Multiple functionalities of polyelectrolyte multilayer films: new biomedical applications.
The design of advanced functional materials with nanometer- and micrometer-scale control over their properties is of considerable interest for both fundamental and applied studies because of the manyExpand
Polyelectrolyte multilayer films of controlled stiffness modulate myoblast cells differentiation.
Beside chemical properties and topographical features, mechanical properties of gels have been recently demonstrated to play an important role in various cellular processes, including cellExpand
Layer-by-layer films as a biomimetic reservoir for rhBMP-2 delivery: controlled differentiation of myoblasts to osteoblasts.
Efficient delivery of growth or survival factors to cells is one of the most important long-term challenges of current cell-based tissue engineering strategies. The extracellular matrix acts as aExpand
Surface-Adaptive Gold Nanoparticles with Effective Adherence and Enhanced Photothermal Ablation of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Biofilm.
Biofilms that contribute to the persistent bacterial infections pose serious threats to global public health, mainly due to their resistance to antibiotics penetration and escaping innate immuneExpand
Mussel-inspired polydopamine: a biocompatible and ultrastable coating for nanoparticles in vivo.
Bioinspired polydopamine (PDA) has served as a universal coating to nanoparticles (NPs) for various biomedical applications. However, one remaining critical question is whether the PDA shell on NPsExpand
Construction of degradable multilayer films for enhanced antibacterial properties.
Infections associated with medical devices have become a major concern. The adhesion of bacteria to the devices' surfaces during the initial 24 h is believed to be a "decisive period" forExpand
Fast and long-acting antibacterial properties of chitosan-Ag/polyvinylpyrrolidone nanocomposite films.
Infection associated with medical devices is one of the most frequent complications of modern medical biomaterials. Preparation of antibacterial films on the medical devices is a great challengeExpand
β3 integrin–mediated spreading induced by matrix-bound BMP-2 controls Smad signaling in a stiffness-independent manner
Matrix-bound BMP-2 is sufficient to induce β3 integrin–dependent, Cdc42/Src/FAK/ILK-mediated cell spreading by overriding the stiffness response through actin and adhesion site dynamics, showing BMPExpand
Enhanced retention and cellular uptake of nanoparticles in tumors by controlling their aggregation behavior.
Effective accumulation of nanoparticles (NPs) in tumors is crucial for NP-assisted cancer diagnosis and treatment. With the hypothesis that aggregation of NPs stimulated by tumor microenvironment canExpand
Surface engineering of cardiovascular stent with endothelial cell selectivity for in vivo re-endothelialisation.
The in vivo endothelialisation of materials provides a promising strategy for the rapid re-endothelialisation of a cardiovascular implantation. Although many studies have focused on improving theExpand
