Structure of fibrous scaffolds varies depending on the electrospinning method and parameters which will define cell fate. In this study, monoaxial and coaxial electrospun PCL/gelatin/P-188 scaffolds were characterized in terms of morphology, chemistry, mechanical property, water retention, weight loss, porosity and release properties. Coaxial fibers supported duel release of model hydrophilic protein (Beta-lactoglobulin) and hydrophobic agent vitamin K2. Novel PCL/P-188(Shell):Gelatin/P-188(Core) coaxial scaffold had superior stability, average weight loss, no swelling behavior, controlled release of Beta-lactoglobulin and vitamin K2, enhanced Saos-2 cell viability and ALP activity and could be a good candidate as a bone tissue scaffold.

A Study on induction of minicell formation by FtsZ overproducing L-form E. coli
Yılmaz, İsmail Cem; Özcengiz, Gülay; Gürsel, Mayda; Department of Biology (2014)
L-form organisms (or L-phase, L-variants) are cell wall-deficient (CWD) bacteria consisting of protoplasts and spheroplasts that have the ability to grow and divide. The mutant strain LW1655F+ (also known as L-form E. coli) was originally derived from the parental E. coli K-12 parental strain and is known to be deficient in cell wall, periplasmic space, flagella, fimbriae and outer membrane. Minicells are small cell-like structures that do not have genomic DNA and are produced during the logarithmic phase o...
Evaluating Oxygen Tensions Related to Bone Marrow and Matrix for MSC Differentiation in 2D and 3D Biomimetic Lamellar Scaffolds
Sayin, Esen; Baran, Erkan Turker; Elsheikh, Ahmed; Mudera, Vivek; Cheema, Umber; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (2021-04-01)
The physiological O-2 microenvironment of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and osteoblasts and the dimensionality of a substrate are known to be important in regulating cell phenotype and function. By providing the physiologically normoxic environments of bone marrow (5%) and matrix (12%), we assessed their potential to maintain stemness, induce osteogenic differentiation, and enhance the material properties in the micropatterned collagen/silk fibroin scaffolds that were produced in 2D or 3D. Expression of ost...
Analysis of the genetic determinant for production of the pediocin P of Pediococcus pentosaecus Pep 1
Osmanagaoglu, O; Beyatli, Y; Gündüz, Ufuk; Sacilik, SC (2000-01-01)
Pediococcus pentosaceus Pep1 is a vacuum-packaged Turkish sausage isolate which produces a potentially novel bacteriocin of the pediocin (anti-Listeria) family of peptides designated as pediocin P. Curing experiments and plasmid profile analysis indicated that both bacteriocin immunity and production determinants were linked and encoded by 9.0 MDa plasmid, pHD1.0. Attempts to transform purified plasmid pHD1.0 into recipient Escherichia coli JM109 cells by electroporation were successful but none of the E. c...
A high throughput approach for analysis of cell nuclear deformability at single cell level
Ermis, Menekse; Akkaynak, Derya; Chen, Pu; Demirci, Utkan; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (2016-11-14)
Various physiological and pathological processes, such as cell differentiation, migration, attachment, and metastasis are highly dependent on nuclear elasticity. Nuclear morphology directly reflects the elasticity of the nucleus. We propose that quantification of changes in nuclear morphology on surfaces with defined topography will enable us to assess nuclear elasticity and deformability. Here, we used soft lithography techniques to produce 3 dimensional (3-D) cell culture substrates decorated with micron ...
The effect of para-cyclophane structure on cyclacenes
Türker, Burhan Lemi (2000-02-01)
Semiempirical molecular orbital treatment at the level of AMI type has been performed on the Huckel type cyclacenes having the normal and the skew type para-cyclophane moiety embedded into their structures. The cyclophane effect is found to be operative on the lower members by veiling the cryptoannulenic effect which is influential on the heats of formation values and the frontier molecular orbital energies of the higher members as well as the parent cyclacenes.
