Electrochemical control of the enzymatic polymerization of peg hydrogels: formation of spatially controlled biological microenvironments


Milleret, Vincent; Simona, Benjamin R; Lienemann, Philipp S; Vörös, János; Ehrbar, Martin (2014). Electrochemical control of the enzymatic polymerization of peg hydrogels: formation of spatially controlled biological microenvironments. Advanced Healthcare Materials, 3(4):508-514.

Abstract

Control of pH gradient profile at the electrode-electrolyte interfaces allows the control of the enzymatic PEG-hydrogel polymerization. By tuning the solution pH, buffer capacity, and the applied current, the extent of the local inhibition and confinement of the Factor XIII-mediated polymerization of PEG are controlled. This technology opens new perspectives for the production of 3D-structured biological microenvironments.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
