Bioinspired carrier-free peptide conjugated BF2-oxasmaragdyrin dye-based nano self-assemblies: a photostable NIR cancer theragnostic agent

Synthesis and characterization The target BF2-25-oxasmaragdyrin-diphenylalanine conjugate 1 was prepared in a sequence of four steps (Scheme 1). The starting BF2-25-oxasmaragdyrin 2, containing a p-carboxymethylphenyl substituent at the meso position, was synthesized via a previously...

3D projection electrophoresis for single-cell immunoblotting

Establishing projection electrophoresis as an analytical tool In lieu of serial interrogation and electrophoretic analysis of individual mammalian cells, projection electrophoresis (Fig. 1a) yields synchronous, concurrent analyses of hundreds of single cells. Compared to serial-cell measurements, the...

Plant-inspired alkaloids protect rice, kiwi and citrus from harmful bacteria

Plants get bacterial infections, just as humans do. When food crops and trees are infected, their yield and quality can suffer. Although some compounds have been developed to protect plants, few of them work...
