Bidirectional Modulation of Neuronal Cells Electrical and Mechanical Properties Through Pristine and Functionalized Graphene Substrates
[Abstract] In recent years, the quest for surface modifications to promote neuronal cell interfacing and modulation has risen. This course is justified by the requirements of emerging technological and medical approaches ...
Intrinsic and Selective Activity of Functionalized Carbon Nanotube/Nanocellulose Platforms Against Colon Cancer Cells
[Abstract] Given their large surface area and versatile chemical reactivity, single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are regarded as the basis of new pharmacological complexes. In this study, SWCNTs are chemically ...
Vermellogens and the Development of CB-Based Supramolecular Switches Using pH-Responsive and Non-Toxic Viologen Analogues
[Abstract] We present herein the “vermellogens”, a new class of pH-responsive viologen analogues, which replace the direct linking between para-substituted pyridinium moieties within those by a hydrazone functional group. ...
In Situ Synthesis of Artificial Lipids
[Abstract] Lipids constitute one of the most enigmatic family of biological molecules. Although the importance of lipids as basic units of compartmental structure and energy storage is well-acknowledged, deciphering the ...
Development of new non-viral systems for genetic modification of senescent cells
(Cell Press, 2023-03-20)
[Abstract] Senescence is a process characterized by a prolonged irreversible cell-cycle arrest. The accumulation of senescent cells in tissues is related to aging and to the development of age-related diseases. Recently, ...
Polymer-Induced Biofilms for Enhanced Biocatalysis
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2022-07-21)
[Abstract] The intrinsic resilience of biofilms to environmental conditions makes them an attractive platform for biocatalysis, bioremediation, agriculture or consumer health. However, one of the main challenges in these ...
