dc.description.abstract Designing programmable biomaterials that could act as extracellular matrices and permit functionalization is a current need for tissue engineering advancement. DNA based hydrogels are gaining significant attention owing to their self-assembling properties, biocompatibility, chemical robustness and low batch to batch variability. The real potential of DNA hydrogels in the biomedical domain remains to be explored. In this work, a DNA hydrogel was coated on a glass surface and coupled to a synthetic IKVAV peptide by a chemical crosslinker. We observe enhanced neuronal differentiation, prolonged neurite length, dynamic movement of microtubules and cytoskeleton, and altered endocytic mechanisms in neuroblastoma-based stem cells for the peptide modified DNA hydrogel compared to the unmodified DNA hydrogel and controls. We anticipate that a peptide-modified DNA hydrogel could emerge as a promising scaffold coating material to develop nerve tissue conduits in the future for application in neuroscience and neuroregeneration.
