Saccharide-peptide hydrogels have been developed in our laboratory as new synthetic extracellular matrices for regenerative medicine applications. In this work, we have expanded on our previously reported system and applied copolymerization of cysteine (Cys) and vinyl sulfone (VS)-functionalized saccharide-peptide polymers via Michael-type addition for… CONTINUE READING
