The endosomal escape is a well-known serious obstacle for non-viral gene delivery. This is because of an acidic and enzymatic degradation of the contents of the endosome/lysosome. Therefore, the internalized gene needs to be efficient released into the cytosol to obtain the efficiently transfection efficiency. On the other hand, the diphtheria toxin T(More)
We present a simple, rapid, and robust method for preparing asymmetric cell-sized lipid bilayer vesicles using water-in-oil (W/O) microdroplets transferred through an oil-water interface. The efficiency for producing cell-sized model membranes is elucidated in relation to the vesicular size and the weight of contained water-soluble molecules. We demonstrate(More)
Two new one-dimensional (1D) rhodium(I)-semiquinonato complexes formulated as [Rh(3,6-DBSQ-4,5-PDO)(CO)2]∞ (4; 3,6-DBSQ-4,5-PDO(•-) = 3,6-di-tert-butyl-4,5-(1,3-propanedioxy)-1,2-benzosemiquinonato) and [Rh(3,6-DBSQ-4,5-(N,N'-DEN))(CO)2]∞ (5; 3,6-DBSQ-4,5-(N,N'-DEN)(•-) = 3,6-di-tert-butyl-4,5-(N,N'-diethylenediamine)-1,2-benzosemiquinonato) were(More)
A newly synthesized one-dimensional (1D) hydrogen-bonded (H-bonded) rhodium(II)-η(5)-semiquinone complex, [Cp*Rh(η(5)-p-HSQ-Me4)]PF6 ([1]PF6; Cp* = 1,2,3,4,5-pentamethylcyclopentadienyl; HSQ = semiquinone) exhibits a paraelectric-antiferroelectric second-order phase transition at 237.1 K. Neutron and X-ray crystal structure analyses reveal that the H-bonded(More)
We present a comprehensive study of the synthesis, heat capacity, crystal structures, UV-vis-NIR and mid-IR spectra, DFT calculations, and magnetic and electrical properties of a one-dimensional (1D) rhodium(I)-semiquinonato complex, [Rh(3,6-DBSQ-4,5-(MeO)2)(CO)2]∞ (3), where 3,6-DBSQ-4,5-(MeO)2(•-) represents(More)
