Apoferritin encapsulation of cysteine protease inhibitors for cathepsin L inhibition in cancer cells (2019)
Journal Article
Quilles Junior, J. C., Bradshaw, T. D., Turyanska, L., Carlos, F. D. R. R., Montanari, A., Leitão, A., …Bradshaw, T. D. (2019). Apoferritin encapsulation of cysteine protease inhibitors for cathepsin L inhibition in cancer cells. RSC Advances, 9(63), 36699-36706. https://doi.org/10.1039/c9ra07161j

Cysteine proteases play a key role in tumorigenesis causing protein degradation and promoting invasive tumour growth. Cathepsin L is overexpressed in cancer cells and could provide a specific target for delivery of anticancer agents. We encapsulated...

Immobilized Enzymes on Gold Nanoparticles: From Enhanced Stability to Cleaning of Heritage Textiles (2019)
Journal Article
Gherardi, F., Turyanska, L., Ferrari, E., Weston, N., Fay, M. W., & Colston, B. J. (2019). Immobilized Enzymes on Gold Nanoparticles: From Enhanced Stability to Cleaning of Heritage Textiles. ACS Applied Bio Materials, 2(11), 5136-5143. https://doi.org/10.1021/acsabm.9b00802

Enzyme-based treatments are used in heritage conservation for the effective removal of glues and other damaging organic layers from the surfaces of historic and artistic works. Despite their potential, however, the application of enzymatic treatments... Read More about Immobilized Enzymes on Gold Nanoparticles: From Enhanced Stability to Cleaning of Heritage Textiles.

Synthesis of folic acid functionalized gold nanoclusters for targeting folate receptor-positive cells (2019)
Journal Article
Liu, Z., Turyanska, L., Zamberlan, F., Pacifico, S., Bradshaw, T. D., Moro, F., …Thomas, N. R. (2019). Synthesis of folic acid functionalized gold nanoclusters for targeting folate receptor-positive cells. Nanotechnology, 30(50), https://doi.org/10.1088/1361-6528/ab437c

We report on the synthesis of water-soluble gold nanoclusters capped with polyethylene glycol (PEG)-based ligands and further functionalized with folic acid for specific cellular uptake. The dihydrolipoic acid-PEG-based ligands terminated with -OMe,... Read More about Synthesis of folic acid functionalized gold nanoclusters for targeting folate receptor-positive cells.

Hybrid light emitting diodes based on stable, high brightness all-inorganic CsPbI 3 perovskite nanocrystals and InGaN (2019)
Journal Article
