Boronic acid liposomes for cellular delivery and content release driven by carbohydrate binding

Author affiliations

Abstract

Boronic acid liposomes enable triggered content release and cell delivery driven by carbohydrate binding. Dye release assays using hydrophilic and hydrophobic fluorophores validate dose-dependent release upon carbohydrate treatment. Microscopy results indicate dramatic enhancements in cell delivery, showcasing the prospects of boronic acid lipids for drug delivery.
