Bioinspired copper single-atom nanozyme as a superoxide dismutase-like antioxidant for sepsis treatment

A SOD-inspired copper single-atom nanozyme (Cu-SAzyme) was designed and synthesized by a two-step scaffold-adsorption method. The Cu-SAzyme exhibits high catalytic activity to scavenge superoxide anion, the initiator of ROS, and thus effectively prevents the disease progression in septic animals. Abstract: Sepsis is a systemic inflammatory response syndrome with high morbidity and mortality mediated by infection-caused …

Nucleus-specific RNAi nanoplatform for targeted regulation of nuclear lncRNA function and effective cancer therapy

We herein developed a nucleus-specific RNAi nanoplatform for targeted regulation of nuclear lncRNA function and effective cancer therapy. This new RNAi nanoplatform could respond to the endosomal pH to expose NTPA/siRNA complexes for the nucleus-specific siRNA delivery, leading to a significant inhibition of nuclear lncNEAT2 expression and tumor growth of liver cancer. Abstract: In the …
