Therapeutic Nanoreactors Deliver Cell-Killing Chemical Reactions

Abstract:
Patrick Van Gelder, Ph.D., and his colleagues at the Vrije University Brussel, in Belgium, created the spherical nanoreactors using a three-part polymer and pore-forming proteins found in bacteria. These pore-forming proteins create channels that allow prodrug molecules to pass through the wall of the nanoreactors and reach the interior, where the enzymes reside.
