Abstract Supramolecular structure can be formed using noncovalent interactions based on the self-assembly processes. DNA is a good example for supramolecular materials because it is able to form supramolecular structure by forming specific hydrogen bonds between its base pairs. Moreover, DNA as an anionic medium can bind with oppositely charged materials to form complex structures of various shapes and properties. This work is focused on a foam complex that is formed between negatively charged DNA and positive chitosan. Various characterizations —Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Small and Wide-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS and WAXS), scanning electron microscope (SEM), texture analyzer and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) — are used to study the properties of this dried scaffold. The FTIR spectra presented the chemical structure of DNA and chitosan. While the SAXS power law decay has revealed that an increasing of chitosan content smoothens the surface of the structure, on the other hand, the roughness is much higher when the DNA content is increased. The melting point of the foam from the DSC scan has been identified. The mechanical property of foam is suitable for the application of scaffold, and there is no cytotoxicity of foam to the cell. It is expected that this type of biomaterial could be used in several applications such as functional material and as a drug delivery material.

Investigating the constitutive relationship of a material can provide better understanding of the mechanical properties of a material and has an irreplaceable effect on optimizing the performance of a material. This paper investigated a constitutive model for tungsten/polymethyl-methacrylate (W/PMMA) composite microcellular foams prepared by using melt mixing and supercritical carbon dioxide foaming. The stress-strain relationships of these foams with different W contents were measured under sta...

Abstract The control of the glycemic level among diabetes/T2 patients is very important for their long term survival and avoiding further complexities including micro/macrovascular diseases as well as diabetic neuropathy. Vildagliptin (VD) is a drug that has addressed these issues successfully with the desired safety portfolio. We used DNA-nanocubes for initial nano-encapsulation of VD followed by HPMC/EC coating. The results revealed the stable, smooth, spherical and nano-sized nanoparticles wi...

This review highlights the recent developments in nucleic acid-based based materials for biomedical applications and functional devices. DNA and RNA are anionic macromolecules composing sugar-phosphate backbone, which usually structure as rod-like double helix with base pair stacking. Electrostatic interactions are the main components in the complex formed between anionic nucleic acid and cationic molecule. These nucleic acid-based biopolymers have significant potential as functional materials f...

During the last decade biomaterial sciences and tissue engineering have become new scientific fields supplying rising demand of regenerative therapy. Tissue engineering requires consolidation of a broad knowledge of cell biology and modern biotechnology investigating biocompatibility of materials and their application for the reconstruction of damaged organs and tissues. Stem cell-based tissue regeneration started from the direct cell transplantation into damaged tissues or blood vessels. Howeve...

AbstractSilk fibroin/chitosan blend has been reported to be an attractive biomaterial that provides a 3D porous structure with controllable pore size and mechanical property suitable for tissue engineering applications. However, there is no systematic study for optimizing the ratio of silk fibroin (SF) and chitosan (CS) which seems to influence the scaffold property to a great extent. The present research, therefore, investigates the effect of blend ratio of SF and CS on scaffold property and es...

In this report we investigate and compare the characteristics of the cooperative-assembly of double-stranded DNA and random coil poly(styrene sulfonate) mixed with didodecyldimethylammonium bromide (DDAB). Film formation is attributed primarily to electrostatic interactions between anionic phosphate or sulfonate groups (DNA or PSS) and cationic ammonium groups of DDAB. It appears that the elasticity and morphology of such films are dependent on the length and the structure of polymers. Ethidium ...

Here we report on the characterization of transparent supramolecular films blended with negatively charged polymers with cationic amphiphiles. The films are prepared by conjugating, through electrostatics, the cationic amphiphiles to the poly(nucleotide) backbone then through hydrophobic interactions, in consequence, to form amphiphatic films. Fourier-transformed infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) spectra present the chemical structure of the poly(nucleotide) and cationic amphiphile in the films. Hom...

Nika is an Igor Pro-based package for correction, calibration and reduction of two-dimensional area-detector data into one-dimensional data (`lineouts'). It is free (although the user needs a paid license for Igor Pro), open source and highly flexible. While typically used for small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) data, it can also be used for grazing-incidence SAXS data, wide-angle diffraction data and even small-angle neutron scattering data. It has been widely available to the user community si...

Abstract In this study, a new scaffold fabrication method based on the combination of a series of stabilization processes was set up to obtain chitosan scaffolds with improved mechanical properties for regeneration of load-bearing tissues. Specifically, thermally induced phase separation (TIPS) of chitosan solutions was used to obtain an open structure which was then stabilized by freeze-gelation and photo cross-linking. Freeze-gelation combined with freeze-drying permitted to obtain a porous st...

Abstract Combinations of protein and carbohydrate scaffold, bovine serum albumin (BSA) and cassava starch, have been used as materials to fabricate 3D scaffolds using an in-house developed freeze-drying method. Using this method, the BSA/starch generated a stable foam-type scaffold while the BSA alone could not maintain a rigid structure. The albumin/starch scaffolds had a porous structure and indicated the secondary structures of protein in the Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) stu...
Chitosan is one of the most studied cationic polysaccharides, due to its unique characteristics which makes this macromolecules highly attractive for a broad range of applications. In addition, its complex behavior and the number of ways it interacts with the different components in the system results in an astonishing variety of chitosan-based materials available. Herein, we present a physico-chemical perspective of recent advances in the field of chitosan-based materials, with focus on aqueous...

Polymer foams are an important class of engineering material that are finding diverse applications, including as structural parts in automotive industry, insulation in construction, core materials for sandwich composites, and cushioning in mattresses. The vast majority of these manufactured foams are homogeneous with respect to porosity and structural properties. In contrast, while cellular materials are also ubiquitous in nature, nature mostly fabricates heterogeneous foams, e.g., cellulosic pl...
