Abstract
Soft tissue engineering requires antifouling materials that are biocompatible and mechanically flexible. Conventional hydrogels containing more than 70 wt% water are thus promising antifouling material candidates. However, some hydrogels are difficult to apply in internal body organs because of undesirable protein absorption on their surfaces. Due to the lack of an effective method for observing the true charge densities of hydrogels, the reason why electrostatic interactions dominate protein absorption behavior remains unclear. In this work, we adopt the microelectrode technique (MET) to study the electrical potentials of hydrogels with negative, positive, and neutral potentials and demonstrate the protein absorption behaviors on those hydrogels. The results show that MET is an effective method to obtain the surface charge densities of various hydrogels. Furthermore, the amounts of absorbed proteins on the gels were quantified with respect to the charge densities of the hydrogels. The results indicate that electrostatic absorption is quantitatively dominated by a combination of hydrogel charge density and overall protein charge. Based on the knowledge obtained in this work, the effects of hydrogel surface charges on protein absorption can be better understood. Thus, the results are expected to promote the application of hydrogels in tissue engineering.

In this study, we exploit the excellent fouling resistance of polymer zwitterions and present electrospun nanofiber mats surface functionalized with poly(2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine) (polyMPC). This zwitterionic polymer coating maximizes the accessibility of the zwitterion to effectively limit biofouling on nanofiber membranes. Two facile, scalable methods yielded a coating on cellulose nanofibers: (i) a two-step sequential deposition featuring dopamine polymerization followed by th...

Abstract Various molecular interaction forces are generated during protein adsorption process on material surfaces. Thus, it is necessary to control them to suppress protein adsorption and the subsequent cell and tissue responses. A series of binary copolymer brush layers were prepared via surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization, by mixing the cationic monomer unit and anionic monomer unit randomly in various ratios. Surface characterization revealed that the constructed copolymer...

: On implanting hydroxyapatite-mineralized tough hydrogel into osteochondral defects of rabbits, osteogenesis spontaneously penetrates into the gel matrix owing to the semi-permeablility of the hydrogel. The gradient layer (around 40 渭m thick) contributes quite strong bonding of the gel to bone. This is the first success in realizing the robust osteointegration of tough hydrogels, and the method is simple and feasible for practical use.

Mixed-charge polymer hydrogels were successfully prepared by copolymerization of different ratios of [2-(meth-acryloyloxy) ethyl] trimethylammonium (TMA) and 3-sulfopropyl methacrylate (SA). Then, a second polyacrylamide (PAAM) network was incorporated into the pre-prepared hydrogel to form a double network (DN) hydrogel. The compositions of these DN hydrogels were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Rheological and compress...

We report, for the first time, the quantitative measurement of the local electric potential of brittle polyelectrolyte hydrogels using the microelectrode technique (MET). Given the solid-like nature of the hydrogels, the difficulty of applying MET is how to make a good contact of the microelectrode to the hydrogel. Poor local contact substantial underestimates the potential. We observed that, the potential measured decays exponentially with the increase of capillary diameter of the microelectrod...

Abstract Non-fouling materials bind water molecules via either hydrogen bonding or ionic solvation to form a hydration layer which is responsible for their resistance to protein adsorption. Three ionic starch-based polymers, namely a cationic starch (C-Starch), an anionic starch (A-Starch) and a zwitterionic starch (Z-Starch), were synthesized via etherification reactions to incorporate both hydrogen bonding and ionic solvation hydration groups into one molecule. Further, C-, A- and Z-Starch hyd...

The development of a scalable, low-cost, and versatile biosensor platform for the sensitive and rapid detection of human metabolites is of great interest for healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and medical science. On the basis of hierarchically nanostructured conducting polymer hydrogels, we designed a flexible biosensor platform that can detect various human metabolites, such as uric acid, cholesterol, and triglycerides. Owing to the unique features of conducting polymer hydrogels, such as high perme...

Transparent, high water content (>65%), and cytocompatible hydrogels, which also possess super high refractive indices (RI鈥>鈥1.5), are needed for ophthalmological applications. Most hydrogels can achieve either high RI or high water content but not both in the same system because water is a low RI material. Here, high water content/high RI hydrogels fabricated through elevated-temperature UV polymerization of an aqueous solution of acrylamide (AM) and methacrylamide (MAM) with tri(ethylene glyco...

Many recent innovative treatments are based on monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and other protein therapies. Nevertheless, sustained subcutaneous, oral or pulmonary delivery of such therapeutics is limited by the poor stability, short half-life, and non-specific interactions between the antibody (Ab) and delivery vehicle. Protein stabilizers (osmolytes) such as carboxybetaine can prevent non-specific interactions within proteins. In this work, a biodegradable zwitterionic poly(carboxybetaine), pCB, ...

Macromolecular crowding (MMC) in cells is a hot topic in biology; therefore, well-characterized measurement standards for the evaluation of the nano-environment in MMC solutions are necessary. We propose to use polarization-dependent fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (Pol-FCS) for evaluation of macromolecular crowding in solutions. Pol-FCS can simultaneously measure the relaxation times of rotational and translational diffusion of fluorescent molecules at the same position, even in living ce...

Nature-inspired materials hold promise to tackle fouling experienced by membranes. Herein, a systematic approach is taken to explore the relative impact of charge and hydrophilicity on the anti-fouling properties of polyester membranes, both of which appear to play a role in the kidney's remarkable anti-fouling properties. Monofunctional and bifunctional polypropylene glycol (PPG) and polyethylene glycol (PEG) are used to modify polyester membranes. In both cases of hydrophilic modification and ...

Abstract In protein adsorption on material surfaces, the surface structure at the nanometer-scale is one of the most important factors; however, the relationship between the size of the hydrophobic protein-adsorptive domain and that of the protein in protein adsorption remains unclear. In this study, we prepared phase-separated surfaces with different hydrophobic domain sizes (10 or 19 nm) using amphiphilic ABA-type block copolymers composed of hydrophilic poly(2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylc...
