A reactive oxygen species (ROS)-degradable scaffold is fabricated by crosslinking biocompatible, hydrolytically-degradable poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) with a ROS-degradable oligoproline peptide, KPK. The ROS-mediated degradability triggers favorable host responses of the scaffold including improved cell infiltration and angiogenesis , indicating its unique advantages for tissue engineering applications.
