In this study, peptides with sequences and notations as KLELKLELKLEL (KLEL), KLDVKLDVKLDV (KLDV), KLDVKLDVKLKV (KLKV1), KLKVKLDVKLKV (KLKV2), KLKVKLKVKLKV (KLKV3) were synthesized using solid phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) method based on Fmoc chemistry. Reverse phase HPLC and MALDI-TOF mass spectroscopy characterization methods were used to assess the purity of the peptides. Three different synthesis procedures were tested, and it was found that employing DMF:DMSO at 1:1 ratio as a solvent increased purity of the resultant peptide. FTIR results indicated the presence of expected β-sheet secondary structure, as well as an interference band from TFA salts for all of the peptides. All the peptides formed hydrogels at pH 7.4 with 1 wt% concentration in deionized water (DIW). AFM results of these hydrogels indicated that KLKV1 and KLKV2 had fibrous morphology with a width of 5-20 nm and 7-18 nm respectively. KLDV and KLKV3 peptide hydrogels, on the other hand, exhibited globular structures, having sizes with 15-50 nm and 8-15 nm, respectively. Storage moduli (G’) of these hydrogels in DIW were obtained as ~860 ± 150 Pa, ~260 ± 60 Pa, ~210 ± 30 Pa and ~1850 ± 200 Pa for KLDV, KLKV1, KLKV2 and KLKV3 respectively. Of these peptides, only HCl salt of KLDV and KLKV1 peptides more readily formed hydrogels in PBS but at 1.5 wt% concentration. G’ values of these KLDV and KLKV1 hydrogels were determined as ~1810 ± 850 Pa and ~700 ± 230 Pa, respectively. Cell proliferation tests (CCK-8 assay) of KLDV and KLKV1 hydrogels were performed by using L929 mouse fibroblast cells. Empty wells (TCPS) were used as a control group. Cell proliferation was observed to be comparable for both select hydrogels and empty wells, suggesting possible applications of these hydrogels in tissue engineering.
