“Stretch-dependent changes in molecular conformation in fibronectin nanofibers”

John Szymanksi, Emily Sevcik and Kairui Zhang are co-authors on our recent article in Biomaterials Science entitled “Stretch-dependent changes in molecular conformation in fibronectin nanofibers.” This article is part of the Biomaterials Science Emerging Investigators 2017 issue of the journal. In the article we used AFM imaging of fibronectin nanofibers over a wide range of deformations to understand how reversible molecular unfolding contributes to the mechanical properties of extracellular matrix proteins.
