A cellular protease (furin)-mediated graphene-based nanosystem is developed for co-delivery of a membrane-associated cytokine (tumor-necrosis-factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand, TRAIL) and an intracellular-acting small-molecule drug (Doxorubicin, DOX). TRAIL and DOX can be sequentially released toward the plasma membrane and nucleus, respectively.
A significant problem affecting electrospun nanofibrous tissue scaffolds is poor infiltration of cells into their three-dimensional (3D) structure. Environmental and physical manipulation, however, can enhance cellular infiltration into electrospun scaffolds. In this work, RGD-modified alginate mats with increased thickness and porosity were achieved by(More)
