Nicolas Cottenye, Karine Anselme, Lydie Ploux and Corinne Vebert-Nardin Vesicular Structures Self-Assembled from Oligonucleotide-Polymer Hybrids: Mechanical Prevention of Bacterial Colonization Upon their Surface Tethering Through Hybridization Advanced Functional Materials 22
Oligonucleotide-polymer hybrids form vesicular structures that can be immobilized onto surfaces through hybridization. This type of soft coating is able to prevent bacterial adhesion and colonization without an antimicrobial agent. This interesting property is due to the mechanical properties of the coating and is attributed to the dissipative properties of the vesicle-based coating.
