A Surface-charge Study on Cellular-uptake Behavior of F3-peptide-conjugated Iron Oxide Nanoparticles
Small (Weinheim an Der Bergstrasse, Germany). Sep, 2009 | Pubmed ID: 19554564
Surface-charge measurements of mammalian cells in terms of Zeta potential are demonstrated as a useful biological characteristic in identifying cellular interactions with specific nanomaterials. A theoretical model of the changes in Zeta potential of cells after incubation with nanoparticles is established to predict the possible patterns of Zeta-potential change to reveal the binding and internalization effects. The experimental results show a distinct pattern of Zeta-potential change that allows the discrimination of human normal breast epithelial cells (MCF-10A) from human cancer breast epithelial cells (MCF-7) when the cells are incubated with dextran coated iron oxide nanoparticles that contain tumor-homing F3 peptides, where the tumor-homing F3 peptide specifically bound to nucleolin receptors that are overexpressed in cancer breast cells.

Myocardial tissue lacks the ability to significantly regenerate itself following a myocardial infarction, thus tissue engineering strategies are required for repair. Several injectable materials have been examined for cardiac tissue engineering; however, none have been designed specifically to mimic the myocardium. The goal of this study was to investigate the in vitro properties and in vivo potential of an injectable myocardial matrix designed to mimic the natural myocardial extracellular environment. Porcine myocardial tissue was decellularized and processed to form a myocardial matrix with the ability to gel in vitro at 37 degrees C and in vivo upon injection into rat myocardium. The resulting myocardial matrix maintained a complex composition, including glycosaminoglycan content, and was able to self-assemble to form a nanofibrous structure. Endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells were shown to migrate towards the myocardial matrix both in vitro and in vivo, with a significant increase in arteriole formation at 11 days post-injection. The matrix was also successfully pushed through a clinically used catheter, demonstrating its potential for minimally invasive therapy. Thus, we have demonstrated the initial feasibility and potential of a naturally derived myocardial matrix as an injectable scaffold for cardiac tissue engineering.

Current injectable materials utilized in myocardial tissue engineering have been borrowed from other tissue engineering applications and have not been specifically designed for the myocardium. We have recently tested the feasibility of using an injectable form of myocardial extracellular matrix that would provide cardiac specific matrix cues as well as be amenable to minimally invasive delivery. We have demonstrated that this material self-assembles in vivo to form a nanofibrous scaffold, which supports the infiltration of neovasculature. We have also demonstrated that this material may be delivered minimally invasively through a catheter.
Injectable Materials for the Treatment of Myocardial Infarction and Heart Failure: the Promise of Decellularized Matrices
Journal of Cardiovascular Translational Research. Oct, 2010 | Pubmed ID: 20632221
Cardiovascular disease continues to be the leading cause of death, suggesting that new therapies are needed to treat the progression of heart failure post-myocardial infarction. As cardiac tissue has a limited ability to regenerate itself, experimental biomaterial therapies have focused on the replacement of necrotic cardiomyocytes and repair of the damaged extracellular matrix. While acellular and cellular cardiac patches are applied surgically to the epicardial surface of the heart, injectable materials offer the prospective advantage of minimally invasive delivery directly into the myocardium to either replace the damaged extracellular matrix or to act as a scaffold for cell delivery. Cardiac-specific decellularized matrices offer the further advantage of being biomimetic of the native biochemical and structural matrix composition, as well as the potential to be autologous therapies. This review will focus on the requirements of an ideal scaffold for catheter-based delivery as well as highlight the promise of decellularized matrices as injectable materials for cardiac repair.

Injectable materials offer the potential for minimally invasive therapy for myocardial infarction (MI), either as an acellular scaffold or as a cell delivery vehicle. A recently developed myocardial matrix hydrogel, derived from decellularized porcine ventricular tissue, has the potential to aid in cardiac repair following an MI. Herein, we set out to study the effects of cross-linking on the cardiac hydrogel stiffness, degradation properties, cellular migration, and catheter injectability in vitro. Cross-linking increased stiffness, while slowing degradation and cellular migration through the gels. Additionally, the cross-linked material was pushed through a clinically relevant catheter. These results demonstrate that the material properties of myocardial matrix can be tuned via cross-linking, while maintaining appropriate viscosity for catheter injectability.
