Glucose-responsive systems are significant for self-regulated insulin delivery. The aim of this study was to assess the potential of genipin-crosslinked concanavalin A/GEA-chitosan microgels as a glucose-responsive insulin delivery system. A chitosan derivative (GEA-chitosan) was designed in this study as the polymer ligand of concanavalin A (Con A), which(More)
Synthetic, hydrolytically degradable biomaterials have been widely developed for biomedical use; however, most of them will form acidic products upon degradation of polymer backbone. In order to address this concern, we proposed to fabricate a biodegradable gel based on the crosslinking of a cyclic acetal monomer with reactable diallyl group and(More)
Immunotherapy mediated by recombinant antibodies is an effective therapeutic strategy for a variety of cancers. In a previous study, we demonstrated that the fibroblast growth factor 1 (FGF-1)-specific recombinant antibody scFv1C9 arrests the cell cycle at the G0/G1 transition by blocking the intracrine FGF-1 pathway in breast cancer cells. Here, we further(More)
Efficient aggregation induced phosphorescence emission (AIPE) of an ionic Ir(iii) complex occurs when the counterion (PF6(-)) is exchanged specifically by ClO4(-) in aqueous media. As a result, a rapid, highly selective "turn-on" phosphorescent response to ClO4(-) is observed in aqueous media. These studies pave the way for a new efficient(More)
