We engineered functional cardiac patches by seeding neonatal rat cardiomyocytes onto carbon nanotube (CNT)-incorporated photo-cross-linkable gelatin methacrylate (GelMA) hydrogels. The resulting cardiac constructs showed excellent mechanical integrity and advanced electrophysiological functions. Specifically, myocardial tissues cultured on 50 μm thick(More)
Incorporating graphene oxide inside GelMA hydrogels enhances their mechanical properties and reduces UV-induced cell damage while preserving their favorable characteristics for 3D cell encapsulation. NIH-3T3 fibroblasts encapsulated in GO-GelMA microgels demonstrate excellent cellular viability, proliferation, spreading, and alignment. GO reinforcement(More)
BACKGROUND In the past few decades, a number of studies have investigated the association of the wolframin (WFS1) gene H611R polymorphism with mood disorders, but the findings are not always consistent. AIMS The objective of the present study is to assess the association between WFS1 gene H611R polymorphism and mood disorders by using a meta-analysis. (More)
