Programmed hydrolysis of nanoassemblies by electrostatic interaction-mediated enzymatic-degradation Academic Article uri icon


  • Electrostatic interaction-mediated enzymatic-hydrolysis of poly(lactide)-containing nanoscale assemblies is described. At physiological pH, degradable core-shell morphologies with charged shells can readily attract or repel enzymes carrying opposite or similar charges, respectively.
