Book Description :

This thesis deals with the development of novel strategies for self-assembling biomaterials based on short beta-sheet fibril-forming peptides. These materials are potentially useful for a variety of biomedical applications, including tissue engineering and controlled drug release, and several aspects of these materials have been explored in this thesis in an effort to improve their clinical utility. First, a strategy for rapidly and uniformly triggering peptide self-assembly was developed. Stimulus-sensitive liposomes were utilized to sequester salts and release them in response to stimuli such as warming to body temperature or exposure to near infra-red light. Triggered salt release in turn initiated rapid self-assembly of extravesicular peptide and the transformation of the peptide/liposome suspension from a solution to a hydrogel. We show that peptide self-assembly can be rapidly, uniformly, and specifically triggered, with the storage modulus increasing three orders of magnitude upon triggering. This rapid triggering strategy is potentially useful for injectable biomaterial applications. In the second research thrust, a self-assembling peptide was developed that also possessed enzymatic activity for the cross-linking enzyme tissue transglutaminase. We then utilized tissue transglutaminase to conjugate cell-interactive peptides to the self-assembled structure and investigated cell attachment to these functionalized scaffolds. Such a strategy is potentially useful for designing biospecific self-assembling scaffolds for tissue engineering or wound healing. In the final research focus, to modulate the nanostructure of the self-assembled fibrillar structures, we developed a series of self-assembling polyethylene glycol-conjugated peptides. We found that polyethylene glycol conjugation significantly altered fibril morphology, including width, length, and degree of lateral aggregation. As previous beta-sheet fibrillar self-assembled materials have shown particular intransigence to such modification of the fibrillar structure, this strategy may be a useful route for tailoring the physical properties of these materials. As a whole, the strategies developed in this thesis address previous shortcomings of beta-sheet peptide-based self-assembling materials in an effort to bring them closer to clinical application.

Book Description :

The objective of this thesis was to design self-assembling biomaterials whose physical and biological properties can be systematically adjusted to modulate cell growth and differentiation. The intended applications of these biomaterials include defined 3D cell culture scaffolds as well as coatings for existing prosthetics. The complex and dynamic nature of extracellular matrices necessitates the precise integration and adjustment of multiple physical, chemical, and biological features within engineered biomaterials, but this has been challenging for previous scaffolds owing to the fact that these features tend not to be adjustable independently. Instead, these properties tend to be conflated and entangled, limiting the ability to systematically engineer scaffolds with multiple components. As a step towards addressing this issue, this thesis describes the development of a modular self-assembling biomaterial system capable of incorporating multiple physical or biological functions into precisely defined biomaterials without affecting other material properties. Three families of different biological and physical functionalities were designed, synthesized, and investigated: those that modulate matrix mechanics, those that mediate cell-matrix binding, and those that can release soluble effector molecules. All materials were based on a short, synthetic, self-assembling peptide sequence, Q11, which formed self-supporting hydrogels in physiological conditions. To independently modulate matrix mechanics, Q11 derivatives were developed possessing chemoselective functional groups that could be polymerized via native chemical ligation. This method produced significantly stiffened gels, which also significantly enhanced endothelial cell proliferation in an independent manner. To develop modular self-assembling ligand-bearing peptides, endothelial cell-interactive ligands, RGDS, REDV, IKVAV, and YIGSR amino acid sequences were added to the N-terminus of Q11 (X-Q11). The incorporation of X-Q11 into hydrogels was quantitative and did not significantly alter stiffness when different ligands were included in the hydrogels. The ligands were physically presented on the surface of fibrils, retained their biological activities, and interacted with cell surface receptors to modulate endothelial cell behaviors. To develop Q11 derivatives capable of releasing soluble effectors, Q11 peptides were synthesized containing a nitric oxide (NO) donor compound. The conjugation efficiency was about 88%, and fibril morphologies were not significantly altered by the NO donor compound, allowing quantitative incorporation of this peptide into Q11 hydrogels. The last stage of the project employed a statistical method, design of experiments, to capitalize upon the modularity of the developed co-assembling matrices, with the purpose of maximizing the growth of endothelial cells on the materials. Through several rounds of multifactorial experimentation, an optimal formulation of multiple peptides was determined, resulting in endothelial cell attachment and proliferation comparable to the native matrix protein, fibronectin. Such a calculation of an optimal formulation would be prohibitively costly, both in terms of time and materials, for conventional biomaterials not constructed in a modular fashion. These results suggested that modular Q11-based self-assembling systems enable facile manipulation of multiple factors, allowing the efficient targeting of a desired response, in this case endothelial cell growth. This approach should allow for the systematic design of biomaterials for a wide range of applications, without relying on ad hoc strategies.

Book Description :

Our broad long-term objective is to create novel biomaterials that advance the technical capabilities of the U.S. Army. In the short term, we seek to design self-assembling biomaterials that are adaptable in their structure and function. To do so, we must understand the molecular physicochemical aspects of biomaterials design, and we use three different systems to study this issue: 1) intermediate filaments, a class of protein with a broad range of structural roles from the nanometer to macroscale, as a model system; (2) self-assembled virus-based nanostructures, and (3) adiponectin, an adipocyteproduced hormone that serves as a soluble model system of higher order collagen. Such proteins may be harnessed for military purposes (eg. protective self-healing materials or nanoscale scaffolds) if one had a better understanding of how molecular structure determines material properties. In this final progress report, we summarize our studies on these systems.

Book Description :

Self-assembling peptide-based biomaterials are promising for use in biomedical applications due to their inherent extracellular matrix-like structure, comparable nanofiber dimensions and responsiveness to cells and proteins. Among them, short peptides and their derivatives have been studied because of their ease of synthesis and bottom-up design for controlling fibrillar supra-structure. In this dissertation, nucleo-tripeptides which can self-assemble into a hydrogel form were designed based on considerations of their gelation conditions and applications to functional cell scaffolds and controlled drug release. From the result of Fmoc modified short depsipeptides study, showing functional potential but cytotoxicity upon degradation, nucleobases were evaluated as a replacement for the Fmoc group. A small library, composed of 16 nucleo-tripeptides, was constructed in order to control the self-assembly conditions and to identify a molecule which can form a hydrogel under physiologic conditions. The resulting supra-structures were analyzed experimentally and computationally. We found that nucleo-tripeptides can self-assemble into nano-fibers which then lead to hydrogel formation under physiologic pH. Self-assembled nano-fibers have DNA-like structures, exhibiting nucleobase stacking and Watson-Crick-like interactions. By using these DNA-like structures as well as the self-healing capability of the nucleo-tripeptide hydrogel, applications as functional cell scaffolds and controlled drug release were studied. The self-assembled nucleo-tripeptide hydrogel can be functionalized via mixing with a second molecule having a complementary nucleobase via Watson-Crick interactions. A molecule possessing arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD), interacting with integrin located on the surface of cells, and a nucleobase was incorporated into the self-assembled nucleo-tripeptide hydrogel. This incorporation resulted in improved viability and cell attachment during 3D culture of fibroblasts. Nucleobase stacking structures were applied to the sequestration and controlled release of the doxorubicin, a cancer drug which exerts its action by intercalated DNA. The self-assembled nucleo-tripeptide hydrogel was able to load doxorubicin effectively through its DNA-like interactions, and in vitro and in vivo studies showed that controlled release of doxorubicin can inhibit tumor growth over a long-term period

Book Description :

The self-organization of bionanostructures into well-defined functional machineries found in nature has been a priceless source of ideas for researchers. The molecules of life, proteins, DNA, RNA, etc., as well as the structures and forms that these molecules assume serve as rich sources of ideas for scientists or engineers who are interested in developing bio-inspired materials for innovations in biomedical fields. In nature, molecular self-assembly is a process by which complex three-dimensional structures with well-defined functions are constructed, starting from simple building blocks such as proteins and peptides. This book introduces readers to the theory and mechanisms of peptide self-assembly processes. The authors present the more common peptide self-assembled building blocks and discuss how researchers from different fields can apply self-assembling principles to bionanotechnology applications. The advantages and challenges are mentioned together with examples that reflect the state of the art of the use of self-assembled peptide building blocks in nanotechnology.

Book Description :

A focus of the field of biomaterials is to use directed design to create new materials which replicate and enhance the intricate functions of the human body. Nature's own building blocks, peptides, are an ideal material to create self-assembling biomaterials as they are biodegradable, relatively easy to synthesize, and can be designed with a wide array of functions. In this dissertation, self-assembling peptide materials were optimized for two important medical applications: regenerative medicine and drug delivery. Peptide amphiphiles (PAs), peptides conjugated to fatty acid tails, can self-assemble into both spherical micelles and worm-like micelles. PA worm-like micelles are of particular interest for regenerative medicine applications for their ability to form viscoelastic hydrogels at high concentration. Here we created PA hydrogel systems with active formation and stabilization triggers that are amenable to in situ gelation. Two different methods of in situ gel formation in PA systems were investigated, shear force and pH. Shear-induced formation of worm-like micelles is demonstrated in the PA termed C16-W3K. Before shearing, C16-W3K PAs form spherical micelles in solution and exhibit little to no viscoelasticity. As the solution is subjected to simple shear flow with increasing shear rate, spherical micelles form elongated worm-like micelles up to microns in length. In the C16-W3K PA system, shear force induced the change not only of the micelle structure but also of the peptide secondary structure simultaneously. Worm-like micelle formation was also demonstrated using pH modulation, in the PA termed C16GSH, which was designed with a branched peptide headgroup of histidine and serine amino acids. At low pH, the histidine side chains are protonated and hydrogen bonding does not occur, creating weakly elastic hydrogels. At pH 7.4, above the pKa of the histidine imidazole group, cooperative hydrogen bonding occurs, stabilizing the self-assembled worm-like micelles and creating a strong viscoelastic hydrogel. This unique architecture of C16GSH makes it possible to create hydrogels spanning a wide range of stiffness (0.1-10 kPa). C16GSH were optimized in vitro and in vivo for the application of peripheral nerve regeneration. Peripheral nerve injury is a debilitating condition for which new bioengineering solutions are needed. One strategy to enhance regeneration inside nerve guide conduits is to fill the conduits with a hydrogel to mimic the native extracellular matrix found in peripheral nerves. C16GSH hydrogels were compared to a commercially available collagen gel, which has been previously investigated as a nerve guide filler gel. Schwann cells, a cell type important in the peripheral nerve regenerative cascade, were able to spread, proliferate and migrate better on C16GSH gels in vitro when compared to cells seeded on collagen gels. Moreover, C16GSH gels were implanted subcutaneously in a murine model and were found to be biocompatible, degrade over time, and support angiogenesis without causing inflammation or a foreign body immune response. Taken together, these results help optimize and instruct the development of a new synthetic, hydrogel as a luminal filler for conduit-mediated peripheral nerve repair. In the second half of this dissertation, peptide based complex coacervates were optimized for delivery of protein therapeutics. Complex coacervation is a liquid-liquid phase separation based on the electrostatic association of two oppositely charged polymers in aqueous solution. Coacervation results in micron sized droplets of a dense polymer-rich phase (coacervate) which is separate from the dilute polymer-poor solution phase (aqueous phase). Complex coacervates based on synthetic polypeptides have many desirable features for therapeutic protein delivery. They can be synthetically produced, can be made to be biocompatible and biodegradable, and their formation can be tuned by a wide array of parameters. In this dissertation, a method to encapsulate proteins by complex coacervation using polypeptides is explored. Protein encapsulation with a model protein system: bovine serum albumin (BSA) was demonstrated. Rheological properties were studied to determine the viscoelasticity which may have implications for cell internalization. It was demonstrated that there is tradeoff between loading efficiency and total loading. Therefore, depending on the application, high loading capacity, up to 1:3 molar ratio of protein to polypeptide, or 100% loading of the protein can be achieved, depending on the process and cost of the protein which is often high. Encapsulated BSA retained its secondary structure when encapsulated and was released under conditions of low pH due to disassembly of the coacervate. Lastly, protein loaded coacervates were shown to be non-toxic in a cell viability assay. Polypeptide complex coacervates show promise at encapsulating proteins for therapeutic delivery, but it is difficult to control their size and stability to due dynamic rearrangement and coalescence. To control the size and stability of polypeptide coacervates, the crosslinker EDC was used to create a peptide bond between the amino acid side groups of poly(L-lysine) (PLys) and poly(D/L-glutamic acid) (PGlu). By changing the ratio of PGlu to PLys colloidal stability was achieved without the need for an additional excipient. Surface charge of the particles was also controlled by this method. Final particle size was controlled by both molecular weight and concentration of the polypeptides. A span of particle diameter from to 272nm to 1.3 μm was achieved. Lastly, stability at low pH, where non-crosslinked coacervates disassemble, was demonstrated. A simple and tunable method to control particle size, such as the one presented here provides a possible solution to a major limitation in the field of drug delivery, control of particle size.
