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)
Eutrophication due to non-point source (NPS) of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) has become a serious pollution problem in many Chinese rivers. In this paper, the export coefficient model (ECM) was used to assess the influence of NPS on N and P loading to the Three Gorges Reservoir Area (TGRA) of Hubei Province, People's Republic of China. Data from the main(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)
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)
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)
