Polysaccharide-poly(ethylene glycol) star copolymer as a scaffold for the production of bioactive hydrogels.

The production of polysaccharide-derivatized surfaces, polymers, and biomaterials has been shown to be a useful strategy for mediating the biological properties of materials, owing to the importance of polysaccharides for the sequestration and protection of bioactive proteins in vivo. We have therefore sought to combine the benefits of polysaccharide… CONTINUE READING
