Time and cell-dependent effects of endocytosis inhibitors on the internalization of biomolecule markers and nanomaterials (2018)
Journal Article
Sasso, L., Purdie, L., Grabowska, A. M., Jones, A. T., & Alexander, C. (2018). Time and cell-dependent effects of endocytosis inhibitors on the internalization of biomolecule markers and nanomaterials. Journal of Interdisciplinary Nanomedicine, 3(2), https://doi.org/10.1002/jin2.39

Endocytosis is an essential function of cells, with key roles in the internalisation of nutrients, signal molecules and also drugs. Endocytic processes are therefore widely investigated in the context of drug delivery, and inhibitors of endocytic pat...

Cancer reversion with oocyte extracts is mediated by cell cycle arrest and induction of tumour dormancy (2018)
Journal Article
Saad, N., Alberio, R., Johnson, A. D., Emes, R. D., Giles, T. C., Clarke, P., …Allegrucci, C. (2018). Cancer reversion with oocyte extracts is mediated by cell cycle arrest and induction of tumour dormancy. Oncotarget, 9(22), doi:10.18632/oncotarget.24664

Inducing stable control of tumour growth by tumour reversion is an alternative approach to cancer treatment when eradication of the disease cannot be achieved. The process requires re-establishment of normal control mechanisms that are lost in canc...

Water-soluble substituted chitosan derivatives as technology platform for inhalation delivery of siRNA (2018)
Journal Article
Capel, V., Vllasaliu, D., Watts, P., Clarke, P. A., Luxton, D., Grabowska, A. M., …Stolnik, S. (in press). Water-soluble substituted chitosan derivatives as technology platform for inhalation delivery of siRNA. Drug Delivery, 25(1), doi:10.1080/10717544.2018.1440668

Despite research efforts full potential of siRNA-based therapeutics has not yet been fully realized due to a need for suitable, effective delivery formulations. Here, we examine a potential of a new class of water-soluble chitosans as siRNA platform...

A HIF-independent, CD133-mediated mechanism of cisplatin resistance in glioblastoma cells (2018)
Journal Article
Ahmed, E. M., Bandopadhyay, G., Coyle, B., & Grabowska, A. M. (2018). A HIF-independent, CD133-mediated mechanism of cisplatin resistance in glioblastoma cells. Cellular Oncology, 41(3), https://doi.org/10.1007/s13402-018-0374-8

Purpose Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) is the commonest brain tumour in adults. A population of cells, known as cancer stem cells (CSCs), is thought to mediate chemo/radiotherapy resistance. CD133 is a cell surface marker to identify and isolate... Read More about A HIF-independent, CD133-mediated mechanism of cisplatin resistance in glioblastoma cells.

Pathways of cellular internalisation of liposomes delivered siRNA and effects on siRNA engagement with target mRNA and silencing in cancer cells (2018)
Journal Article
Alshehri, A. A., Grabowska, A. M., & Stolnik, S. (in press). Pathways of cellular internalisation of liposomes delivered siRNA and effects on siRNA engagement with target mRNA and silencing in cancer cells. Scientific Reports, 8(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-018-22166-3

Design of an efficient delivery system is a generally recognised bottleneck in translation of siRNA technology into clinic. Despite research efforts, cellular processes that determine efficiency of siRNA silencing achieved by different delivery formu...

Stable DHLA–PEG capped PbS quantum dots: from synthesis to near-infrared biomedical imaging (2018)
Journal Article
Zamberlan, F., Turyanska, L., Patanè, A., Liu, Z., Williams, H., Fay, M., …Grabowska, A. (in press). Stable DHLA–PEG capped PbS quantum dots: from synthesis to near-infrared biomedical imaging. Journal of Materials Chemistry B, 6, https://doi.org/10.1039/c7tb02912h

The short shelf-life of water-soluble quantum dots (QDs) due to colloidal instability represents a major drawback to their exploitation. This work examines the colloidal stability of PbS nanoparticles capped with dihydrolipoic acid–polyethylene glyco...
