Thiol-Rich Multifunctional Macromolecular Crosslinker for Gelatin- Norbornene-Based Bioprinting

Biomacromolecules 2021 Volume 22, Issue 6, Pages 2729-2739

Extrusion-based bioprinting is an emerging and most frequently used technique for the fabrication of cell-laden constructs. A suitable hydrogel-based bioink for cell encapsulation and protection is critical for printability, structural stability, and post-printing cell viability. The thiol–ene chemistry-based gelatin-norbornene (GelNB) hydrogels have drawn much attention as a promising substitution of gelatin methacryloyl (GelMA), owing to the fast and controllable step-growth polymerization mechanism, as well as a significant reduction in reactive oxygen species (ROS) accumulation. Herein, thiolated heparin (HepSH) was synthesized and used as a macromolecular crosslinker for GelNB-based bioprinting, so that GelNB gelation became less sensitive to the thiol/ene ratio.…
