A series of telodendrimer (a linear polyethyelene glycol-block-dendritic oligo-cholic acid) have been synthesized via a bottom-up approach to optimize the hemocompatibility of the nanocarrier. Numbers of hydrophilic glycerol groups were introduced onto the polar surface of cholic acid to reduce the plasma membrane lytic activity of telodendrimers. An(More)
Cisplatin (CDDP) and paclitaxel (PTX) are two established chemotherapeutic drugs used in combination for the treatment of many cancers, including ovarian cancer. We have recently developed a three-layered linear-dendritic telodendrimer micelles (TM) by introducing carboxylic acid groups in the adjacent layer via "thio-ene" click chemistry for CDDP(More)
To develop a feasible and efficient nanocarrier for potential clinical application, a series of photo and redox dual responsive reversibly cross-linked micelles have been developed for the targeted anticancer drug delivery. The nanocarrier can be cross-linked efficiently via a clean, efficient, and controllable coumarin photodimerization within the(More)
Certain natural products such as gambogic acid (GA) exhibit potent antitumor effects. Unfortunately, administration of these natural products is limited by their poor solubility in conventional pharmaceutical solvents. In this study, a series of telodendrimers, composed of linear polyethylene glycol (PEG)-blocking-dendritic oligomer of cholic acid (CA) and(More)
Four coumarin-containing telodendrimers (denoted as P-I, P-II, P-III and P-IV) were designed and synthesized to self-assemble into the corresponding nanoparticles. Of those, two nanoparticles (P-II and P-IV micelles) were screened and selected for targeted drug delivery of 7-ethyl-10-hydroxy camptothecin (SN-38), a prominent and efficacious anticancer(More)
A series of novel 1,5-Diphenyl-2-penten-1-one analogues (7a-h, 8a-h) with piperazine moiety have been designed and synthesized on the basis of natural product 1,5-Diphenyl-2-penten-1-one (I). All the synthesized compounds were evaluated in vitro for anti-plant pathogenic fungi activities and insecticidal activities. The results indicated that most of these(More)
BACKGROUND Take-all of wheat, caused by the soil-borne fungus Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici, is one of the most important and widespread root diseases. Given that take-all is still hard to control, it is necessary to develop new effective agrochemicals. Pyrazole derivatives have been often reported for their favorable bioactivities. In order to(More)
