The cytoskeleton is formed by three types of filamentous proteins - microtubules, actin filaments, and intermediate filaments (IFs) - and enables cells to withstand external and internal forces. Vimentin is the most abundant IF protein in humans and assembles into 10 nm diameter filaments with remarkable mechanical properties, such as high extensibility and stability. It is, however, unclear to which extent these properties are influenced by the electrostatic environment. Here, we study the mech...

Soft actuators with the integration of facile preparation, rapid actuation rate, sophisticated motions, and precise control over deformation for the applications in complex devices is still highly desirable. Inspired by the aligned structures of moisture responsive pineal scales, an oil-triggered Janus actuator composed of a smooth hydrophobic surface and a superhydrophobic surface with aligned microchannels by simple laser etching was fabricated successfully, which can deform into various desir...

Whilst there is an extensive body of preclinical nanomedicine research, translation to clinical settings has been slow. Here we present a novel approach to the targeted nanoparticle (NP) concept: utilizing both a novel targeting ligand, VNAR (Variable New Antigen Receptor), a shark-derived single chain binding domain, and an under-investigated target in delta-like ligand 4 (DLL4). We describe the development of an anti-DLL4 VNAR and the site-specific conjugation of this to poly(lactic-co-glycoli...

The core-shell structured materials constructed by Fe/Fe3C cores and nitrogen doped carbon shells represent a type of promising non-precious oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) catalysts due to well-established active sites at the interface positions. However, the traditional liquid phase polymerization route for preparing such materials normally leads to a compact macropore-deficient structure with randomly dispersed metallic nanoparticles, being not good for mass transfer and formation of high-den...

To date, carbon dots (CDs) or carbon quantum dots (CQDs), considered as alternatives to conventional fluorescent materials such as organic dyes and semiconductor quantum dots (QDs), have drawn significant attention from relevant researchers due to their superior properties, including nontoxicity, biocompatibility, low cost and facile synthesis, and high photoluminescence. In particular, doping heteroatoms with CDs can not only dramatically enhance the fluorescence but also greatly improve the el...

Magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (IONPs) have wide applications in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), biomedicine, drug delivery, hyperthermia therapy, catalysis, magnetic separation, and others. However, these applications are usually limited by irreversible agglomeration of IONPs in aqueous media because of their dipole-dipole interactions, as well as their poor stability. A protecting polymeric shell provides the IONPs with not only enhanced long-term stability, but also functionality of poly...

The self-assembly of DNA hybrids possessing tetraphenylethylene sticky ends at both sides into vesicular architectures in aqueous medium is demonstrated. Cryo-electron microscopy reveals the formation of different types of morphologies from the amphiphilic DNA-hybrids. Depending on the conditions, either an extended (sheet-like) or a compact (columnar) alignment of the DNA hybrids is observed. The different modes of DNA arrangement lead to the formation of vesicles appearing either as prolate el...

Two-dimensional (2D) ferromagnetic (FM) semiconductors with direct electric band gap have recently drawn much attention due to their promising potential for spintronic and magneto-optical applications. However, the Curie temperatures (TC) of recent synthesized 2D FM semiconductors are too low (~45 K) and a room-temperature 2D direct band gap FM semiconductor has never been reported, which hinders the development for practical applications. Here, we show that through isovalent alloying, one can i...

Chirality is common in nature, describing not only the geometrical property of a three-dimensional object, but also an intrinsic feature of an optical field. Chiral optical fields are acquiring increasing attention due to their potential applications in chiral light-matter interaction. Here we demonstrate a strategy to realize a controllable chiral optical field by tightly focusing two tailored vector beams in a 4π optical microscopic system. By modulating the wavefronts of the incident vector b...

We report here that dissolution and regrowth of resorcinol formaldehyde (RF) colloidal particles can occur spontaneously when they are subjected to etching in solvents such as ethanol and tetrahydrofuran, resulting in the formation of hollow nanostructures with controllable shell thickness. The hollowing process of the RF particles is attributed to their structural inhomogeneity, which is resulting from the successive deposition of oligomers with different chain lengths during their initial grow...
