Surface modified multi-functional PCL/TCP fibrous scaffolds

Porous and fibrous scaffolds prepared using various methods are essential components of tissue engineering. Poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL), due to its biocompatibility and mechanical properties, is one of the most desirable polymers in scaffold preparation for bone tissue engineering applications, and there are many studies on modification of PCL to enhance its biocompatibility. In this study, porous and fibrous scaffolds of PCL containing TCP were prepared by wet spinning and gelatin was immobilized onto it to enhance cell attachment on the surface. In order to increase the local antimicrobial agent delivery to the application site, gelatin microvesicles carrying a model antibiotic were adhered on the scaffold surface. Scaffolds were incubated with human osteosarcoma cells Saos-2 to study its biocompatibility and the antimicrobial effect on E. coli.

Facile control of hydroxyapatite particle morphology by utilization of calcium carbonate templates at room temperature
Oral, Çağatay M.; Çalışkan, Arda; Kapusuz, Derya; Ercan, Batur (Elsevier BV, 2020-09-01)
Hydroxyapatite (HAp, Ca-10(PO4)(6)(OH)(2)) particles are widely used in orthopedic applications due to their chemical resemblance to the inorganic component of bone tissue. Since physical and chemical properties of HAp particles influence bone regeneration, various synthesis techniques were developed to precisely control the particle properties. However, most of these techniques required high reaction temperatures, which limited the spectrum of obtained HAp particle morphologies. In this study, ellipsoidal,...
Surface functionalized poly-lactic acid (PLA) scaffolds for bone tissue engineering
Monirizad, Mahsa; Keskin, Dilek; Ermiş Şen, Menekşe; Department of Engineering Sciences (2022-2)
The need for more effective tissue grafts for orthopedic applications is one of the main research areas of tissue engineering. In bone tissue engineering (BTE), scaffolds that can mimic bone tissue both from mechanical and biological perspectives are investigated mostly. In this study, it was aimed to develop a BTE scaffold that can mimic bone ECM, mechanical strength and cell biocompatibility in a single design and thus, various groups of scaffolds were characterized in terms of mechanical, biocompatibilit...
Pesticide and model drug release from carboxymethylceullose microspheres
Darvari, R; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (1996-01-01)
Water soluble derivatives of cellulose are widely used in various biomedical and biotechnological applications. Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose was insolubilized in the form of microspheres using aluminium chloride as the crosslinking agent. It was observed that, depending on the preparation medium pH, the spherical product could either be a microsphere with an ionotropic interior or a microcapsule. Various microspheres with different crosslinker, biopolymer, and drug (2',7'-dichlorofluorescein and aldicarb)...
Enantioselective michael addition of 1-nitropropane to nitroolefins with 2-aminodmap and quinine based bifunctional organocatalysts
Kanberoğlu, Esra; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2015)
1,3-dinitro compounds are key materials in the synthesis of a variety of important fine chemicals. Moreover, they are reduced to 1,3-diamines which are starting materials of biologically active compounds, agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals. In this study, ((2S,3S)-1,3-dinitropentan-2-yl)benzene was synthesized via the Michael addition of 1-nitropropane to trans-β-nitrostyrene in the presence of chiral bifunctional 2-aminoDMAP and quinine based organocatalysts. In the first part of study, reaction conditions ...
Biodegradable poly (ester-urethane) scaffolds for bone tissue engineering
Kızıltay, Aysel; Hasırcı, Nesrin; Department of Biotechnology (2011)
During last decade, polyurethanes (PUs) which are able to degrade into harmless molecules upon implantation have received a significant level of attention as a biomaterial in tissue engineering applications. Many studies are focused especially on development of PUs based on amino acid derivatives; however, there are only few applications of amino acid based PUs in tissue engineering. In this study, a biocompatible and biodegradable thermoplastic poly(ester-urethane) (PEU) based on L-lysine diisocyanate (LDI...
