    Assemblies of cationic gold nanorods (AuNRs) via electrostatic interactions with double-stranded (ds) DNA were investigated in solution and after evaporation as a cast-film. Interestingly, moderately positively charged AuNRs assembled with dsDNA provided a monolayer sheet with an ordered alignment resembling a two-dimensional (2D) smectic structure during solvent evaporation.

    Water-stable gold nanoparticle vesicles (GNVs) with hollow interiors have attracted attention due to their great potential for biological applications; however, their preparation through the self-assembly approaches has been restricted due to the limited understanding of their critical mechanistic issues. In this paper, we demonstrate that a fluorinated tetra (ethylene glycol) (FTEG)-terminated tetra (ethylene glycol) (EG4), namely, FTEG-EG4, ligand can self-assemble with gold nanoparticles (5 and 10 nm) into GNVs with a hollow structure in THE due to the solvophobic feature of the ligand. Time-dependent studies showed that the GNVs with a closely packed surface derived from the incomplete and irregular GNVs, but not through the fusion of the GNV precursors. After dialysis in water, the assemblies retained vesicular structures in water, even though GNVs aggregated together, which was initiated by the hydrophobic interactions between the FTEG heads of the surface ligands on GNVs. This study provides a new insight into the design of novel small surface ligands to produce water-stable GNVs for biological applications.

    The revolutionary idea that DNA can play a non-biological role in a material world has indeed become today's reality. Although much attentions have recently been paid to "structural DNA nanotechnology" centered on DNA origami, due to the need for DNA computation, hybridization and modification that are usually not easily accessed, reproduced, or manipulated, preparation of nanostructures using DNA origami may have yet set a threshold for researcher to advance their fields with functional nanomaterials. It is suggested that, consisting of a few nucleotides (base pairs), or readily obtained by a simple procedure, non-origami DNA itself has sufficiently rich chemical functionality, and afford sequence-programmed growth of hybrid nano-architectures made of DNA and interactive materials with base-resolution control, and that the potential of non-origami DNA in building functional nanostructures has been underestimated. We have investigated an impressive number of fundamental and application-orientated studies in the late few years, and been preparing the review of the state of research in various subdisciplines of functional nanostructures based on non-origami DNA, which involve fundamental interactions of DNA-inorganic species, DNA nanofabrication, electronic nanodevices, functional metal nanoparticles and chiral nanostructures as well. Applications for these nanostructures have been covered in fields ranging from plasmonic biosensing and electrical nanodevices to optical bioimaging and photocatalysis. In this review, we will start with the fundamentals in DNA-based nanofabrication, including structure, characteristics and handling of DNA. Then, the capability of morphological control by simple DNA molecules, the resultant nanostructures and novel properties will be discussed and compared. Particularly, we emphasized the potential of single DNA molecules in templating the growth of nanostructures with different compositions, such as electrical polymer/metal nanowires, plasmonic nanostructures, fluorescent quantum dots and chiral silica nanostructures. Furthermore, the advanced applications of the non-origami DNA-based functional nanostructures in a range of fields will be figured out, including nanoelectronics, therapeutics and photocatalysis. Finally, conclusions will be drawn, and perspectives will be given. This review should be important for the development of DNA nanotechnology and DNA-based nanomaterials in the next decade, and creation of new nanomaterials based on simple DNA molecules, and their expanded applications as well.

    Biomolecular systems actively control their local environment on a sub-nm scale via changes in molecular configuration from their flexible structures and derive emergent functions. Although this functional emergence based on local environmental control is attracting a great deal of attention in chemistry, it remains challenging to realize this artificially. Herein, we report the tuning of the thermo-responsive properties of oligo(ethylene glycol) (OEG) derivatives attached on gold nanoparticles via local environmental control not only by the hydrophobic moiety at their terminus but also by their molecular configuration. OEG-attached alkane thiol-modified AuNPs showed thermo-responsive assembly/disassembly in water through the hydration/dehydration of the OEG portions in a manner dependent both on the hydrophobicity at their terminus and the surface curvature of the core nanoparticles. Further, the assembly temperature (T-A) was also tuned by ligand mixing with a non-thermo-responsive ligand with a shorter OEG length. Molecular dynamics simulations show that the distribution of the hydrophobic terminus in the normal direction along the gold surface varied in accordance with the surface curvature, indicating variations in molecular configuration. It is expected that a bent configuration could accelerate the thermo-responsiveness of OEG by allowing them greater accessibility to the hydrophobic terminus. Experimental and simulation results support the notion that local OEG density tuning by surface curvature or ligand mixing with a different OEG length leads to different degrees of accessibility to the hydrophobic terminus via changes in molecular configuration, promoting local environmental control-directed assembly temperature tuning.

    This review introduces recent advances in the fabrication of metal nanostructures via self-assembly with a particular focus on our studies. As nanostructures, in particular metal nanostructures, show unique properties which are not observed in bulk materials, the development of nanofabrication techniques has attracted much attention in the research fields of nanoscience and nanotechnologies. From the viewpoint of biomimetics, it is imagined that sophisticated structures with spatiotemporal controllability on a nanoscale are crucial. Thus, much effort has been paid to the fabrication of 3- and 4-dimensional metal nanostructures. Although there are various approaches, the most promising is the self-assembly of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and their combination with soft matters. To obtain further controlled nanostructures for better properties, their systems have become more and more complex. For future expan- sion of these technologies, simplified systems are preferable for refining them based on clear mechanisms. From this point of view, we have worked on the self-assembly of AuNPs modified with oligo(ethylene glycol) (OEG)-derivatives as a small, simple molecule with a definite chemical structure and fabricated 3D hollow capsule structures and reversibly changeable structures responding to certain stimuli in solution and on/in soft matters. These results are expected to support the creation of novel nanodevices.

    Inorganic nanoparticles are an attractive material that shows unique properties that differ from their bulk counterparts. Assembly of nanoparticles with soft materials is an effective approach to leverage their unusual properties for the fabrication of functional devices. Among the various soft materials, polymer brushes are expected to offer exciting opportunities due to their unique conformational properties. Here, we review research progress in the assembly and active control of gold nanoparticles with polymer brushes as a scaffold.

    Nanoparticles exhibit a number of unique properties such as localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR). As this LSPR is sensitive to geometrical or spatial conditions, the arrangement of nanoparticles, in particular the active arrangement of plasmonic structures, is an important issue. In this study, gold nanorod (GNR) arrays were prepared by GNR attachment on anionic polymer (DNA) brushes via electrostatic interactions and their stimuli-responsive changes in orientationwere investigated. As a result, the orientation of GNR arrays on DNA brushes reversibly changed by the modulation of electrostatic interactions between GNRs and polymers via changes in the solution pH. As these extensive GNR arrays are prepared via easy bottom-up processes, GNR surface properties are easily tuned by simple modification, and DNAs could be replaced with various synthetic polymers, we believe that this study will lead to the development of nextgeneration materials and devices with actively tunable structures.

    We developed micro-liquid enclosure arrays (MLEAs) for holding solution samples in coherent diffractive imaging (CDI) using x-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs). Hundreds of fully isolated micro-liquid enclosures are arranged in a single MLEA chip for efficient measurement, where each enclosure is destroyed after exposure to a single XFEL pulse. A semi-automated MLEA assembling system was also developed to enclose solution samples into MLEAs efficiently at high precision. We performed XFEL-based CDI experiments using MLEAs and imaged in-solution structures of self-assembled gold nanoparticles. The sample hit rate can be optimized by adjusting solution concentration, and we achieved a single-particle hit rate of 31%, which is not far from the theoretical upper limit of 37% derived from the Poisson statistics. MELAs allow us to perform CDI measurement under controlled solution conditions and will help reveal the nanostructures and dynamics of particles in solution.

    In this study, we demonstrate that the plasmonic properties of gold nanorods (GNRs) electrostatically adsorbed on a DNA brush substrate are reversibly controlled by changes in NaCl concentration. This plasmonic change results from GNR assembly/disassembly in a DNA brush layer. In addition, we show that this active plasmonic system exhibits intense and switchable chiroptical properties.

    Tropomyosin (Tpm) is a two-stranded parallel alpha-helical coiled-coil protein, and studying its structure is crucial for understanding the nature of coiled coils. Previously, we found that the N-terminal half of the human skeletal muscle alpha-Tpm (alpha-Tpm 140) was less structurally stable in the presence of phosphate ions than the coiled-coil protein carrier (CCPC) 140 variant with 18 mutated residues, in which all amino acid residues located at the interface between the two alpha-helices were completely conserved. A classical hypothesis explains that interhelical interactions stabilize the coiled-coil structure. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that the structural stability of Tpm and its variant is governed by the binding of multivalent ions that form a bridge between charged side chains located at positions b, c, and f of the heptad repeat on a single alpha-helical chain. We found that the structural stability of alpha-Tpm 140 and CCPC 140 markedly increased upon addition of divalent cations and divalent anions, respectively. We also clarified that the structural stability of the alpha-Tpm 140/CCPC 140 heteromeric coiled-coil molecule was governed by the stability of a less stable alpha-helical chain. These results demonstrated that the entire structural stability of Tpm is determined by the stability of a single alpha-helix. Our findings provide new insights into the study of the structure of coiled-coil proteins.

    The development of a strategy for the assembly of nanoscale building blocks, in particular, anisotropic nanoparticles, into desired structures is important for the construction of functional materials and devices. However, control over the orientation of rodshaped nanoparticles on a substrate for integration into solid-state devices remains challenging. Here, we report a strategy for the fabrication of finely aligned gold nanorod (GNR) arrays using polymer (DNA) brushes as a nanoscale template. The gold nanorods modified with cationic surface ligands were electrostatically adsorbed onto the DNA brush substrates under various conditions. The orientational behavior of the GNRs was examined by spectral analyses and transmission electron microtomography (TEMT). As a result, we found several important factors, such as moderate interaction between GNRs and polymers and polymer densities on the substrate, related to the vertical alignment of GNRs on the substrates. We also developed a purification method to remove the undesired adsorption of GNRs onto the arrays. Finally, we have succeeded in the fabrication of extensive vertical GNR arrays of high quality via the easy bottom-up process.

    Active plasmonic tuning is an attractive but challenging research subject, leading to various promising applications. As one of the approaches, nanostructures are placed in or on soft matter, such as elastomers and gels, and their gap distances are tuned by the mechanical extension or volume change of the supporting matrices. As hydrogels possess various types of stimuli- responsiveness with large volume change and biocompatibility, they are good candidates as supporting materials for active nanostructure tuning. However, it remains unclear how accurately we can control their nanogap distance changes using polymer gels with a low deviation due to major difficulties in the precise observation of nanostructures on the gels. Here, we prepared gold arrays with sub- 100 nm dots on silicon substrates by electron beam lithography and transferred them onto the hydrogel surface. Then, their nanopattern was actively tuned by the changes in gel size in water and their structural changes were confirmed by optical microscopy, microspectroscopy, and atomic force microscopy ( AFM). Further, we successfully prepared ionic liquid ( IL) gels with various degrees of swelling via solvent exchange. Scanning electron microscopy ( SEM) observation of the IL gels provided clear pictures at nanoscale resolution. Finally, we calculated the plasmonic spectra using a finite difference time domain ( FDTD) simulation based on the SEM images and compared them with the measured spectra. The results in this study totally support the notion that active changes in plasmonic nanodot patterns via volume changes in the hydrogel are quite homogenous on a several nanometer scale, making them ideal for precise active surface plasmon tuning.

    The self-assembly of gold nanoparticles (GNPs) into a defined structure, particularly hollow capsule structures, provides great potential for applications in materials science and medicine. However, the complexity of the parameters for the preparation of those structures through self-assembly has limited access to critical mechanistic questions. With this in mind, we have studied GNP vesicle (GNV) formation through self-assembly by the surface modification of GNPs with low-molecular-weight ligands. Here, we successfully prepared GNVs composed of GNPs with a diameter of 30 nm by surface modification with carboxylic acid-terminated fluorinated oligo(ethylene glycol) ligands (CFLs). As the carboxylic acid has two states (protonated and deprotonated), the balance of the attraction and repulsion between GNPs covered with CFLs is tunable. Sodium carboxylate-terminated fluorinated oligo(ethylene glycol) ligands (SCFLs) provided smaller GNVs than did CFLs at 0.8 X 10(11) NPs/mL. Time-course study revealed that CFL-covered GNPs quickly form small aggregates and gradually grow to larger GNVs (ca. 200 nm), but no gradual growth was observed for SCFL-covered GNPs. This result indicated that the electrostatic repulsion inhibits fusion of the small GNVs. The size of the GNVs formed with the aid of CFLs was independent of the initial GNP concentration, but the extinction spectra were concentration-dependent. Electron microscopy imaging and simulations supported the defect formation in the assemblies. These results provided new insights into the vesicle formation mechanism.

    Gold nanorods (GNRs) coated with a single kind of ligand show thermoreponsive two-step assembly to provide a hierarchical structure. The GNRs (33 nm in length × 14 nm in diameter) coated with a hexa(ethylene glycol) (HEG) derivative form side-by-side assemblies at 30 °C (TA1) as a steady state through dehydration. By further heating to over 40 °C (TA2), larger assemblies, which are composed of the side-by-side assembled units, are formed as hierarchical structures. The dehydration temperature of the HEG derivative varies depending on the free volume of the HEG unit, which corresponds to the curvature of the GNRs. Upon heating, dehydration first occurs from the ligands on the side portions with a lower curvature, and then from the ligands on the edge portions with a higher curvature. The different sized GNRs (33 × 8 and 54 × 15 nm) also show two-step assembly. Both the TA1 and TA2 are dependent on the diameter of the GNRs, but independent of their length. This result supports that the dehydration is dependent on the free volume, which corresponds to the curvature. Anisotropic assembly focusing on differences in curvature provides new guidelines for the fabrication of hierarchical structures.

    Intranasal inactivated influenza vaccines can elicit mucosal immune responses that protect against virus infection. For the development of intranasal inactivated influenza vaccines, effective adjuvants inducing minimal adverse reactions are required. Generally, however, lower toxicity adjuvants have lower adjuvanticity. In this research, we fabricated nanoparticle-based adjuvants to enhance its adjuvanticity. Herein, we focused on low-molecular-weight polyinosinic-polycytidylic acid, referred to as uPIC(40:400), as a weak and less toxic RNA adjuvant. We conjugated uPIC(40:400) with different shaped gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) electrostatically. Conjugation with gold nanorods, but not spherical AuNPs, markedly enhanced the adjuvanticity of uPIC(40:400), leading to the suppression of viral infection in mice. Notably, conjugation with gold nanorods did not increase the inflammatory cytokine production in dendritic cells. These data indicated that gold nanorods can provide a good platform for enhancing the weak adjuvanticity of uPIC(40:400) while maintaining low inflammatory cytokine production toward the development of intranasal inactivated influenza vaccines.

    In this study, we have prepared double-stranded DNA brushes on glass or quartz substrates through the immobilization of biotinylated oligo-DNA, followed by hybridization and polymerization of the DNA by a surface-initiated enzymatic polymerization method. The density of the DNA brush was calculated based on UV spectra and agarose gel electrophoresis. Prepared DNA brushes showed a relatively high density of DNA chains (over 1500 chains/mu m(2)) independent of the length of the DNA. Atomic force microscopy of the 2D-patterned DNA brushes indicated dynamic changes in height under various salt concentrations. These results provided insight into the conformation of DNA brushes.

    We demonstrate that gold nanoparticles (GNPs) can spontaneously self-assemble to form hollow structures in the presence of sugar-terminated fluorinated-oligo(ethylene glycol) ligands. The size of the fabricated gold nanoparticle vesicles (GNVs) was dependent on the solvent properties, the number of glucose units at the terminal of the surface ligands, and the initial GNP concentration. Time-dependent studies showed that quick aggregation and subsequent slow fusion were involved in the GNV formation in solution.

    Stimuli-responsive assembly of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) with precise control of the plasmonic properties, assembly size, and stimuli responsivity has shown potential benefits with regard to biosensing devices and drug-delivery systems. Here we present a new pH-responsive coassembly system of oligo(ethylene glycol) (OEG)-coated AuNPs with anionic polymers as an external mediator via hydrogen bonding in water. Hydrogen-bond-driven coassemblies of OEG-AuNPs with poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) were confirmed by the monitoring of plasmonic peaks and hydrodynamic diameters. In this system, the protonation of anionic polymers on change in pH triggered the formation of hydrogen bond between the OEG-AuNPs and polymers, providing sensitive pH responsivity. The plasmonic properties and assembly size are affected by both the ratio of PAA to AuNPs and the molecular weight of PAAs. In addition, the attachment of hydrophobic groups to the surface ligand or anionic polymer changed the responsive pH range. These results demonstrated that the coassembly with an external mediator via hydrogen bonding provides a stimuli-responsive assembly system with tunable plasmonic properties, assembly size, and stimuli responsivity.

    Control over the orientation of metal nanorods is important for both fundamental and applied research. We show that gold nanorods (GNRs) can be aligned in a single direction by adsorbing positively charged GNRs onto a double-strand DNA-grafted substrate through electrostatic interaction. The ordered structure can be optimized by controlling the density of the positive charges on the surface of the GNRs. We found, in agreement with the results of theoretical simulation, that the resultant structure exhibits plasmonic properties that are dependent on the GNR orientation relative to the direction of an oscillating electric field. Our approach provides new insights into the polymer-assisted self-assembly of rod-shaped nanoparticles utilizing electrostatic interactions.

    Gold nanoparticles (GNPs) show promise as both drug and imaging carriers with applications in both diagnosis and therapy. For the safe and effective use of such gold nanomaterials in the biomedical field, it is crucial to understand how the size and shape of the nanomaterials affect their biological features, such as in vitro cellular uptake speed and accumulation as well as cytotoxicity. Herein, we focus on triangular gold nanoparticles (TNPs) of four different sizes (side length 46, 55, 72, and 94 nm; thickness 30 nm) and compare the cellular internalization efficiency with those of spherical nanoparticles (SNPs) of various diameters (22, 39, and 66 nm). Both surfaces were coated with anionic thiol ligands. Inductively coupled plasma emission spectrometry (ICP-ES) data demonstrated that TNPs with longer sides showed higher levels of uptake into RAW264.7 and HeLa cells. On the other hand, in the case of SNPs, those with smaller diameters showed higher levels of uptake in both cells. Our results support the notion of a reverse size dependence of TNPs and SNPs in terms of cellular uptake. For HeLa cells, in particular, 20-fold more efficient internalization was observed for TNPs with longer sides (72 nm side length) compared to SNPs (66 nm) with a similar surface area. These results highlight the importance of the shape of nanomaterials on their interactions with cells and provide a useful guideline for the use of TNPs.

    This paper presents the thermoresponsive assembly behaviors of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs; 3, 5, and 10 nm in diameter) that are coated with a self-assembled monolayer of oligo(ethylene glycol) (OEG) ligands terminated with alkyl heads. AuNPs (5 nm in diameter) coated with OEG ligands without an alkyl head did not assemble within a temperature range from 20 to 70 degrees C. However, AuNPs coated with ethyl, iso-propyl, and propyl-headed OEG AuNPs afforded assembly at temperatures of 56, 33, and 19 degrees C, respectively, indicating that the assembly temperature can be tuned over a wide range by slight changes in the hydrophobicity of the alkyl head. Almost no hysteresis during the heating/cooling cycles was observed for the assembly/disassembly process. The diameter of the AuNPs also affected the assembly temperature, with increases in the diameter of the AuNP affording a lower assembly temperature. The ligand with the shorter alkyl tail length provided the lower assembly temperature of AuNPs than the ligand with longer tail.

    We demonstrate that binary mixtures of small and large gold nanoparticles (GNPs) (5/15, 5/30, 10/30, and 15/30 nm in diameter) in the presence of a glucose-terminated fluorinated oligo(ethylene glycol) ligand can spontaneously form size-segregated assemblies. The outermost layer of the assembly is composed of a single layer of small-sized GNPs, while the larger-sized GNPs are located in the interior, forming what is referred to as a yolk/shell assembly. Time course study reveals that small and large GNPs aggregate together, and these kinetically trapped aggregations were transformed into a size-segregated structure by repeating fusions. A yolk/shell structure was directly visualized in solution by X-ray laser diffraction imaging, indicating that the structure was truly formed in solution, but not through a drying process.

    In conventional cell culture systems, trypsin is generally used for cell harvesting. However, trypsin damages the cells due to the nonselective degradation of proteins on the cell surface. This is a critical issue for cell culture systems. Therefore, an alternative cell culture system with the lowest possible impact on cells is desired. In this paper, we have focused on DNA as a sacrificial layer and DNase as an alternate enzyme instead of trypsin. DNase ought not to result in damage to or stress on cells as it only hydrolyzes DNAs while the plasma membrane and extracellular matrices are basically composed of lipids, proteins, and glycosides. Therefore, we fabricated DNA-grafted substrates as cell culture dishes and evaluated this novel cell culture system. As a result, we were able to culture several types of mammalian cells on the DNA-grafted substrates, with the cells harvested using DNase with only little damage to the cells. This cell culture system could provide a breakthrough in cell culturing technology.

    In recent years, self-assembly beyond the molecule, which combines biological chemistry, materials science and nano- or micro-meter scale technology, has attracted much attention. Fundamental research on the self-assembly of non-molecular systems such as metal nanoparticles, which are regarded as "artificial molecules'', can enhance our understanding of the concept of self-assembly. Herein, we propose a robust strategy for the dimension-controllable fabrication of nano-assemblies of nanoparticles through tuning inter-particle interactions using suitable surface ligands. The formation of hydrogels consisting of a fibrous assembly of quantum dots (QDs), multi-layered gold nanoparticles (AuNPs), and AuNP vesicles as well as their prospective applications are investigated. The development of AuNP vesicles with hollow structures and special optical properties motivated by biomimetics has been extensively explored in medicinal chemistry for potential application to drug delivery systems (DDSs) and as a platform for surface-enhanced Raman scattering as an analytical tool. Novel self-assembly strategies using Janus-like nanoparticles are also discussed.

    Solution-phase synthesis and post-synthetic bio-modification have continued to play a dominant role in preparation of nanostructured biomaterials. Heterogeneous nucleation and growth that occur much more often in nature, however, remain rarely explored in nano-biomaterials research. We have newly developed a DNA-modulated photoconversion approach to uniform silver nanoparticles that afford DNA-directed recognition and multi-mode imaging. The present study was aimed at understanding the rapid heterogeneous nucleation and growth of AgNPs at the solid-liquid interface with the aid of DNA. Dynamic changes in absorbance, size and morphology of silver nanostructures were monitored and analyzed to clarify the growth kinetics, which indicated a synthetic route involving synchronous growth of silver nanostructures and the fragmentation and consumption of AgCl. Various stabilizers, including polymer and amino acids, were assessed and compared with respect to the efficacy in photoconversion of AgCl. DNA was found to offer the best monodispersity and the smallest diameter for the resultant AgNPs, due to its strong interactions to silver species as well as excellent charge dispersion ability. By controlling the physicochemical property of DNA through choice of pH and ionic strength, we have demonstrated tunable structure and composition of the nanoparticles. (C) 2015 Elsevier Inc.

    This study aims at the synthesis of Janus gold nanoparticles (Janus GNPs) with hydrophilic/hydrophobic faces by a simple ligand exchange reaction in an homogeneous system and at the elucidation of the self-assembled structures of the Janus GNPs in water. As hydrophilic surface ligands, we synthesized hexaethylene glycol (E6)-terminated thiolate ligands with C3, C7, or C11 alkyl chains, referred to as E6C3, E6C7, and E6C11, respectively. As a hydrophobic ligand, a butyl-headed thiolate ligand C4-E6C11, in which a C4 alkyl was introduced on the E6C11 terminus, was synthesized. The degree of segregation between the two ligands on the GNPs (5 nm in diameter) was examined by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of fright mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) analysis. We found that the choice of immobilization methods, one-step or two-step addition of the two ligands to the GNP solution, crucially affects the degree of segregation. The two-step addition of a hydrophilic ligand (E6C3) followed by a hydrophobic ligand (C4-E6C11) produced a large degree of segregation on the GNPs, providing Janus-like GNPs. When dispersed in water, these Janus-like GNPs formed assemblies of similar to 160 nm in diameter, whereas Domain GNPs, in which the two ligands formed partial domains on the surface, were precipitated even when the molar ratio of the hydrophilic ligand and the hydrophobic ligand on the surface of the NPs was almost 1:1. The assembled structure of the Janus-like GNPs in water was directly observed by pulsed coherent X-ray solution scattering using an X-ray free-electron laser, revealing irregular spherical structures with uneven surfaces.

    A box-shaped' three-dimensional (3D) DNA origami of similar to 40-nm dimensions was selectively formed by closing a symmetric open motif with three orthogonal faces. This 3D DNA origami was used as an intelligent nano-container to encapsulate exactly one 10-nm gold nanoparticle (AuNP). AuNPs were functionalized with thiol-modified DNA strands and attached to one of the faces of the open motif, which was designed to be an interior surface of the box and decorated with three complementary strands. The open motif was then closed into the box shape as triggered by the addition of DNA strands joining the remaining edges. An examination of the suitable folding path of an M13 scaffold using fluorescently labeled staple strands revealed that the flexibility at the hinge was essential for the efficient closing of the DNA origami container. Atomic force microscope and transmission electron microscope imaging of agarose-gel-purified complexes clearly showed the successful encapsulation of one AuNP inside the shell.

    DNA molecules have come under the spotlight as potential templates for the fabrication of nanoscale products, such as molecular-scale electronic or photonic devices. Herein, we report an enhanced approach for the synthesis of oligoblock copolymer-type DNA by using the Klenow fragment exonuclease minus of E. coli DNA polymerase I (KF-) in a multi-step reaction with natural and unnatural nucleotides. First, we confirmed the applicability of unnatural nucleotides with 7-deaza-nucleosides-which was expected because they were non-metalized nucleotides-on the unique polymerization process known as the "strand-slippage model". Because the length of the DNA sequence could be controlled by tuning the reaction time, analogous to a living polymerization reaction on this process, stepwise polymerization provided DNA block copolymers with natural and unnatural bases. AFM images showed that this DNA block copolymer could be metalized sequence-selectively. This approach could expand the utility of DNA as a template.

    The nanoparticle-based delivery of siRNA with a noncationic outermost surface at a low particle concentration is greatly desired. We newly synthesized a bifurcated ligand (BL) possessing hydrophobic and hydrophilic arms as a surface ligand for gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) to allow siRNA delivery. The concept underlying the design of this ligand is that amphiphilic property should allow AuNPs to permeate the cell cytosol thorough the endosomal membrane. BLs and quaternary cationic ligands were codisplayed on 40 nm AuNPs, which were subsequently coated with siRNA via electrostatic interaction. The number of siRNAs immobilized on a single nanoparticle was 26, and the conjugate showed a negative zeta potential due to siRNAs on the outermost surface of the AuNPs. Apparent gene silencing of luciferase expression in HeLa cells was achieved at an AuNP concentration as low as 60 pM. Almost no gene silencing was observed for AuNPs not displaying BLs. To reveal the effect of the BL, we compared the number of AuNPs internalized into HeLa cells and the localization in the cytosol between AuNPs displaying and those not displaying BLs. These analyses indicated that the role of BLs is not only the simple promotion of cellular uptake but also involves the enhancement of AuNPs permeation into the cytosol from the endosomes, leading to effective gene silencing.

    Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) coated with ester-headed or ether-headed PEG ligands were synthesized. Ester-headed AuNPs, but not ether-headed, were transferred from the organic phase (CH2Cl2) to the alkali aqueous phase, indicating that the hydrolysis of the ester moiety triggered the phase transfer of the AuNPs. We found that AuNPs with ester-headed ligands (ester-AuNPs) were internalized into HeLa cells at a greater level than were ether-headed AuNPs.

    Silver halide (AgX, X = Cl, Br, I)-based materials represent an emerging class of heterogeneous photocatalysts. Despite progress in the synthesis of carrier-separated AgX-based photocatalysts, a number of issues remain unaddressed, including complicated synthesis, unfavorably large size and therefore poor photocatalytic performance of the resultant structures. Here we show the one-step DNA-programmable synthesis of Ag/AgCl nanostructures that takes only approximately 1 min for photocatalytic application. The optimal DNA-encapsulated structures show DNA sequence-specific sizes down to less than 40 nm with a Ag/AgCl composition ratio of 2:1, affording a vastly increased surface area and higher photocatalytic activity than any Ag/AgX nanostructures reported previously by over two orders of magnitude. From a physical standpoint, importantly, the plasmonic nanostructured silver in Ag/AgCl accelerates the photocatalytic reaction in terms of fast electron injection to AgCl, leading to enhanced hole-electron separation and high-performance photocatalysis under visible light. To test the effect of DNA encapsulation on the Ag/AgCl nanostructures, both positively and negatively charged organic compounds serve as the model pollutants to assess their photocatalytic selectivity. Our results show that the photodecomposition of the positively charged compounds obeys a first-order rate law, whereas the negatively charged compound is decomposed with zero-order kinetics. This comparison offers a mechanistic insight into reaction kinetics on the DNA-encapsulated photocatalyst. We further find that the DNA-encapsulated Ag/AgCl photocatalysts are robust and can be recycled. To extend the applicability of the Ag/AgCl nanostructures, their use in the efficient photocatalytic inactivation of cancer cells is also demonstrated for the first time, opening up a new avenue to daylight-based theranostics. © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

    Top-down processes, such as photolithography, have been approaching a limit with regard to the fabrication of fine structures. For the preparation of molecular-scale fine structures, it is important that conventional self-assembly methods should be adapted to a "programmable self-assembly" as a next-generation bottom-up system. We aim to fabricate nano-gap electrodes by sequence-selective metallization of template DNA. We have already reported the fabrication of sequence-selective platinum nano-wires using poly(guanine) and poly(adenine-thymine) diblock DNA, which is enzymatically polymerized as a template. That method, however, cannot be extended to the preparation of oligoblock DNA. In this study, we prepared triblock DNA sequences using guanine as a platinum-binding natural nucleotide and 7-deaza-guanine as a platinum-nonbinding unnatural nucleotide for the construction of platinum nano-wires with nano-gap structures. ©2013, The Society of Polymer Science,.

    Previously, we reported gold nanoparticles coated with semi-fluorinated ligands self-assembled into gold nanoparticle vesicles (AuNVs) with a sub-100 nm diameter in tetrahydrofuran (THF).(1) Although this size is potentially useful for in vivo use, the biomedical applications of AuNVs were limited, as the vesicular structure collapsed in water. In this paper, we demonstrate that the AuNVs can be dispersed in water by cross-linking each gold nanoparticle with thiol-terminated PEG so that the cross-linked vesicles can work as a drug delivery carrier enabling light-triggered release. Rhodamine dyes or anticancer drugs were encapsulated within the cross-linked vesicles by heating to 62.5 degrees C. At this temperature, the gaps between nanoparticles open, as confirmed by a blue shift in the plasmon peak and the more efficient encapsulation than that observed at room temperature. The cross-linked AuNVs released encapsulated drugs upon short-term laser irradiation (5 min, 532 nm) by again opening the nanogaps between each nanoparticle in the vesicle. On the contrary, when heating the solution to 70 degrees C, the release speed of encapsulated dyes was much lower (more than 2 h) than that triggered by laser irradiation, indicating that cross-linked AuNVs are highly responsive to light. The vesicles were efficiently internalized into cells compared to discrete gold nanoparticles and released anticancer drugs upon laser irradiation in cells. These results indicate that cross-linked AuNVs, sub-100 nm in size, could be a new type of light-responsive drug delivery carrier applicable to the biomedical field.

    The effects of water on the mechanical properties of synthetic hydrophilic polymers with doublenetwork (DN) structures were studied under different relative humidities (RH). It was found that they could sustain nearly the same high Young's modulus as dry DN polymers in the RH range 10-80% (water content 3-17 wt %), that is, more than 102 MPa. However, when the RH exceeds 80%, DN polymers abruptly absorb large amounts of water (water content 90 wt %) and transform to a highly water-swollen "gel state" with a decrease in the Young's modulus of 3 orders of magnitude. Spectroscopic analyses revealed that water molecules below RH 80% are strongly bound to hydrophilic moieties with highly restricted mobility water under such states improves rather than reduces mechanical properties by behaving as a plasticizer. DN polymers capable of sustaining high mechanical properties, even under RH 80%, have potential uses as hydrophilic materials. © 2012 American Chemical Society.

    A nearest-neighbor recogntion analysis has been performed in cholesterol-rich and cholesterol-poor liposomes derived from 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) in the presence of varying concentrations of chloroform. This analysis has yielded a funamentally new, molecular-level view of the interaction of general anesthetics with lipid bilayers, which may be relevant to their biological action; that is, DPPC Forms 1:1 complexes with CHCl(3) in both membranes in the fluid bilayer state.

    Nearest-neighbor recognition measurements have been made for an exchangeable phospholipid (A) interacting with an exchangeable form of cholesterol (B) in host membranes derived from 1, 2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine and varying concentrations of cholesterol, 7 beta-hydroxycholesterol (7 beta-OH), and 25-hydroxycholesterol (25-OH). Whereas partial replacement of cholesterol with 7 beta-OH strengthens the association between A and B, a similar substitution with 25-OH weakens this association. A model that accounts for this dichotomy, and the possible relevance of these findings to the cytotoxicity of 7 beta-OH and to Alzheimer's disease are briefly discussed.

    Nearest-neighbor recognition experiments have been carried out in fluid liposomal membranes made from 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) and cholesterol using exchangeable dimers derived from 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine and cholesterol. In cholesterol-rich bilayers, the association between these two exchangeable lipids was reduced as the curvature of the membrane increases; that is, when the diameter of the liposomes was below ca. 200 nm. In sharp contrast, the mixing of these exchangeable lipids was close to random in the cholesterol-poor membranes, regardless of their curvature. The biological implications of these findings are briefly discussed.

    The mixing behavior of an exchangeable phospholipid (A) with an exchangeable sterol (B) in host. bilayers made from 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) containing varying concentrations of cholesterol has been examined via the nearest-neighbor recognition method. At low sterol concentrations (i.e., 2.5 mol %) the mixing between A and B is close to ideal. Incremental increases in the sterol concentration to 40 mol % led to net increases in the affinity between A and B. Similar mixing experiments that were carried out in the presence of chloroform showed a leveling effect, where moderate sterol-phospholipid affinity was observed in all cases. These results, together with the fact that the number of chloroform molecules that are absorbed per phospholipid is essentially constant and independent of the sterol content, support a model in which chloroform favors solvation of the phospholipids and a common membrane state is produced. Fluorescence measurements and Raman spectra have also shown that chloroform significantly loosens both cholesterol-poor and cholesterol-rich membranes made from DPPC. In a broader context, these results suggest a fundamentally new mechanim of anesthesia, where the anesthetic, by solvating the lipid components, profoundly changes the lateral organization of the lipid framework.

    Although molecular recognitions between membrane receptors and their soluble ligands have been analyzed using their soluble proteins in bulk solutions, molecular recognitions of membrane receptors should be studied on lipid membranes considering their orientation and dynamics on membrane surfaces. We employed Staphylococcal Protein A (SpA) oligo B domains with long trialkyl-tags from E. coli (LppBx, x = 1, 2, and 5) and immobilized LppBx on lipid layers using hydrophobic interactions from the trialkyl-tag, while maintaining the orientation of B domain-chains on a 27 MHz quartz-crystal microbalance (QCM; AT-cut shear mode). The binding of IgG Fc regions to LppBx on lipid layers was detected by frequency decreases (mass increases) on the QCM. The maximum amount bound (Delta m(max)), association constants (K-a), association and dissociation rate constants (k(1) and k(-1), respectively) were obtained. Binding kinetics of IgG to LppB2 and LppB5 were quite similar, showing a simple 1:1 binding of the IgG Fc region to the B domain, when the surface coverage of LppB2 and LppB5 on the lipid surface is low (1.4%). When LppB5 was immobilized at the high surface coverage of 3.5%, the complex bindings of IgG such as one IgG bound to one or two LppB5 on the membrane could be observed. IgG-LppB1 binding was largely restricted because of steric hindrance on lipid surfaces. This gives a suggestion why Protein A has five IgG binding domains. Copyright (c) 2007 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    We report the layer-by-layer (LbL) preparation of multilayered thin films that consist solely of DNA. The properties of the films were varied by assembling the layers from different oligonucleotide building blocks. which are composed of repeating homopolymeric units of nucleotides [adenosine (A), cytosine (C). guanine (G). and thymidine (T)] or "random" sequences. Films assembled from oligonucleotides with a single complementary unit did not show continual layer buildup. To form a repeating multilayer system, it was necessary for single-stranded DNA to be available for subsequent layers to hybridize. By using oligonucleotides with multiple nucleotide units, multilayer films were Successfully assembled. We demonstrate that the thickness and swellability of the films can be controlled by the extent of hydrogen bonding (the G/C content of the oligonucleotide) and orientation of the oligomers. We have examined the stability and swellability of the films in solutions of varying salt concentration as well as in a denaturing urea solution. Stable, hollow DNA capsules were also formed by preparing the films on sacrificial colloidal templates. followed by removal of the core. The assembly of propagating structures through DNA hybridization paves the way for the engineering of DNA films with tailored composition, structure, and permeability, making them likely to find application in drug/gene delivery and biomolecular sensing.

    Irinotecan (CPT-11) is a widely-used potent anticancer drug that inhibits mammalian DNA topoisomerase I, however overexpression of the ATP-binding cassette transporter ABCG2 can confer cancer cells resistance to SN-38, the active form of CPT-11. In the present study, we have examined the contribution of three variant forms of ABCG2 to SN-38 resistance. Exogenous expression of the Arg482 (wild type), Gly482, and Thr482 variants of ABCG2 conferred HEK293 cells resistance to SN-38 by 15.0-, 5.0-, and 5.3-fold, respectively. In plasma membrane vesicles prepared from the ABCG2 variant cDNA-transfected HEK293 cells, [Arg482]ABCG2 transported SN-38 and its glucuronide conjugate in an ATP-dependent manner however, only minimal transport activities were observed with the other variants (Gly482 and Thr482). In addition, we have screened natural flavonoids to find potent inhibitors of [Arg482]ABCG2. Quercetin was found to be the strongest inhibitor (Ki = 0.28 μM) among natural flavonoids tested in the plasma membrane system in this study. When [Arg482]ABCG2-transfected HEK293 cells were incubated with SN-38 in the presence of 20 μM quercetin, cellular resistance to SN-38 was partly reversed. In this context, certain flavonoid derivatives are considered to be good candidates for development of ABCG2 inhibitors.

    Overexpression of the ATP-binding cassette transporter ABCG2 reportedly causes multidrug resistance, whereas altered drug-resistance profiles and substrate specificity are implicated for certain variant forms of ABCG2. At least three variant forms of ABCG2 have been hitherto documented on the basis of their amino acid moieties (i.e., arginine, glycine and threonine) at position 482. In the present study we have generated those ABCG2 variants by site-directed mutagenesis and expressed them in HEK-293 cells. Exogenous expression of the Arg(482), Gly(482) and Thr(482) variant forms of ABCG2 conferred HEK-293 cell resistance toward mitoxantrone 15-, 47- and 54-fold, respectively, as compared with mock-transfected HEK-293 cells. The transport activity of those variants was examined by using plasma-membrane vesicles prepared from ABCG2-overexpressing HEK293 cells. [Arg(482)]ABCG2 transports [H-3]methotrexate in an ATP-dependent manner; however, no transport activity was observed with the other variants (Gly(482) and Thr(482)). Transport of methotrexate by [Arg(482).]ABCG2 was significantly inhibited by mitoxantrone, doxorubicin and rhodamine 123, but not by S-octylglutathione. Furthermore, ABCG2 was found to exist in the plasma membrane as a homodimer bound via cysteinyl disulphide bond(s). Treatment with mercaptoethanol decreased its apparent molecular mass from 140 to 70 kDa. Nevertheless, ATP-dependent transport of methotrexate by [Arg(482)]ABCG2 was little affected by such mercaptoethanol treatment. It is concluded that Arg 412 is a critical amino acid moiety in the substrate specificity and transport of ABCG2 for certain drugs, such as methotrexate.

    Among the many important biopolymers, DNA has been a key component in material sciences and nanotechnology. We have focused on the fabrication of metal nanoarchitectures using DNA as a template due to its intrinsic properties and advantages, such as a well-ordered structure, rich chemical functionality and programmable base-pairing interactions, as well as the availability of multiple enzymes for DNA manipulation. In this review, various methods for the fabrication of DNA-templated metal nanoarchitecture are introduced. The methods include DNA-mediated metal nanoparticle formation, DNA-templated conductive nanowire fabrication by metal depositions, sequence-selective metal deposition onto DNA for elaborate nanowire fabrication and DNA brushes as templates for use on solid substrates. DNA sequence-selective binding of metal ions and metal complexes and subsequent reduction to metals are fundamental issues for the fabrication of metal nanoarchitectures. The resultant metal nanoparticles and their assemblies can be used as functional nanomaterials in applications such as catalysts, conducting nanowires, optical nanomaterials and especially in metamaterials. This biopolymer-templating method can be applied not only to metal deposition but also to the assembly of functional molecules.

    Summary: Hitherto three variant forms of ABCG2 have been documented on the basis of their amino acid moieties (i.e., Arg, Gly, and Thr) at the position 482. In the present study, we have generated those variants of ABCG2 by site-directed mutagenesis and expressed them in Sf9 insect cells. The apparent molecular weight of the expressed ABCG2 variants was 130,000 under non-reductive conditions, whereas it was reduced to 65,000 by treatment with mercaptoethanol. It is suggested that ABCG2 exists in the plasma membrane of Sf9 cells as a homodimer bound through cysteinyl disulfide bond(s). Both ATPase activity and drug transport of ABCG2 variants were examined by using plasma membrane fractions prepared from ABCG2-overexpressing Sf9 cells. The ATPase activity of the plasma membrane expressing ABCG2 (Gly-482) was significantly enhanced by prazosin. In contrast, ABCG2 (Arg-482) transports [ 3H]methotrexate in an ATP-dependent manner however, no transport activity was observed with the other variants (Gly-482 and Thr-482). It is strongly suggested that the amino acid moiety at the position of 482 is critical for the substrate specificity of ABCG2. © 2003, The Japanese Society for the Study of Xenobiotics.

    無機ナノ粒子は,プラズモン共鳴,量子効果,磁気特性など,実に魅力的な性質を示す.これらは,孤立したひとつの「情報」として捉えられる.一方,来たるべき Society5.0 の世界では,「情報」の,動的・有機的な書き換え技術が求められる.すなわち,さまざまな刺激により,動的かつ可逆的に「情報」を書き換え可能とする材料研究がサイエンスとして求められる.ナノ粒子材料の視点に立てば,ナノ粒子の「情報」が,外部刺激により増強,消失,変換,伝搬できれば理想的である.では,如何にすれば実現できるであろうか?本研究では,ナノ粒子表面でのデンドロンのダイナミズムに由来したハイブリッドデンドリマーへの異方的形状の誘起によりナノ粒子の「情報」を動的に外部制御する手法を開発することを目的とした. 本研究では,次の5つの研究項目を掲げ研究を遂行する.【1】機能性無機ナノ粒子をコアとするハイブリッドデンドリマーの設計と合成.【2】オリゴチオフェン型液晶性デンドロンの設計,合成,評価.【3】ハイブリッドデンドリマーからなる液晶性自己組織構造構築・制御法開拓.【4】先端計測によるハイブリッドデンドリマーの液晶性自己組織構造解析.【5】ハイブリッドデンドリマーの材料特性解析・制御. なかでも本年度は特に,【1】から【3】につき,研究代表者および分担者の密接な連携により集中的に材料合成を行った.まず,【1】では,分担者松原と連携し,金,量子ドット,Fe3O4, FePt 球状ナノ粒子をコアとする“液晶性有機無機ハイブリッドデンドリマー”を設計・合成した.一方,分担者三友は主に,COOH 基含有チオールを内部シェルとした単分散金ナノロッドの調製および精製手法の開拓を行った.【2】では,液晶性デンドロンの精密有機合成を行った.また,【3】では,磁気誘導加熱および小角X線散乱回折により特性評価を行った.

    本研究では、金属ナノ構造体が特定波長の光の照射下で示す表面プラズモン共鳴を利用した生体高分子の高感度検出法として、表面増強ラマン散乱測定基材の開発に取り組んでいる。表面プラズモン共鳴は金属ナノ構造体の中でも鋭利な部分で強く増強され、特に狭いギャップ部位において著しく増強されることが知られているが、狭いギャップ部位に大きな生体高分子を導入することは容易ではない。これまで研究実施者はハイドロゲルの体積変化を利用することでギャップ距離を動的に制御する手法により狭いギャップ部位に大きな物質を導入する効率を高める手法を開発してきたが、さらなる高感度化が必要であった。そこで、本年度はゲルを利用した金ナノ構造体間ギャップ距離の制御性について、原子間力顕微鏡観察、電子顕微鏡観察、顕微分光測定とプラズモンスペクトルの計算により、詳細に調べた。その結果、金ナノ構造体作製時の洗浄と表面処理を適切にすることで、金ナノ構造体は数ナノメートルの精度で均一に動かせるようになることが確認され、高い制御性を実現できることが明らかになった。しかしながら、電子線リソグラフィを利用したナノ構造体の作製では鋭利なエッジ構造を作製することは未だ困難であるため、ナノ粒子を適切に配置して利用する手法の開発にも取り組んできた。実際には、基板上に脂質膜を固定化し、その上に鋭利なエッジを有する三角形プレート状ナノ粒子を固定化する手法を開発している。これまでに、脂質および金ナノ粒子の固定化については確認できており、現在は金ナノ粒子が脂質膜上で流動的に動き、最適化な配置の形成が可能であるかの検討を進めている。

    ナノ材料を使うことで免疫応答を制御した新しいワクチンの開発を目指した。そのためにナノ粒子と細胞との相互作用を調べ、ワクチンとしての展開まで行った。プレート状と球状金ナノ粒子を比較すると、粒子の大きさに対する細胞取り込み効果が逆転することを見つけた。さらに、インフルエンザウイルス経鼻ワクチンにおける免疫賦活剤として、ロッド状と球状粒子を比較すると、ロッド状の方が優れていた。ナノ粒子でワクチンを設計する際には、粒子サイズや形状の要因が重要であることがわかった。新たなワクチン設計として、抗原の粒子表面への配向制御固定化のための表面分子合成も進めた。

    機能性ナノ粒子の自己集合化制御は、光学・電子・医療デバイス開発につながる技術となる。本研究では水溶液中で、ナノ粒子が外部から加えた高分子とともにpH刺激に応じて集合体形成する系を見いだした。粒子表面にオリゴエチレングリコール分子を固定化した金ナノ粒子と、外部に添加したポリアクリル酸のようなアニオン性高分子が酸性条件下で共凝集することを示した。アニオン性高分子の分子量によって金ナノ粒子の集合サイズが制御でき、疎水基の導入によって凝集pHを変えられることがわかった。

    単電子トランジスタは、劇的な低消費電力を可能とする素子として注目されている。室温での動作を可能にするためには、ソース電極とドレイン電極の間に直径は数nmの「クーロン島」(極小の導電性金属)をnmの精度で置く必要がある。しかしながら現在のフォトリソグラフィー技術ではこのような精密な構造を作ることは不可能である。そこで本研究では核酸DNAの分子認識を用いることで、自己組織化的にナノワイヤー-量子ドット-ナノワイヤー構造のような単電子トランジスタ構造を作製した。
