Gold Nanoparticles Functionalized with Dendritic Polyglycerol Sulfates

25.01.2013
<strong>Background</strong><br>

As selectins mediate the first contacts of leukocytes to the endothelium, the initial events of all kind of inflammatory responses, selectins are ideal targets for the therapeutic intervention of inflammatory diseases. <br><br> Dendritic polyglycerol sulfates (dPGS) alone and with aminoalcohols functionalized gold nanoparticles each have been shown to be good selectin inhibitors, as they prevent L- and P-selectins to bind their natural ligands with IC50 values in the nanomolar and picomolar range. <br><br>

<strong>Technology</strong><br> We offer synthesized gold nanoparticles functionalized with highly branched polyglycerol sulfates, showing a high affinity for L- and P-selectins with IC50 values in the femtomolar range and therefore having a better anti-inflammatory potential compared to dPGS and aminoalcohol-functionalized nanoparticles alone. <br><br> Besides their use in the therapy of inflammatory diseases, dPGS-functionalized nanoparticles can also be used for diagnostic purposes. By using dPGS functionalized nanoparticles, selectin expressing inflammatory tissues can be localized and visualized. <br><br> <strong>Benefits</strong> <ul> <li>Improved selectin inhibition with IC50 = 180 fM </li> <li>Branched polyglycerols show high biocompatibility</li> <li>Visualization of gold nanoparticles by MRT possible </li> </ul> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> DE patent application filed 05/2011<br> PCT application filed 05/2012 <br><br> <strong>Patent Owner</strong><br> Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin<br> Freie Universität Berlin</p>

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
