Extracellular matrix-inspired assembly of glycosaminoglycan-collagen fibers

Abstract

We report on the fabrication of fibers exclusively from extracellular matrix components by interfacial complexation with no use of any crosslinking agent. The obtained fibers may have different biomedical applications as they are flexible, cell adhere to and remodel them. Moreover, their stability and thickness can be finely tuned by the sulfation degree of the used glycosaminoglycans.
