Beijing National Laboratory for Molecular Sciences; Key Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry for Living Biosystems, Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing 100190, P. R. China.

Sialic acid (SA) is an important monosaccharide that is involved in incurable cancer immunotherapy. However, it is difficult to detect SA in situ using the existing strategy based on the SA-terminated glycopeptide extraction from the cell lysate. The countermeasures of the bottleneck caused by cell disruption and peptide extraction should be designed based on a "cell-surface attachment and controlled enzymolysis" protocol. Read More

Reduction-Responsive Anticancer Nanodrug Using a Full Poly(ethylene glycol) Carrier.

ACS Appl Mater Interfaces 2021 Apr 20;13(16):19387-19397. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

MOE Key Laboratory of Macromolecular Synthesis and Functionalization, Department of Polymer Science and Engineering, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou 310027, China.

Poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) is applied extensively in biomedical fields because of its nontoxic, nonimmunogenic, and protein resistance properties. However, the strong hydrophilicity of PEG prevents it from self-assembling into an amphiphilic micelle in water, making it a challenge to fabricate a full-PEG carrier to deliver hydrophobic anticancer drugs. Herein, a paclitaxel (PTX)-loaded nanodrug was readily prepared through self-assembly of PTX and an amphiphilic PEG derivative, which was synthesized via melt polycondensation of two PEG diols (i.

Anal Chim Acta 2021 May 16;1158:338412. Epub 2021 Mar 16.

Shanghai Key Laboratory of Functional Materials Chemistry,School of Chemistry & Molecular Engineering, East China University of Science and Technology, Shanghai, PR China.

In this work, a dual-functionalized magnetic bimetallic metal-organic framework composite denoted as FeO@SiO@(Zr-Ti-MOF)-NH was ingeniously designed and fabricated by a facial layer-by-layer assembly technique. The composite not only exhibited strong affinity for phosphopeptide due to the coexistence of Zr-O clusters and Ti-O clusters, but also owned great hydrophilicity for glycopeptides relying on abundant hydrophilic NH groups, meeting the demand for simultaneously enrichment and sequential elution of phosphopeptides and glycopeptides. As expected, the synthesized composite showed great selectivity (1:2000 M ratio of β-casein:BSA; 1:50 M ratio of IgG:BSA), good sensitivity (1 fmol μL for both α-casein and IgG), and good capacity (80 mg g for α-casein and 200 mg g for IgG).

Chemical Structural Effects of Amphipathic and Water-soluble Phospholipid Polymers on Formulation of Solid Dispersions.

J Pharm Sci 2021 Apr 6. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Department of Materials Engineering, School of Engineering, The University of Tokyo, 7-3-1 Hongo, Bunkyo-Ku, Tokyo 113-8656, Japan.

For the polymeric carriers of solid dispersions, it is important that carriers themselves dissolve quickly and maintain the supersaturated state of amorphous drugs during their dissolution period to improve bioavailability. Amphipathic 2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine (MPC) polymers can be dissolved in water, owing to the extremely high hydrophilicity of the MPC units, and are used as an ideal feeder for drug molecules to form aggregates in aqueous conditions. We synthesized amphipathic MPC copolymers with different hydrophobic side chains and molar ratios of MPC units, and evaluated the effect of the polymers on dissolution rate and supersaturation maintenance of solid dispersions of indomethacin.

Polymer Science & Engineering Department, University of Massachusetts Amherst, Amherst, Massachusetts 01003, United States.

We describe the role of functional polymer surfactants in the construction and triggered collapse of droplet-based fibers and the use of these macroscopic supracolloidal structures for reagent compartmentalization. Copolymer surfactants containing both zwitterionic and tertiary amine pendent groups were synthesized for stabilization of oil-in-water droplets, in which the self-adherent properties of the selected zwitterions impart interdroplet adherence, while the amine groups provide access to pH-triggered coalescence. Macroscopic fibers, obtained by droplet extrusion, were prepared with reagents embedded in spatially distinct components of the fibers. Read More
