Enzyme-coated Janus nanoparticles that selectively bind cell receptors as a function of the concentration of glucose

Author affiliations

Abstract

A method is proposed for controlling the number of nanoparticles bound to cell membranes via RGDS peptide–integrin interactions. It consists of propelling nanoparticles bearing the peptides with enzymes (glucose oxidase), which disrupts biomolecular interactions as a function of the concentration of enzyme substrate (glucose).
