Fabrication of endothelial cell-specific polyurethane surfaces co-immobilized with GRGDS and YIGSR peptides
Macromolecular Research, Volume 17, Issue 7, 2009, Pages 458-463.
Polyurethane (PU) is widely used as a cardiovascular biomaterial due to its good mechanical properties and hemocompatibility, but it is not adhesive to endothelial cells (ECs). Cell adhesive peptides, GRGDS and YIGSR, were found to promote adhesion and spreading of ECs and showed a synergistic effect when both of them were used. In this...More
