Elastin-like polypeptides in drug delivery.
Valladolid, Spain. In Adv Drug Deliv Rev, Jan 2016
UNASSIGNED: The use of recombinant elastin-like materials, or elastin-like recombinamers (ELRs), in drug-delivery applications is reviewed in this work.
Evolution of the fish heart by sub/neofunctionalization of an elastin gene.
Tokyo, Japan. In Nat Commun, Dec 2015
Here we reveal that the teleost-specific extracellular matrix (ECM) gene, elastin b, was generated by the teleost-specific whole-genome duplication and neofunctionalized to contribute to acquisition of the BA by regulating cell fate determination of cardiac precursor cells into smooth muscle.
Recombinant protein-based polymers for advanced drug delivery.
Salt Lake City, United States. In Chem Soc Rev, 2012
Research into elastin-like, silk-like, and silk-elastinlike protein polymers for example has led to the development of delivery systems based on natural motifs of structural proteins to take advantage of their physicochemical properties.
