CiQUS researchers publishes at Angewandte Chemie a infrequent case of self-assembly, as it involves four different components: a metal, a peptide, a small molecule and a nucleic acid. This is a new approach for achieving a highly selective, recognition of designed nine DNA base pairs.
The results of this collaboration between CiQUS and Research Center for Animal Health (CISA) have been published in the journal "Antiviral Research", and demonstrate the effectiveness of this system to protect animals against bluetongue virus infection.
The structures obtained are easily modified at the molecular level, which would allow its use in more complex applications, such as technologies for the transport and release of drugs in the body. This study, performed by Dr. Michele Panciera and led by CiQUS researchers Dr. Manuel Amorín y Prof. Juan R. Granja, was recently published in the journal Chemistry European Journal.
