Cyanobacteria were used as a living carrier of photosensitizer conjugated upconversion nanoparticles (UCNP, a light harvesting antenna) to construct a self-supplying oxygen photodynamic therapy (PDT) system. Ce6: chlorin e6; DSPE: 1,2-distearoyl-sn-glycero- 3-phosphatidylethanolamine; NHS: N-hydroxylsuccinimide; PEG: polyethyene glycot.

Ultra-small graphene quantum dots (GQDs) were prepared from graphene oxide, using a reproducible, top-down procedure leading to a nearly 100% conversion of the starting material. GQDs confirmed their biocompatibility. They undergo renal clearance and they are internalized into podocytes by caveolae-mediated mechanism.
