Synthetic polymer nanoparticles conjugated with FimH(A) from E. coli pili to emulate the bacterial mode of epithelial internalization. Academic Article uri icon


  • Amphiphilic block copolymer nanoparticles are conjugated with uropathogenic Escherichia coli type 1 pilus adhesin FimH(A) through amidation chemistry to enable bladder epithelial cell binding and internalization of the nanoparticles in vitro.
