Biocompatible scaffolds constructed by chondroitin sulfate microspheres conjugated 3D-printed frameworks for bone repair

Carbohydrate Polymers 2023 Volume 299, Article 120188

Most bone repair scaffolds are multi-connected channel structure, but the hollow structure is not conducive to the transmission of active factors, cells and so on. Here, microspheres were covalently integrated into 3D-printed frameworks to form composite scaffolds for bone repair. The frameworks composed of double bond modified gelatin (Gel-MA) and nano-hydroxyapatite (nHAP) provided strong support for related cells climbing and growth. Microspheres, which were made of Gel-MA and chondroitin sulfate A (CSA), were able to connect the frameworks like bridges, providing channels for cells migration. Additionally, CSA released from microspheres promoted the migration of osteoblasts and enhanced osteogenesis. The composite…

Zein regulating apatite mineralization, degradability, in vitro cells responses and in vivo osteogenesis of 3D-printed scaffold of n-MS/ZN/PCL ternary composite

RSC Advances 2018 Volume 8, Pages 18745-18756

Bioactive and degradable scaffolds of nano magnesium silicate (n-MS)/zein (ZN)/poly(caprolactone) (PCL) ternary composites were prepared by 3D-printing method. The results showed that the 3D-printed scaffolds possessed controllable pore structure, and pore morphology, pore size, porosity and pore interconnectivity of the scaffolds can be efficiently adjusted. In addition, the apatite-mineralization ability of the scaffolds in simulated body fluids was obviously improved with the increase of ZN content, in which the scaffold with 20 w% ZN (C20) possessed excellent apatite-mineralization ability. Moreover, the degradability of the scaffolds was significantly enhanced with the increase of ZN content in the scaffolds. The degradation of…

Elastic polyurethane bearing pendant TGF-β1 affinity peptide for potential tissue engineering applications

Materials Science and Engineering: C 2017 Volume 83, Pages 67-77

Highlights * An elastic degradable polyurethane (PU) bearing pendent HSNGLPL peptide for TGF-β1 affinity binding mimics the extracellular matrix function to retain and release growth factors. * The pendant peptide sequence presented a high affinity for TGF-β1 retaining, even when the surface was pre-coated with other proteins. * The synthesized PU shows good extrusion processing ability and can be printed into 3D scaffolds with designed porous structures. * The released TGF-β1 from surface conjugating was tested by differentiation guiding experiments of ATDC5 cells in vitro and the regeneration of the surrounding tissue after implanting in vivo.
