Visible-light-initiated hydrogels preserving cartilage extracellular signaling for inducing chondrogenesis of mesenchymal stem cells.

Abstract

Hydrogels have a unique opportunity to regenerate damaged cartilage tissues by introducing mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in a highly swollen environment similar to articular cartilage. During cartilage development, collagen-cell interactions play an important role in mediating early mesenchymal condensation and chondrogenesis with transforming growth factor… (More)
