Visualization of drug delivery processes using AIEgens
We summarize the recent development of AIEgen based theranostic DDSs for the visualization of drug delivery processes.
Immunological properties of gold nanoparticles
This review summarizes what is known about the application of gold nanoparticles as an antigen carrier and adjuvant in immunization for the preparation of antibodies in vivo and evaluating their potential for the development of effective vaccines.
Antibody fragments as nanoparticle targeting ligands: a step in the right direction
Recent advances in nanomedicine have shown that dramatic improvements in nanoparticle therapeutics and diagnostics can be achieved through the use of disease specific targeting ligands.
How molecular motors work – insights from the molecular machinist's toolbox: the Nobel prize in Chemistry 2016
The Nobel prize in Chemistry for 2016 was awarded to Jean Pierre Sauvage, Sir James Fraser Stoddart, and Bernard (Ben) Feringa for their contributions to the design and synthesis of molecular machines.
Double quick, double click reversible peptide “stapling”
A versatile, rapid and reversible approach to constrain peptides in a bioactive helical conformation and bearing a functional handle for inhibition of protein–protein interactions is described.
Formicamycins, antibacterial polyketides produced by Streptomyces formicae isolated from African Tetraponera plant-ants
Ant pharming: antibacterial polyketides from plant-ant associated bacteria.
DNA-barcoded labeling probes for highly multiplexed Exchange-PAINT imaging
We report the development of multiplexed cellular super-resolution imaging using DNA-barcoded binders.
Photoactivatable aggregation-induced emission probes for lipid droplets-specific live cell imaging
Photoactivatable probes for lipid droplets (LDs)-specific live-cell imaging are powerful tools for investigating their biological functions through precise spatial and temporal control.
AIE-active theranostic system: selective staining and killing of cancer cells
A mitochondrion-specific AIEgen is a theranostic molecule, with the function of lighting up and killing cancer cells rather than normal cells.
Green- to far-red-emitting fluorogenic tetrazine probes – synthetic access and no-wash protein imaging inside living cells
Fluorogenic probes for bioorthogonal labeling chemistry are highly beneficial to reduce background signal in fluorescence microscopy imaging.
Reversible ratiometric detection of highly reactive hydropersulfides using a FRET-based dual emission fluorescent probe
A ratiometric fluorescent probe that can visualize endogenously produced hydropersulfides has been developed.
