Programmed hydrolysis of nanoassemblies by electrostatic interaction-mediated enzymatic-degradation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Electrostatic interaction-mediated enzymatic-hydrolysis of poly(lactide)-containing nanoscale assemblies is described. At physiological pH, degradable core–shell morphologies with charged shells can readily attract or repel enzymes carrying opposite or similar charges, respectively.
