Summary of "3D bioprinting of triphasic nanocomposite hydrogels and scaffolds for cell adhesion and migration."

In this study we describe the first example of 3D (bio)printed triphasic chiral nanocomposite (NC) hydrogels/scaffolds to simulate the complex 3D architecture, nano/micro scale topography, and chiral nature of ECM. These multifunctional constructs are prepared using a 3D (bio)printing technique and are composed of three connected hydrogels/scaffolds, two of which are loaded with nanomaterials functionalized with opposite enantiomers of a biomolecule. With these constructs, we direct the migration of cells toward the part of the triphasic chiral NC hydrogels/scaffolds containing the cells' preferred biomolecule enantiomer.

Cryogenic free-form extrusion bioprinting of decellularized small intestinal submucosa for potential applications in skin tissue engineering.

In current study, a novel strategy of cryogenic 3D bioprinting assisted by free-from extrusion printing was developed and applied to printing of a decellularized small intestinal submucosa (dSIS) slur...

Tyramine-conjugated alginate hydrogels as a platform for bioactive scaffolds.

Alginate-based hydrogels represent promising microenvironments for cell culture and tissue engineering, as their mechanical and porous characteristics are adjustable toward in vivo conditions. However...

SDF-1 promotes cell migration to enhance bone regeneration after hypoxic preconditioning.

One of the major problems in bone regeneration is that seeded cells do not effectively infiltrate into the central scaffolds. Here, we generated chitosan/gelatin scaffolds (C group), and investigated ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A family of crosslinking filament proteins encoded by distinct FLN genes. Filamins are involved in cell adhesion, spreading, and migration, acting as scaffolds for over 90 binding partners including channels, receptors, intracellular signaling molecules and transcription factors. Due to the range of molecular interactions, mutations in FLN genes result in anomalies with moderate to lethal consequences.

Cell adhesion molecules that mediate neuron-neuron adhesion and neuron-astrocyte adhesion. They are expressed on neurons and Schwann cells, but not astrocytes and are involved in neuronal migration, neurite fasciculation, and outgrowth. Ng-CAM is immunologically and structurally distinct from NCAM.

A non-receptor protein tyrosine kinase that is localized to FOCAL ADHESIONS and is a central component of integrin-mediated SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION PATHWAYS. Focal adhesion kinase 1 interacts with PAXILLIN and undergoes PHOSPHORYLATION in response to adhesion of cell surface integrins to the EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX. Phosphorylated p125FAK protein binds to a variety of SH2 DOMAIN and SH3 DOMAIN containing proteins and helps regulate CELL ADHESION and CELL MIGRATION.

A member of the immunoglobulin superfamily of neuronal cell adhesion molecules that is required for proper nervous system development. Neural cell adhesion molecule L1 consists of six Ig domains, five fibronectin domains, a transmembrane region and an intracellular domain. Two splicing variants are known: a neuronal form that contains a four-amino acid RSLE sequence in the cytoplasmic domain, and a non-neuronal form that lacks the RSLE sequence. Mutations in the L1 gene result in L1 disease. Neural cell adhesion molecule L1 is predominantly expressed during development in neurons and Schwann cells; involved in cell adhesion, neuronal migration, axonal growth and pathfinding, and myelination.

A cell-surface ligand involved in leukocyte adhesion and inflammation. Its production is induced by gamma-interferon and it is required for neutrophil migration into inflamed tissue.
