Enzymatically crosslinked injectable hydrogels based on poly(L-glutamic acid) grafted with tyramine and poly(ethylene glycol) (denoted as PLG-g-TA/PEG) were developed under physiological conditions in the presence of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Their gelation time, mechanical properties, swelling behaviors and porous structure were evaluated. The hydrogels were rapidly formed in the presence of low concentrations of HRP and H2O2. The storage modulus of the… CONTINUE READING
