  • Curcumin, a natural phenolic compound derived from the plant Curcuma longa, was physically entrapped and stabilized in silk hydrogel films, and its influence on human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hBMSC) was assessed related to adipogenic differentiation. The presence of curcumin significantly reduced the silk gelation time and changed the porous morphology of gel matrix, but did not change the formation of the silk beta-sheet structure. Based on spectrofluorimetric analysis… CONTINUE READING
