The development of biomaterials for regenerating neurons from induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells is crucial to the potential therapy for traumatic injury to nervous system. This study aims to guide differentiation of iPS cells into neuron-lineage cells in inverted colloidal crystal (ICC) scaffolds containing alginate, poly(γ-glutamic acid), and surface CSRARKQAASIKVAVSADR (peptide). The differentiation of iPS cells in ICC constructs was characterized by staining of embryonic and neuronal… CONTINUE READING
