Use of a biomimetic chromatographic stationary phase for study of the interactions occurring between inorganic anions and phosphatidylcholine membranes. (1/731)

A liquid chromatographic method for the study of ion-membrane interactions is reported. A phosphatidylcholine biomimetic stationary phase was established by loading dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) onto a reversed-phase octadecylsilica packed column. This column was then used to study the interaction of some inorganic anions with the stationary phase by UV and conductivity detection. Ten inorganic anions were selected as model ions and were analyzed with the proposed chromatographic system. Anion-DMPC interactions of differing magnitudes were observed for all of the model anions. Perchlorate-DMPC interactions were strongest, followed by thiocyanate-DMPC, iodide-DMPC, chlorate-DMPC, nitrate-DMPC, bromide-DMPC, chloride-DMPC, fluoride-DMPC, and then sulfate-DMPC. Cations in the eluent, especially H(+) ions and divalent cations such as Ca(2+), showed strong effects on anion-DMPC interactions. The chromatographic data suggest that DMPC interacts with both the anions and the cations. Anion-DMPC interactions were dependent on the surface potential of the stationary phase: at low surface potentials anion-DMPC interactions were predominantly solvation dependent in nature whereas at more positive surface potentials anion-DMPC interactions were predominantly electrostatic in nature. Cation-DMPC interactions served to raise the surface potential, causing the anion-DMPC interactions to vary from solvation dependent to electrostatic. The chromatographic data were used to provide quantitative estimates of the enthalpies of the anion-DMPC interactions.  (+info)

Nanotubules formed by highly hydrophobic amphiphilic alpha-helical peptides and natural phospholipids. (2/731)

We previously reported that the 18-mer amphiphilic alpha-helical peptide, Hel 13-5, consisting of 13 hydrophobic residues and five hydrophilic amino acid residues, can induce neutral liposomes (egg yolk phosphatidylcholine) to adopt long nanotubular structures and that the interaction of specific peptides with specific phospholipid mixtures induces the formation of membrane structures resembling cellular organelles such as the Golgi apparatus. In the present study we focused our attention on the effects of peptide sequence and chain length on the nanotubule formation occurring in mixture systems of Hel 13-5 and various neutral and acidic lipid species by means of turbidity measurements, dynamic light scattering measurements, and electron microscopy. We designed and synthesized two sets of Hel 13-5 related peptides: 1) Five peptides to examine the role of hydrophobic or hydrophilic residues in amphiphilic alpha-helical structures, and 2) Six peptides to examine the role of peptide length, having even number residues from 12 to 24. Conformational, solution, and morphological studies showed that the amphiphilic alpha-helical structure and the peptide chain length (especially 18 amino acid residues) are critical determinants of very long tubular structures. A mixture of alpha-helix and beta-structures determines the tubular shapes and assemblies. However, we found that the charged Lys residues comprising the hydrophilic regions of amphiphilic structures can be replaced by Arg or Glu residues without a loss of tubular structures. This suggests that the mechanism of microtubule formation does not involve the charge interaction. The immersion of the hydrophobic part of the amphiphilic peptides into liposomes initially forms elliptic-like structures due to the fusion of small liposomes, which is followed by a transformation into tubular structures of various sizes and shapes.  (+info)

High-performance photovoltaic behavior of oriented purple membrane polymer composite films. (3/731)

The photovoltaic behavior of films in which bacteriorhodopsin molecules are embedded in a polyvinyl alcohol matrix has been investigated by using both pulsed laser excitation and regular light illumination. Response times as short as milliseconds, photocurrents as great as 120 micro A/cm(2), and photovoltages as large as 3.8 V have been obtained. A theoretical model has been developed and used to extract several physical parameters and fit the experimental results. Some important intrinsic parameters have been obtained. Theoretical results indicate that the average displacement of the excited protons is on the order of several tens of microns. Other curve fits show that photocurrent and photovoltage increase linearly with external field, but increase exponentially with flash power. These theoretical models and results can be extended to other kinds of photoactive polymeric materials.  (+info)

The flexibility of DNA double crossover molecules. (4/731)

Double crossover molecules are DNA structures containing two Holliday junctions connected by two double helical arms. There are several types of double crossover molecules, differentiated by the relative orientations of their helix axes, parallel or antiparallel, and by the number of double helical half-turns (even or odd) between the two crossovers. They are found as intermediates in meiosis and they have been used extensively in structural DNA nanotechnology for the construction of one-dimensional and two-dimensional arrays and in a DNA nanomechanical device. Whereas the parallel double helical molecules are usually not well behaved, we have focused on the antiparallel molecules; antiparallel molecules with an even number of half-turns between crossovers (termed DAE molecules) produce a reporter strand when ligated, facilitating their characterization in a ligation cyclization assay. Hence, we have estimated the flexibility of antiparallel DNA double crossover molecules by means of ligation-closure experiments. We are able to show that these molecules are approximately twice as rigid as linear duplex DNA.  (+info)

Mobility of taxol in microtubule bundles. (5/731)

Mobility of taxol inside microtubules was investigated using fluorescence recovery after photobleaching on flow-aligned bundles. Bundles were made of microtubules with either GMPCPP or GTP at the exchangeable site on the tubulin dimer. Recovery times were sensitive to bundle thickness and packing, indicating that taxol molecules are able to move laterally through the bundle. The density of open binding sites along a microtubule was varied by controlling the concentration of taxol in solution for GMPCPP samples. With >63% sites occupied, recovery times were independent of taxol concentration and, therefore, inversely proportional to the microscopic dissociation rate, k(off). It was found that 10k(off)(GMPCPP) approximately equal k(off)(GTP), consistent with, but not fully accounting for, the difference in equilibrium constants for taxol on GMPCPP and GTP microtubules. With <63% sites occupied, recovery times decreased as approximately [Tax](-1/5) for both types of microtubules. We conclude that the diffusion of taxol inside the microtubule bundle is hindered by rebinding events when open sites are within approximately 7 nm of each other.  (+info)

Chemical stabilisation of collagen as a biomimetic. (6/731)

Collagen is the most abundant protein in animals and because of its high mechanical strength and good resistance to degradation has been utilized in a wide range of products in industry whilst its low antigenicity has resulted in its widespread use in medicine. Collagen products can be purified from fibres, molecules reconstituted as fibres or from specific recombinant polypeptides with preferred properties. A common feature of all these biomaterials is the need for stable chemical cross-linking to control the mechanical properties and the residence time in the body, and to some extent the immunogenicity of the device. This can be achieved by a number of different cross-linking agents that react with specific amino acid residues on the collagen molecule imparting individual biochemical, thermal and mechanical characteristics to the biomaterial. In this review we have summarised the major techniques for testing these characteristics and the mechanisms involved in the variety of cross-linking reactions to achieve particular properties.  (+info)

Water and proton conduction through carbon nanotubes as models for biological channels. (7/731)

Carbon nanotubes, unmodified (pristine) and modified through charged atoms, were simulated in water, and their water conduction rates determined. The conducted water inside the nanotubes was found to exhibit a strong ordering of its dipole moments. In pristine nanotubes the water dipoles adopt a single orientation along the tube axis with a low flipping rate between the two possible alignments. Modification can induce in nanotubes a bipolar ordering as previously observed in biological water channels. Network thermodynamics was applied to investigate proton conduction through the nanotubes.  (+info)

Ion channels of alamethicin dimer N-terminally linked by disulfide bond. (8/731)

A covalent dimer of alamethicin Rf30 was synthesized by linking the N-termini by a disulfide bond. When the dimer peptides were added to the cis-side of a diphytanoyl PC membrane, macroscopic channel current was induced only at cis positive voltages. The single-channel recordings showed several conductance levels that were alternately stabilized. These results indicate that the dimer peptides form stable channels by N-terminal insertion like alamethicin and that most of the pores are assembled from even numbers of helices. Taking advantages of the long open duration of the dimer peptide channels, the current-voltage (I-V) relations of the single-channels were obtained by applying fast voltage ramps during the open states. The I-V relations showed rectification, such that current from the cis-side toward the trans-side is larger than that in the opposite direction. The intrinsic rectification is mainly attributed to the macro dipoles of parallel peptide helices surrounding a central pore.  (+info)

Tendon tissue engineering strategies that recreate the biophysical and biochemical native microenvironment have a greater potential to achieve regeneration. Here, we developed tendon biomimetic scaffolds using mechanically competent yarns of poly-ε-caprolactone, chitosan and cellulose nanocrystals to recreate the inherent tendon hierarchy from the nano to macro scale. These were then coated with tropoelastin (TROPO) through polydopamine linking (PDA), to mimic the native extracellular matrix (ECM) composition and elasticity. Both PDA and TROPO coatings decreased surface stiffness without masking the underlying substrate. We found that human adipose-derived stem cells (hASCs) seeded onto these TROPO biomimetic scaffolds more rapidly acquired their spindle-shape morphology and high aspect ratio characteristic of tenocytes. Immunocytochemistry shows that the PDA and TROPO-coated surfaces boosted differentiation of hASCs towards the tenogenic lineage, with sustained expression of the tendon-related ...

Tissue engineering is an attractive approach for restoring diseased or defective tissues for organ rehabilitation. However, when therapy is targeted at a tissue unable to undergo self-healing, the surgical application of biomimetic materials resembling the specific extracellular environment can be useful, but insufficient, to promote a full repair process. As such, next-generation biomimetic materials should hold multi-functional properties in order to provide a suitable environment for cells over time, allowing harmonization with the surrounding tissues in order to maximize tissue cross-talk. Moreover, they should be effective in preventing adverse events such as infections and inflammation. Finally, material properties should be targeted as much as possible toward a patients personalized healing signature to optimize surgical and post-surgical management. For these reasons the design of materials is not trivial, and requires a rational approach and a robust preventive analysis, as well as careful

The fate of tumors depends both on the cancer cells intrinsic characteristics and on the environmental conditions where the tumors reside and grow. Engineered in vitro models have led to significant advances in cancer research, allowing the investigation of cells in physiological environments and the study of disease mechanisms and processes with enhanced relevance. Here we present a biomimetic cancer model based on a collagen matrix synthesized through a biologically inspired process. We compared in this environment the responses of two breast tumor lineages characterized by different molecular patterns and opposite clinical behaviors: MCF-7 that belong to the luminal A subtype connected to an indolent course, and basal-like MDA-MB-231 connected to high-grade and aggressive disease. Cancer cells in the biomimetic matrix recreate a hypoxic environment that affects their growth dynamics and phenotypic features. Hypoxia induces apoptosis and the selection of aggressive cells that acquire expression

Benjamin Eggs, M. Sc.. During evolution, plants and animals have evolved a variety of rod-like or tube-shaped systems capable of adapting their stiffness and of achieving deformations without the need of classical engineering-like joints.. In architectural concepts, such adaptable systems would provide the technical basis for the construction of building structures and facades that continuously react to changes of ambient physical conditions and would have the potential to enhance the effectiveness and sustainability of architecture.. Knowledge of the biological principles leading to such adaptive and hinge-less mechanisms offers huge potentials for the biomimetic development of novel technological mechanisms, providing systemic and continuous actuation. Hence, the main aim of this project is to investigate mechanisms of plants and animals exhibiting adaptive stiffness or hinge-less joints in order to combine and translate these mechanisms into novel biomimetic technical actuators for built ...

Biofouling is the accumulation of living organisms on a surface including bacteria, fungi, protozoa, algae and invertebrates. The growth of marine organisms on ship hulls is a major expense factor in naval industries. PDMS, low surface energy silicone material, was a nontoxic alternative to conventional biocide paints. While PDMS is not inherently antifouling due to the release of hard fouling and soft fouling under suitable hydrodynamic conditions, and bioaccumulation will occur under static and low flow conditions (Holm et al., 2006), in recent years, the approach to reduce organism settlement on PDMS surface utilizes engineered surface topographies, including a unique pattern Sharklet AF™ similar to shark skin surface (Schumacher et al., 2007). In this paper, a biomimetic PDMS-based surface that is highly similar to a shark skin surface was prepared using PEES method (a bio-replicated forming technique). Anti-biofouling properties of these biomimetic surfaces were firstly ...
Revascularisation of the devitalised root canal is the Holy Grail of Endodontics and is being hotly pursued by many teams of clinicians but has yet to be achieved. The overall aim of this work was to attempt to induce early angiogenesis in human dental pulp stromal cells (DPSCS) in vitro and in vivo using a biomimetic approach based on combining scaffolds comprised of ECM components with DPSCs as a first step towards a tissue engineering strategy for dental pulp regeneration. After isolating DPSCs using collagenase digest, they were cultured on 1% hyaluronic acid (HyA) or Types I and III collagen matrices used either singly or in combination to determine the ability of these scaffolds to support/induce early angiogenic change in DPSCs both in vitro and in vivo. Angiogenic change was determined using a combined approach of DNA quantification, histology, immunohistochemistry to detect the angiogenic markers CD31 and CD34 and quantitative RT-PCR. DPSCs were shown to attach and proliferate on Type I ...
We propose to combine a biomimetic navigation model which solves a simultaneous localization and mapping task with a biomimetic sonar mounted on a mobile robot to address two related questions. First, can robotic sonar sensing lead to intelligent interactions with complex environments? Second, can we model sonar based spatial orientation and the construction of spatial maps by bats? To address these questions we adapt the mapping module of RatSLAM, a previously published navigation system based on computational models of the rodent hippocampus. We analyze the performance of the proposed robotic implementation operating in the real world. We conclude that the biomimetic navigation model operating on the information from the biomimetic sonar allows an autonomous agent to map unmodified (office) environments efficiently and consistently. Furthermore, these results also show that successful navigation does not require the readings of the biomimetic sonar to be interpreted in terms of individual objects

Membranes that differentiate ions are being actively developed to meet the needs in separation, sensing, biomedical, and water treatment technologies. Biomimetic approaches that combine bioinspired functional molecules with solid state Supports offer great potential for imitating the functions and principles of biological ion channels. Here we report the design and fabrication of biomimetic graphene oxide (GO) based membranes functionalized with a peptide motif that has the capabilities for selective recognition and transport. The peptide, which has ion binding affinity to Co2+ ions, was adopted to enable the ion selective filtration capability and was then anchored on a GO surface. The resulting GO-based membranes show remarkable ion selectivity toward the specific ion of interest, for the transport across the membranes as in the biological ion channels. Ion recognition capability of this peptide motif successfully translates into ion Specificity for selective transport. This study provides a ...

Biomimetic approach uses advanced adhesion to replicate the structure and biomechanics of natural teeth. The best dentistry for the future is no dentistry. The greatest service that we can provide for our patients is to continue to improve the effectiveness of screening, prevention, and healing strategies to minimize the need for restorative treatment. However, when restoration is indicated, modern restorative treatment options have consistently trended toward the conservation of natural tooth structure and the provision of minimally invasive restorations. The biomimetic approach combines tooth conservation with the use of restorative materials and techniques that replicate the structural integrity and biomechanics of natural teeth.. Historically, the structural properties and biomechanics of natural teeth were not well understood. Traditional dental procedures relied on mechanical retention and preparation designs that required significant tooth reduction in order to be successful. Although ...
Human diseases characterized by the deposition of insoluble extracellular proteins are referred to as amyloidoses. Such amyloidoses include Alzheimers disease, Parkinsons disease, Huntington disease, and prion disease. These amyloidoses are found to have common cellular and molecular mechanisms including protein aggregation. These aggregates usually consist of fibers containing misfolded protein with a [beta]-sheet conformation, termed amyloid. The protein aggregates associated with Alzheimers disease are amyloid-[beta] peptides which have been linked to neuronal death through a poorly understood mechanism. In this work, the interaction between a model protein (insulin) which forms amyloid aggregates and a biomimetic membrane was studied. Specifically spectroscopy was used to detect molecular level changes occurring upon this protein-membrane interaction. It was found that oligomers and protofibrils had the most significant effect on membrane quality; significant membrane deterioration was ...

The overall aim of this thesis was to establish whether selected Leeds β-structure self- assembling peptides were suitable candidates for use in skeletal tissue engineering. This was addressed by first carrying out simple cytotoxicity studies on selected SAPs using an osteosarcoma cell line in vitro, followed by assessing extent of bone regeneration / repair and safety in vivo in a rabbit calvarial defect model. In vitro investigations revealed that the SAPs (P11-4, P11-8, P111-12, P11-1S, P11-16 and Pl1- 20) tested were cytocompatible, though the positively charged SAP P11-16 performed less well than other SAPs tested in the contact cytoxicity assay, possibly due to the presence of chemical contaminant introduced during the peptide purification process. Cell proliferation was generally superior on the negatively charged peptides compared with the positively charged peptides and cells appeared to thrive at the lower concentrations (30 mg/mL) of negatively charged SAPs compared with their ...

Associate Professor Jin Kim Montclare of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering received $368,000 over three years to fabricate patterned protein hydrogels for applications in sensing, drug delivery, and wound healing. As an example, these biomimetic materials could mimic the adhesion properties of the human body well enough to heal wounds. Montclare also envisions biomimetic materials that will be able to sense and control the flow of fluids, or even control the delivery of drugs within the bloodstream.. After testing the protein hydrogels, which are made from the Escherichia coli bacterium, they will be patterned onto various solid substrates to mimic biological functions. An example of this would be the patterning on a geckos finger that allows it to adhere to surfaces. A similarly designed protein hydrogel could yield a similar stickiness. Using different patterning, protein hydrogels can adopt various other capabilities seen in nature.. Montclares research differs from ...

ACIEFS50 (39) 8993-9212 (2011) · ISSN 1433-7851 · Vol. 50 · No. 39 Cover Picture Yuichi Kitagawa, Hiroshi Segawa, and Kazuyuki Ishii* The homochirality of life is still an unsolved mystery. Magneto-chiral dichroism (MChD, the dependence of the absorbance of a chiral molecule on the direction of a magnetic field) has attracted attention as a plausible way to explain this puzzle. Several examples of MChD of metal compounds are known, but MChD of biological organic compounds has not been reported. In their Communication on page 9133 ff., K. Ishii et al. describe the first observation of MChD in organic compounds by using porphyrin J-aggregates. Biomimetic Materials Z. Guan and A. M. Kushner show in their Review on page 9026 ff. how advanced materials can be developed following natures inspiration. The focus is on ...
During cell apoptosis, natural phosphatidylserines exposed on the outer membranes of apoptotic cells can prevent the occurrence of unexpected immune activation by directing antigen-presenting cells, such as macrophages and DCs that differentiate into the tolerogenic phenotype, and promoting the release of anti-inflammatory cytokines (28). To examine whether the PS-mimetic polymers can emulate the modulating effect of apoptotic cells and elicit anti-inflammatory responses in activated macrophages, we investigated the potential effect of ZPS, NZPS, and MPC on RAW 264.7 macrophages in the presence of lipopolysaccharide (LPS), an immunostimulatory molecule. For a fair comparison, ZPS, NZPS, and MPC were prepared into nanogels with uniform sizes (~40 nm) and surfaces (table S1). The zeta potential of anionic NZPS nanogel was negative (~−20 mv), while those of zwitterionic ZPS and MPC nanogels were close to neutral. RAW 264.7 macrophages (105 per well) were treated with nanogels composed of MPC, ...
Researchers from the University of Amsterdams Van t Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences (HIMS) have developed a range of synthetic biomimetic compounds to replace the relatively expensive natural NADH and NADPH coenzymes in enzymatic conversions of industrial relevance. They show that some of the compounds even outperform their natural counterparts. The research has been published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS).

We use MP-SPR to quantify conformation changes of proteins at the surface under different environmental conditions. MP-SPR can be combined with electrochemistry to gather both optical and electrochemical real-time data simultaneously from the same reaction. Electric potentiostat can be used for electrodeposition of thin films in-situ, to modify el. potential across a surface to study biomimetic surfaces (electrochemical switching).
ROBOMINERS will develop a bio-inspired, modular and reconfigurable robot-miner for small and difficult to access deposits. The aim is to create a prototype robot that is capable of mining underground, underwater or above water, and can be delivered in modules to the deposit via a large diameter borehole. In the envisioned ROBOMINERS technology line, mining will take place underground, underwater in a flooded environment. A large diameter borehole is drilled from the surface to the mineral deposit. A modular mining machine is delivered in modules via the borehole. This will then self-assemble and begin its operation. Powered by a water hydraulic drivetrain and artificial muscles, the robot will have high power density and environmentally safe operation. Situational awareness and sensing is provided by novel body sensors, including artificial whiskers that will merge data in realtime with production sensors, optimising the rate of production and selection between different production methods. The ...

AU - Sokolov, Andrey. AU - Noirot, Philippe. AU - Laible, Philip D.. PY - 2018/4/14. Y1 - 2018/4/14. N2 - Nature has amassed an impressive array of structures that afford protection from microbial colonization/infection when displayed on the exterior surfaces of organisms. Here, controlled variation of the features of mimetics derived from etched silicon allows for tuning of their antimicrobial efficacy. Materials with nanopillars up to 7 μm in length are extremely effective against a wide range of microbial species and exceed the performance of natural surfaces; in contrast, materials with shorter/blunter nanopillars (,2 μm) selectively killed specific species. Using a combination of microscopies, the mechanisms by which bacteria are killed are demonstrated, emphasizing the dependence upon pillar density and tip ...

Chemotherapy has been widely used in clinical practice for cancer treatment. A major challenge for a successful chemotherapy is to potentiate the anticancer activity, whilst reducing the severe side effects. In this context, we design a bio-inspired protein-gold nanoconstruct (denoted as AFt-Au hereafter) with a core-void-shell structure which exhibits a high selectivity towards carcinoma cells. Anticancer drug 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) can be sequestered into the void space of the construct to produce an integrated nanoscale hybrid AFt-AuFU that exhibits an increased cellular uptake of 5-FU. More importantly, AFt-Au, serving as a bio-nano-chemosensitizer, renders carcinoma cells more susceptible to 5-FU by cell-cycle regulation, and thus, leads to a dramatic decrease of the IC50 value (i.e. the drug concentration required to kill 50% of the cell population) of 5-FU in HepG2 cells from 138.3 mu M to 9.2 mu M. Besides HepG2 cells, a remarkably enhanced anticancer efficacy and potentially reduced side ...
OBIMOD Open-ended Bio-Inspired Modelling and Design Workshop ABSTRACT Strongly bio-inspired models and design procedures draw inspiration from biological processes, physiological mechanisms, neural dynamics and other complex phenomena observed in nature. Unfortunately, bio-inspired notions are often quickly applied to and validated on optimisation problems, resulting in a short-term struggle for performance that forsakes the original inspiring principles. Releasing the focus from the performance, OBIMOD researchers enjoy more freedom to explore original ideas, novel approaches and devote more attention to the inspiring sources. Open-ended bio-inspired modelling and design investigate ideas like gene regulatory networks and artificial genomes, developmental processes, scalable and novel neural systems, generative, robust, fault-tolerant and immune systems, artiticial behaviour and Alife, learning, memory and other. This workshop was organised to bring together OBIMOD researchers at the School of ...

Birdsong is the product of the controlled generation of sound embodied in a neuromotor system. From a biophysical perspective, a natural question is that of the difficulty of producing birdsong. To address this, we built a biomimetic syrinx consisting of a stretched simple rubber tube through which air is blown, subject to localized mechanical squeezing with a linear actuator. A large static tension on the tube and small dynamic variations in the localized squeezing allow us to control transitions between three states: a quiescent state, a periodic state and a solitary wave state. The static load brings the system close to threshold for spontaneous oscillations, while small dynamic loads allow for rapid transitions between the states. We use this to mimic a variety of birdsongs via the slow-fast modulated nonlinear dynamics of the physical substrate, the syrinx, regulated by a simple controller. Finally, a minimal mathematical model of the system inspired by our observations allows us to address ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Enhanced tumor cell isolation by a biomimetic combination of e-selectin and anti-epcam. T2 - Implications for the effective separation of circulating tumor cells (CTCs). AU - Myung, Ja Hye. AU - Launiere, Cari A.. AU - Eddington, David T.. AU - Hong, Seungpyo. PY - 2010/6/1. Y1 - 2010/6/1. N2 - The selective detection of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) is of significant clinical importance for the clinical diagnosis and prognosis of cancer metastasis. However, largely because of the extremely low number of CTCs (as low as 1 in 1.09 hematologic cells) in the blood of patients, effective detection and separation of the rare cells remain a tremendous challenge. Cell rolling is known to play a key role in physiological processes such as the recruitment of leukocytes to sites of inflammation and selectin-mediated CTC metastasis. Furthermore, because CTCs typically express the epithelial-cell, adhesion molecule (EpCAM) on the surface whereas normal hematologic cells do not, substrates ...

Materials scientists, chemists, biologists, physicists, bioengineers and clinicians join together in this volume to focus on the formation, function and structural characterization of biologically formed organic and inorganic materials. Recent developments in bioinspired materials synthesis are also featured. In all of these areas, understanding the structures and kinetics of the interfaces between crystals and other ordered or disordered molecular assemblies requires consideration of multiple chemical species, intermolecular interactions, self assembly, molecular anisotropy, and the structure of the interface between fluid and solid phases. Of particular interest are new materials engineered to replace or restore tissue functions. Topics include: materials in natural biological tissues; imaging and characterization techniques; organic biomaterials--proteins and peptides; interface engineering, patterning and biocompatibility; composite biomaterials--bones and teeth; biomaterials; tissue engineering;
Thanks to hundreds of millions of years of molecular evolution, Nature today presents us with polymers that under ambient pressure and temperature can self- assemble into materials with extraordinary properties such as underwater adhesion and self-healing. In contrast, man-made polymer materials are typically water intolerant, mechanically irreversible and environmentally unfriendly. My long term research goal is to distill the design strategies evolved through biological material adaptation in Nature and use them to expand the material properties of synthetic polymers. In the short term my lab will focus on utilizing a recently discovered biological polymer crosslink mechanism to (I) control polymer mechanics, to (II) establish polymer networks in confined geometries, and to (III) assemble polymer materials with bio-inspired hierarchical designs.. ...
