  2. Electromagnetized gold nanoparticles mediate direct lineage reprogramming into induced dopamine neurons in vivo for Parkinson's disease therapy AOP

    Skip authorsShow fewer authors

    A proof-of-principle study shows that electromagnetic field-based in vivo lineage conversion can be used as a therapeutic strategy for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders.

  3. Building membrane nanopores

    This Review examines the different building materials for membrane nanopores—proteins, peptides, synthetic organic molecules, and DNA—and explores the influence of the building material on pore structure, dynamics, function, and application.

  4. Antigen-capturing nanoparticles improve the abscopal effect and cancer immunotherapy AOP

    Skip authorsShow fewer authors

    Nanoparticles can be utilized to capture tumour antigens and improve their presentation, which in turn improves the efficacy of cancer immunotherapy.

  5. Probing dark excitons in atomically thin semiconductors via near-field coupling to surface plasmon polaritons AOP

    Skip authorsShow fewer authors

    Near-field coupling to surface plasmon polaritons enables the observation of spin-forbidden dark excitonic states in monolayer WSe2.

  6. Monitoring the orientation of rare-earth-doped nanorods for flow shear tomography AOP

    Skip authorsShow fewer authors

    Polarized photoluminescence spectra of europium-doped nanorods can be used to measure the local shear rate profile of a liquid in microfluidic channels.

  7. Sulfated glycopeptide nanostructures for multipotent protein activation AOP

    Skip authorsShow fewer authors

    Highly bioactive supramolecular nanostructures displaying sulfated glycopeptides on their surfaces were designed in order to mimic the polysaccharides that bind and activate a plethora of proteins in mammalian biology during development and tissue regeneration.

  8. Fundamental transport mechanisms, fabrication and potential applications of nanoporous atomically thin membranes

    Skip authorsShow fewer authors

    This Review examines the development of nanoporous atomically thin membranes, focusing on fundamental mechanisms of gas- and liquid-phase transport, membrane fabrication techniques, and advances towards practical applications.

  9. Nanoscale manipulation of membrane curvature for probing endocytosis in live cells AOP

    Skip authorsShow fewer authors

    Nanoscale plasma membrane curvature, generated in a controllable fashion by vertically aligned nanostructure arrays, promotes the accumulation of key endocytic proteins in live cells.
