Abstract: Designing scaffolds for regenerative tissue engineering relies upon creating a suitable microenvironment for directing biological responses. This work aims to further characterize functionalized alginate hydrogels designed to mimic the extracellular matrix. We investigated the effects of reactant concentrations, ligand loading density, and peptide spacer arm length on reaction efficiency... read more
