Abstract

A redox-responsive hydrogel composed of poly(ethylene glycol) and gelatin was prepared via an enzymatic oxidative reaction. Fibroblast cells adhered on the hydrogel showed proliferation and they could be recovered as a cell sheet by degradation of the scaffold under mild reductive conditions, thus providing a novel platform for cell culture.
