The development of functional hyaluronan hydrogels for neural tissue engineering

Abstract:

Tissue engineers – in order to develop therapies for the treatment of complex neurological injuries and diseases – attempt to recreate elaborate developmental mechanisms in vitro. Neuronal precursor cells are excellent candidates for the study of developmental operations such as cell adhesion, differentiation, and axonal pathfinding. Hyaluronan (HA) is a common polysaccharide that is found extensively throughout the neuronal extracellular matrix (ECM), and can be functionalised an...
