51_03b/2012Back Cover: Reinforced Multifunctionalized Nanofibrous Scaffolds Using Mussel Adhesive Proteins (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 3/2012)

Sticky nanofibrous scaffolds based on mussel adhesive proteins (MAPS) can be functionalized with diverse types of biomolecules. In their Communication on page 675 ff., H. J. Cha and co-workers report that the adhesive and chemical properties of MAPS are conducive to functionalization without surface modification. These nanofibers show promise for tissue engineering applications.
