Programmable dynamic steady states in ATP-driven nonequilibrium DNA systems

Read the full article here: Science Advances, 2019, DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aaw0590 Inspired by the dynamics of the dissipative self-assembly of microtubules, chemically fueled synthetic systems with transient lifetimes are emerging for nonequilibrium materials design. However, realizing programmable or even adaptive structural dynamics has proven challenging because it requires synchronization of energy uptake and dissipation events within true steady states, which remains difficult to orthogonally control in supramolecular systems. Here, we demonstrate full synchronization of both events by ATP-fueled activation and dynamization of covalent DNA bonds via an enzymatic reaction network of concur

Long-Term Bone Regeneration Enabled by a Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxane (POSS)-Enhanced Biodeg

Read the full article here: ACS Biomater. Sci. Eng, 2019, DOI: 10.1021/acsbiomaterials.9b00642 The development of artificial bone substitutes mimicking the extracellular matrix is a promising strategy for bone repair and regeneration. However, the preparation of materials tailored to feature sufficient mechanical properties, appropriate degradation rates, and favorable osteoinductivity continues to be a great challenge. Hydrogels from biopolymers have emerged as viable substitutes in bone regeneration, but they often suffer from insufficient mechanical strength and rapid degradation rate, critically limiting their clinical applicability. Here, we demonstrate that inorganic/biopolymer hybrid
