Immobilized transforming growth factor-beta 1 in a stiffness-tunable artificial extracellular matrix enhances mechanotransduction in the epithelial mesenchymal transition of hepatocellular carcinoma

from ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces

Cancer progression is regulated by multiple factors of extracellular matrix (ECM). This study proposed a strategy to build a thin biomaterial matrix by poly(l-lysine) and hyaluronan as an artificial stiffness-tunable ECM. Transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-β1) was used as a biochemical cue to present in an immobilized and spatially controlled manner, with a high loading efficiency of 90%. Further investigation revealed that i-TGF increased the specific TGF-β1 receptor (TβRI) expression to activate PI3K pathway. more
