Ganging up against the bad guys: Nanofibers of 1 efficiently inhibited the growth of glioblastoma cells but exhibited little acute toxicity toward a neuronal cell line. The selective cytotoxicity probably stems from the Warburg effect of cancer cells and the existence of microtubule-stabilizing proteins in neurons. Supramolecular nanofibers that can interrupt the self-organization of proteins may have potential as nanomedicines for the treatment of cancer.
