23_18/2013Nanocarriers: A Near-Infrared Light-Triggered Nanocarrier with Reversible DNA Valves for Intracellular Controlled Release (Adv. Funct. Mater. 18/2013)

On page 2255, Bo Tang and co-workers report a method to construct near-infrared light-triggered nanocarriers with reversible valves. The release amounts of the cargo molecules can be controlled precisely by adjusting the irradiation time and the laser on-off cycles. The therapeutic effect toward cancer cells can also be regulated when doxorubicin is loaded into the nanocarrier.
