    Am J Respir Cell Mol Biol. 2020 Jul 14 [Online ahead of print]Adini A, Wu H, … Matthews BD
  • Emphysema is a progressive and fatal lung disease with no cure that is characterized by thinning, enlargement and destruction of alveoli leading to impaired gas exchange. Disease progression is due in part to dysregulation of Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) signaling in the lungs and increased lung cell apoptosis. Here we asked whether PR1P, a novel short peptide we designed that increa…
  • Tumor Necrosis Factor-α Trimer Disassembly and Inactivation via Peptide-Small Molecule Synergy. [Journal Article]
    ACS Chem Biol. 2020 Jul 14 [Online ahead of print]Checco JW, Eddinger GA, … Gellman SH
  • Aberrant signaling by tumor necrosis factor-α (TNFα) is associated with inflammatory diseases that can be treated with engineered proteins that inhibit binding of this cytokine to cell-surface receptors. Despite these clinical successes, there is considerable interest in the development of smaller antagonists of TNFα-receptor interactions. We describe a new 29-residue α/β-peptide, a molecule that…

    Nanoscale. 2020 Jul 14 [Online ahead of print]van den Boom J, Hensel A, … Knauer SK
  • When nanoparticles enter a physiological environment, they rapidly adsorb biomolecules, in particular cellular proteins. This biological coating, the so-called nanoparticle protein corona, undoubtedly affects the biological identity and potential cytotoxicity of the nanomaterial. To elucidate a possible impact on the adsorbed biomolecules, we focused on an important group of players in cellular h…
  • Control of allosteric electrochemical protein switch using magnetic signals. [Journal Article]
    Chem Commun (Camb). 2020 Jul 14 [Online ahead of print]Bollella P, Edwardraja S, … Katz E
  • We report a novel approach for magneto-controlled activation of an artificial electro-enzymatic cascade. The input signal triggers release of a caged ligand peptide, its proteolytic processing and activation of an artificial allosteric enzyme based on PQQ-dependent glucose dehydrogenase. The developed cascade was used to assemble a magneto-controlled biofuel cell.
  • On the cutting edge: protease-based methods for sensing and controlling cell biology. [Review]
    Nat Methods. 2020 Jul 13 [Online ahead of print]Chung HK, Lin MZ
  • Sequence-specific proteases have proven to be versatile building blocks for tools that report or control cellular function. Reporting methods link protease activity to biochemical signals, whereas control methods rely on engineering proteases to respond to exogenous inputs such as light or chemicals. In turn, proteases have inherent control abilities, as their native functions are to release, act…
  • Proapoptotic Peptide Brush Polymer Nanoparticles via Photoinitiated Polymerization-Induced Self-Assembly. [Journal Article]
    Angew Chem Int Ed Engl. 2020 Jul 13 [Online ahead of print]Gianneschi NC, Sun H, … Stupp S
  • Herein we report photoinitiated polymerization-induced self-assembly (photo-PISA) of spherical micelles consisting of proapoptotic peptide-polymer amphiphiles. The one-pot synthetic approach yielded micellar nanoparticles at high concentrations and at scale (150 mg/mL) with tunable peptide loadings up to 48 wt. %. The size of the micellar nanoparticles was tuned by varying the lengths of hydropho…
  • Cyclotide structures revealed by NMR, with a little help from X-ray crystallography. [Journal Article]
    Chembiochem. 2020 Jul 12 [Online ahead of print]Handley TNG, Harvey PJ, … Craik D
  • This article highlights the predominant role that NMR has had in determining the structures of cyclotides, a fascinating class of macrocyclic peptides found in plants. Cyclotides contain a cystine knot, a compact structural motif that is constrained by three disulfide bonds and able to resist chemical and biological degradation. Their resistance to proteolytic degradation has made cyclotides appe…
  • Recovery of human mesenchymal stem cells grown on novel microcarrier coated with thermoresponsive polymer. [Journal Article]
    J Artif Organs. 2020 Jul 12 [Online ahead of print]Narumi Y, Iwai R, Takagi M
  • The cultivation of cells on microcarriers (MCs) in stirred suspension system is useful method for the large-scale culture of human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) for allogenic transplantation. To harvest hMSCs from MCs without using proteolytic enzyme treatment but by lowering temperature, polystyrene MCs coated with a copolymer called CAT having zwitterionic and thermoresponsive characteristics,…
  • Heptameric Peptide Interferes with Amyloid-β Aggregation by Structural Reorganization of the Toxic Oligomers. [Journal Article]
