Reversible Stabilization of Vesicles: Redox-Responsive Polymer Nanocontainers for Intracellular Delivery

Reversible Stabilization of Vesicles: Redox-Responsive Polymer Nanocontainers for Intracellular Delivery
Volker Gerke, Jürgen Klingauf, Armido Studer, Andrea Ricker, Matthias Tesch, Wilke C. de Vries, David Grill, Bart Jan Ravoo, Harald Nüsse
Redox-responsive nanocontainers are prepared by the supramolecular assembly of a responsive polymer shell around a cyclodextrin vesicle core. In their Communication http://doi.org/10.1002/anie.201702620, A. Studer, V. Gerke, B. J. Ravoo, and co-workers demonstrate that vesicles stabilized with a disulfide crosslinked polymer shell can encapsulate functional payloads and release them on encountering a reductive trigger. Cell experiments visualize the release of the toxin phalloidin inside the reducing intracellular micro-environment and its binding to actin filaments.
