Design of a synthetic collagen-binding peptidoglycan that modulates collagen fibrillogenesis.

Abstract

The ubiquity of collagen in mammalian tissues, with its host of structural and chemical functions, has motivated its research in many fields, including tissue engineering. The organization of collagen is known to affect cell behavior and the resulting structural integrity of tissues or tissue engineered scaffolds. Of particular interest are proteoglycan (PG… (More)
