Abstract

The aim of this study is to engineer a biocompatible and stretchable hydrogel with tunable mechanical, electrical, and biological properties based on recombinant human tropoelastin and graphene oxide (GO) nanoparticles. Tropoelastin is the dominant physiological component of elastin, where upon crosslinking it conveys both elasticity and biological activity. The study uses GO nanoparticles to form conductive and elastomeric methacryloyl-substituted tropoelastin (MeTro)/GO hybrid hydrogels. GO is utilized due to its flexibility, biocompatibility, and ease of dispersion in aqueous solutions.
