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
Biocompatible elastin-like click gels: design, synthesis and characterization
Elastin-like recombinamer click gels (ELR-CGs) for biomedical applications, such as drug delivery or tissue engineering, have been developed by taking advantage of the click reaction (CuAAC) in theExpand
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
Recombinant DNA technology and click chemistry: a powerful combination for generating a hybrid elastin-like-statherin hydrogel to control calcium phosphate mineralization
Understanding the mechanisms responsible for generating different phases and morphologies of calcium phosphate by elastin-like recombinamers is supreme for bioengineering of advanced multifunctionalExpand
Formation of calcium phosphate nanostructures under the influence of self-assembling hybrid elastin-like-statherin recombinamers
The self-assembling properties of thermally-sensitive amphiphilic elastin-like multiblock recombinamers have been combined with the capacities of calcium phosphate binding of the SNA15 epitopeExpand
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
Evolution of amphiphilic elastin-like co-recombinamer morphologies from micelles to a lyotropic hydrogel
Abstract An amphiphilic, heat-sensitive, elastin-like co-recombinamer that exhibits different self-assembled concentration-dependent morphologies in aqueous solution has been studied. The sphericalExpand
Spatial control and cell adhesion selectivity on model gold surfaces grafted with elastin-like recombinamers
Abstract A simple system for cell selectivity and spatially controlled cell adhesion has been developed using model gold surfaces grafted with a combination of two ELRs containing into their backboneExpand
Genetically engineered elastin-like recombinamers with sequence-based molecular stabilization as advanced bioinks for 3D bioprinting
A novel smart material based on elastin-like recombinamers (ELRs) has been developed by molecularly programming its sequence to exhibit a sequential three-stage gelation process, thus providing printing attributes. Expand
Recombinant AMP/Polypeptide Self-Assembled Monolayers with Synergistic Antimicrobial Properties for Bacterial Strains of Medical Relevance.
Nosocomial infections are one of the most frequent causes of indwelling biomedical device failure. In this regard, the use of antibiofilm nanocoatings based on antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) is aExpand
