Numerous approaches have been described for modifying biomaterials to incorporate extracellular matrix components. "Peptide-amphiphiles", whereby monoalkyl hydrocarbon chains are covalently linked to peptide sequences, have been shown previously to (a) form specific molecular architecture with enhanced stability and (b) promote cell adhesion, spreading, and… CONTINUE READING
