Flaviviruses are among the most critical pathogens in tropical regions and cause a growing number of severe diseases in developing countries. The development of antiviral therapeutics is crucial for managing flavivirus outbreaks. Among the ten proteins encoded in the flavivirus RNA, non-structural protein 5, NS5, is a promising drug target. Read More

Although the presence of small-scale plastics, including nanoscale plastic debris (NPD, size <1 μm), is expected in the environment, our understanding of their potential uptake and biodistribution in organisms is still limited. This mostly is because of the limitations in analytical techniques to characterize NPD in organisms' bodies. Moreover, it is still debatable whether aged NPD can sorb and transfer chemicals into organisms. Read More

There has been a surge of interest in interfacial hypochlorous acid (HOCl) chemistry for indoor air quality and public health. Here we combined nanoelectrospray mass spectrometry (nESI-MS) and acoustic levitation (AL) techniques to study the chlorination chemistry of three model lipids (DPPE, POPG, DOPG) mediated by HOCl at the air-water interface of levitated water droplet. For DPPE with no CC double bonds, HOCl was insensitive to the alkane chains, and showed considerable delay directing to head amino groups compared to that in aqueous environment. Read More

Oxaliplatin is a platinum-based drug used in clinic for cancer chemotherapy. Despite of its success, the non-selective effect on normal cells causes severe side-effects and hampers its applications. Targeted delivery of oxaliplatin to cancer cells is an effective approach to enhance drug efficacy and reduce adverse effect. Read More
