Marycz K, Marędziak M, Grzesiak J, Szarek D, Lis A, Laska J (2016) Polyurethane/polylactide-blend films doped with zinc ions for the growth and expansion of human olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) and adipose-derived mesenchymal stromal stem cells (ASCs) for regenerative medicine applications. Polymers (Basel 8(5):175. doi: 10.3390/polym8050175 PMID: 30979270
Objective: To show that polyurethane/polylactide blends (PU/PLDL) may be further improved by the addition of ZnO nanoparticles for the delivery of bioactive zinc oxide for cells.
Summary: The researchers showed that PU/PLDL blends doped with 0.001% of ZnO exert beneficial influence on adipose stromal stem cells and olfactory ensheathing cells in vitro.
Usage: Immunofluorescence staining to verify the p75+/GFAP+ phenotype of olfactory ensheathing cells (1:1000)
