Supramolecular polymeric peptide amphiphile vesicles for the encapsulation of basic fibroblast growth factor

Author affiliations

Abstract

The synthesis of a supramolecular double hydrophilic peptide-conjugated polymer held together by cucurbit[8]uril (CB[8]) ternary complexation and its subsequent temperature triggered self-assembly into vesicles are described. Basic fibroblast growth factor can be easily loaded into the vesicles under benign conditions and their bioactivities can be preserved without the need for excipients such as heparin.
