We propose a rational design of mesoporous-silica nanoparticles with outstanding performance for the immobilization of lipase. It is demonstrated that a high content of hydrophobic-surface modification and an optimized pore size of mesoporous-silica nanoparticles are essential for improving the catalytic activity and cyclability of immobilized lipase.

LncRNA INZEB2 is upregulated during treatment of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) with magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (IONPs) and is necessary for maintaining the promotion of osteogenic differentiation by IONPs via activation of the BMP/Smad pathway.

The variation of carrier gas flow rate could overcome the low density, the inhomogeneous thickness and morphology of MoS2. By adjusting the carrier gas flow rate, sharp triangular MoS2 monolayers could be prepared in a controlled way.

In this study, we prepared activatable hyaluronidase (HAase) and cascaded targeting nanoparticles (HACT NPs) for the pinpoint delivery of anticancer drugs and siRNAs to overcome the drug resistance of connective tissue growth factor (CTGF)-overexpressing breast cancer in vivo.

A new in situ surface polymerization method free of extra surfactants and oxidizing agents was developed for the controlled synthesis of iron oxide@conjugated polymer nanoparticles (NPs) with an adjustable size, shape, and shell thickness. The obtained iron oxide@poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(4-styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS) NPs had balanced, prominent magneto-optical properties and exhibited an excellent hyperthermal therapeutic effect under multimodal imaging-guiding in vivo.

Room-temperature large edge ferromagnetism arises from Oterminated zigzag pore edges of few-layer black P nanomeshes (BPNMs), which consist of a honeycomb-like array of hexagonal nanopores formed by a non-lithographic method. The observed magnetization values (per unit area) are ~100 times larger than those reported for H-terminated graphene NMs, while the magnetism disappears for H-terminated BPNMs. Ferromagnetic spin coupling of the edge P=O bond and interlayer spin interaction cause large magnetism.
