Biological self-assembly of injectable hydrogel as cell scaffold via specific nucleobase pairing

Author affiliations

Abstract

A biological hydrogel was self-assembled via Watson–Crick base pairing of thymine and adenine from functionalized star poly(ethylene glycol). Our work should provide a novel methodology to generate robust injectable scaffolds with tailorable properties for biomedical applications.
