Transfer of functional thermoresponsive poly(glycidyl ether) coatings for cell sheet fabrication from gold to glass surfaces.
Self-assembled monolayer brushes of PGE-AA block copolymers on glass are functional and stable thermoresponsive coatings for application in cell sheet fabrication of human fibroblasts as determined by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
Glycidyl Ether-Based Coatings on Polystyrene Culture Substrates for Temperature-Triggered Cell Sheet Fabrication
In this study, we introduce a platform to fabricate human dermal fibroblast (HDF), human aortic smooth muscle cell (HAoSMC) and human umbilical vein endothelial cell (HUVEC) sheets using
Switchable Oligo(glycidyl ether) Acrylate Bottlebrushes "Grafted-from" Polystyrene Surfaces: A Versatile Strategy toward Functional Cell Culture Substrates.
This study demonstrates the potential of OGEA-based coatings for cell sheet fabrication by adjusting the bottlebrush properties via the grafting procedure and coating structure and was able to harvest confluent HDF sheets from functionalized PS substrates in a temperature-triggered, controlled manner.
Thermoresponsive Poly(glycidyl ether) Brush Coatings on Various Tissue Culture Substrates—How Block Copolymer Design and Substrate Material Govern Self-Assembly and Phase Transition
It is shown that the temperature-dependent switchability of the brush coatings is not only dependent on the cloud point temperature of the block copolymers, but also markedly governed by the hydrophobicity of the surface-bound benzophenone anchor and the subjacent substrate material.
Adhesion of Epithelial Cells to PNIPAm Treated Surfaces for Temperature-Controlled Cell-Sheet Harvesting
Temperature dependent adhesive properties of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAm) microgel coated surfaces (PMS) are characterized using various atomic force microscopy based approaches to gain a deeper understanding of cell-sheet maturation and harvesting process and the involved partial ECM dissolution.
Endothelial, smooth muscle and fibroblast cell sheet fabrication from self-assembled thermoresponsive poly(glycidyl ether) brushes.
It is found that, by decreasing the temperature from 37 to 20 °C, the coatings undergo a pancake-to-brush transition, which triggers cell sheet detachment, which can be applied in vascular tissue engineering.
Cruciate Ligament Cell Sheets Can Be Rapidly Produced on Thermoresponsive poly(glycidyl ether) Coating and Successfully Used for Colonization of Embroidered Scaffolds
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) cell sheets combined with biomechanically competent scaffolds might facilitate ACL tissue engineering and PGE coating facilitates ligamentocyte sheet formation, and sheets colonizing the scaffolds displayed a ligament-related phenotype.

In-depth analysis of switchable glycerol based polymeric coatings for cell sheet engineering.
Controlled chain length and graft density of thermoresponsive polymer brushes for optimizing cell sheet harvest.
PIPAAm brush surfaces were successfully optimized to recover the cell sheets of bovine carotid artery endothelial cells and revealed that thecell sheets can be recovered with their intact extracellular matrix (ECM) from PipAAm surfaces, indicating that the cellsheets can be effectively transplanted to damaged tissues and organs.
Tuning of thermo-responsive self-assembly monolayers on gold for cell-type-specific control of adhesion.
Self-assembled monolayers on gold containing a thermo-responsive poly( N-isopropylacrylamide)-poly(ethylene glycol)-thiol copolymer were formed and allowed good spreading of osteosarcoma cells above LCST and their efficient detachment below LCST.
Poly(glycidyl ether)-Based Monolayers on Gold Surfaces: Control of Grafting Density and Chain Conformation by Grafting Procedure, Surface Anchor, and Molecular Weight.
Control of grafting density and thus chain overlap in different regimes (brush vs mushroom) on planar gold substrates are attainable for monolayer coatings with poly(GME-ran-EGE) by adjusting the polymer's molecular weight and anchor group as well as the conditions for the grafting-to procedure.
Fabrication of thermoresponsive polymer gradients for study of cell adhesion and detachment.
The work develops a method to fabricate the stable gradient surface with better quality control, and clarifies in a facile manner the appropriate thickness of the PNIPAAm brushes in terms of cell adhesion and detachment.
