A quantum dot conjugated sugar ball and its cellular uptake. On the size effects of endocytosis in the subviral region.
The lipophilic CdSe quantum dot (QD) coated with trioctylphosphine oxide (TOPOQD) can be extracted from chloroform into water upon interaction with macrocyclic glycocluster amphiphile 1. TheExpand

Transcription monitoring using fused RNA with a dye-binding light-up aptamer as a tag: a blue fluorescent RNA.
The "light-up" RNA aptamer-Hoechst pair can be used as a fluorescent tag to monitor transcription processes.

Photoresponsive nanogels formed by the self-assembly of spiropyrane-bearing pullulan that act as artificial molecular chaperones.
Novel photoresponsive nanogels were prepared by the self-assembly of spiropyrane-bearing pullulan (SpP). The solution properties of the nanogels could be controlled by photostimulation viaExpand

Light‐Up Hoechst–DNA Aptamer Pair: Generation of an Aptamer‐Selective Fluorophore from a Conventional DNA‐Staining Dye
We have designed a strategy to generate a light‐up fluorophore–aptamer pair based on a down‐modification of a conventional DNA‐staining dye to suppress its affinity to the original dsDNA targets,Expand

Artificial viruses and their application to gene delivery. Size-controlled gene coating with glycocluster nanoparticles.
Number- and size-controlled macromolecular associations are common in biology with viruses as a typical example. We report here a novel example of artificial viruses, in which the double-helical DNAExpand

Remarkably size-regulated cell invasion by artificial viruses. Saccharide-dependent self-aggregation of glycoviruses and its consequences in glycoviral gene delivery.
We here report a novel example of artificial glycoviral vectors constructed via number- and size-controlled gene (pCMVluc, 7040 bp) coating with micellar glycocluster nanoparticles (GNPs) ofExpand

In vitro selection of RNA aptamer against Escherichia coli release factor 1.
A pool of 84-nt RNAs containing a randomized sequence of 50 nt was selected against gel-immobilized Escherichia coli release factor 1 (RF-1) responsible for translation termination at amber (UAG)Expand
