Photopatterning of multifunctional hydrogels to direct adult neural precursor cells

, : Photopatterning of multifunctional hydrogels to direct adult neural precursor cells. Advanced Healthcare Materials 4(4): 516-521

Matrix-metalloproteinase and photosensitive peptide units are combined with heparin and poly(ethylene glycol) into a light-sensitive multicomponent hydrogel material. Localized degradation of the hydrogel matrix allows the creation of defined spatial constraints and adhesive patterning for cells grown in culture. Using this matrix system, it is demonstrated that the degree of confinement determines the fate of neural precursor cells in vitro.

The role of 2 protein-tyrosine kinases in the membrane translocation and enzymatic activity of protein kinase CbI (PKCbI) was investigated. Genetic, biochemical, and pharmacological studies provided evidence that the kinase Syk regulates Bruton&ap...

The authors have shown that operation of lumbar sympathectomy increases the skin oxygenation level, increases the volume blood flow in the main arteries and gives rise to positive shifts in metabolic processes in the extremity tissues.
