terephthalate)
Abstract Chitosan/poly (vinyl pyrollidone) (CHI/PVP) coatings were prepared to improve the antibacterial properties of poly (ethylene terephthalate) (PET) by a simple dip-coating method. The bindingExpand
Surface-mediated transfection of a pDNA vector encoding short hairpin RNA to downregulate TGF-β1 expression for the prevention of in-stent restenosis.
In vivo experiments showed that the transfection of arterial tissue led to significant local downregulation of TGF-β1 and ECM proteins and inhibited neointimal hyperplasia, and these functional gene delivery films may serve as part of a new strategy for targeting in-stent restenosis in the field of cardiovascular disease.

Surface-mediated functional gene delivery: an effective strategy for enhancing competitiveness of endothelial cells over smooth muscle cells.
The results collectively demonstrate that the surface-mediated functional gene delivery through layer-by-layer self-assembly of protamine sulfate and plasmid DNA encoding hepatocyte growth factor can be served as a powerful tool for enhancing competitiveness of EC over SMC, which opens perspectives for the regulation of intercellular competitiveness in the field of interventional therapy.

Electrochemically controlled stiffness of multilayers for manipulation of cell adhesion.
An electrochemical redox multilayer with tunable stiffness is constructed through the layer-by-layer self-assembly method, resulting reversible change of elastic modulus of the multilayers. Expand
Surface modulation of complex stiffness via layer-by-layer assembly as a facile strategy for selective cell adhesion.
This study presents an approach to enhance EC competitiveness over that of SMC through the selective EC adhesion, which is achieved by modulating a complex surface stiffness based on the technique of layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly. Expand
