Polyelectrolyte multilayer (PEM) capsules engineered with active elements for targeting, labeling, sensing and delivery hold great promise for the controlled delivery of drugs and the development of new sensing platforms. PEM capsules composed of biodegradable polyelectrolytes are fabricated for intracellular delivery of encapsulated cargo (for example(More)
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases. Genes which have been implicated in autosomal-recessive PD include PARK2 which codes for parkin, an E3 ubiquitin ligase that participates in a variety of cellular activities. In this study, we compared parkin-mutant primary fibroblasts, from a patient with parkin compound(More)
Acidification of eukaryotic cell compartments is accomplished by vacuolar H+-ATPases (V-ATPases), large multisubunit complexes able to pump protons into the lumen of organelles or in the extracellular medium. V-ATPases are involved in a number of physiological cellular processes, and thus regulation of V-ATPase activity is of crucial importance for the(More)
