Hyaluronan is particularly attractive for tissue engineering and repair because it: (1) is a normal component of the extracellular matrices of most mammalian tissues; (2) contributes to the biological and physical functions of these tissues; and (3) possesses excellent biocompatibility and physiochemical properties. In the present study, we characterize a two-step enzymatic cross-linking chemistry for production of tyramine-based hyaluronan hydrogels using fluorophore-assisted carbohydrate… Expand
Fabrication of cell-compatible hyaluronan hydrogels with a wide range of biophysical properties through high tyramine functionalization.
TLDR
The iterative use of 4-(4,6-dimethoxy-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)-4-methylmorpholinium chloride (DMTMM) as a coupling agent increased the yields of tyramine functionalization, which was reflected by a two-fold increase in Young's modulus of HA-Tyr hydrogels. Expand
Precise tailoring of tyramine-based hyaluronan hydrogel properties using DMTMM conjugation.
TLDR
The advantages of DMTMM conjugation as a powerful tool to synthesize HA-Tyr hydrogels with properties exactly tailored for biomedical applications are demonstrated. Expand

TLDR
Five homo-bifunctional PEG derivatives were synthesized and examined as cross-linking agents for thiol-modified derivatives of hyaluronan (HA), and addition of the cross-linkers to cell culture medium showed minimal cytotoxicity toward primary human dermal fibroblasts at concentrations anticipated during in situ cross- linking. Expand
The structure and function of hyaluronan: An overview.
TLDR
Many more or less well documented hypotheses have been proposed for the function of hyaluronan in joints, for example, that it should lubricate, protect cartilage surfaces, scavenge free radicals and debris, keep the joint cavities open, form flow barriers in the synovium and prevent capillary growth.

TLDR
Hylan gel was injected intradermally and subdermally in mice and was found to produce a minimal reaction at 24 h; thereafter, there was no significant tissue reaction; and serum from owl monkeys contained no detectable anti-hylan gel antibodies (PCA assay). Expand
