  • Interactions between polyoxometalates and biological systems: from drug
           design to artificial enzymes
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Current Opinion in Biotechnology, Volume 58Author(s): Laura S Van Rompuy, Tatjana N Parac-VogtPolyoxometalates have long been studied in a variety of biological applications. Interactions between the highly charged POM molecules and biological molecules frequently occur through hydrogen-bonding and electrostatic interactions. Tellurium-centred Anderson-Evans POMs show exceptional promise as crystallization agents, while acidic and metal-substituted POMs may provide interesting alternatives to enzymes in proteomics applications. While POMs also show interesting results in a number of medicinal applications, for example as anti-amyloid agents for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and as anti-tumoral agents, their use is often impeded by their toxicity. Many recent studies have therefore focussed on POM-functionalization to reduce toxicity and increase activity by addition of biological targeting molecules.
       
  • Platelet for drug delivery
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Current Opinion in Biotechnology, Volume 58Author(s): Yifei Lu, Quanyin Hu, Chen Jiang, Zhen GuPlatelets play a vital physiological role in hemostasis, inflammation and tissue regeneration, which are associated with wound healing as well as cancer development and metastasis. These years, a variety of platelet-mediated drug delivery approaches have been developed due to their unique properties, such as quick replenishment and site-specific activation/adhesion. In this Current Opinion, focuses are put on strategies leveraging the physiological functions of platelets for the design of drug delivery systems, including platelet engineering, platelet hitchhiking, membrane coating, synthetic platelet fabrication and platelet-triggered drug release for different applications.Graphical abstractGraphical abstract for this article
       
  • Engineering-driven biological insights into DNA polymerase mechanism
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2019Source: Current Opinion in Biotechnology, Volume 60Author(s): Vitor B PinheiroDNA-dependent DNA polymerases have been extensively studied for over 60 years and lie at the core of multiple biotechnological and diagnostic applications. Nevertheless, these complex molecular machines remain only partially understood. Here we present some evidence on how polymerase engineering for the synthesis and replication of xenobiotic nucleic acids (XNAs) have improved our understanding of these enzymes and how that can be used to gain further insight into their mechanism. Better understanding of the mechanisms of DNA polymerases can accelerate their engineering and we highlight how it is now feasible to use structure-based and function-based approaches to systematically and iteratively develop XNA polymerases for increasingly divergent chemistries.Graphical abstractGraphical abstract for this article
       
  • Coupling efficiency of secondary active transporters
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Current Opinion in Biotechnology, Volume 58Author(s): Ryan K Henderson, Klaus Fendler, Bert PoolmanSecondary active transporters are fundamental to a myriad of biological processes. They use the electrochemical gradient of one solute to drive transport of another solute against its concentration gradient. Central to this mechanism is that the transport of one does not occur in the absence of the other. However, like in most of biology, imperfections in the coupling mechanism exist and we argue that these are innocuous and may even be beneficial for the cell. We discuss the energetics and kinetics of alternating-access in secondary transport and focus on the mechanistic aspects of imperfect coupling that give rise to leak pathways. Additionally, inspection of available transporter structures gives valuable insight into coupling mechanics, and we review literature where proteins have been altered to change their coupling efficiency.Graphical abstractGraphical abstract for this article
       
  • RNA nanostructures and scaffolds for biotechnology applications
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Current Opinion in Biotechnology, Volume 58Author(s): Hirohisa Ohno, Sae Akamine, Hirohide SaitoRNA plays important roles in the regulation of gene expressions and other cellular functions. It functions as both as an informational carrier and a nanomachine due to its complementary base-pairing ability and complexed three-dimensional structure. Several nanostructures have been designed and constructed by exploiting these natural RNA properties. In this review, we will introduce the design principles of RNA nanostructures and their biotechnology applications as molecular scaffolds. RNA-based molecular scaffolds can control the accumulation and interaction of target proteins at nanometer-scale to regulate the function of bacterial and mammalian cells. Combining useful property of RNA as a nano-material and a molecular scaffold may provide us powerful tools in biological research, bioengineering, and future medicine.Graphical abstractGraphical abstract for this article
       
  • Coordination-assembled supramolecular nanoplatforms: structural modulation
           and theranostic applications
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Current Opinion in Biotechnology, Volume 58Author(s): Han Zhang, Lei Kang, Qianli Zou, Xia Xin, Xuehai YanTheranostics possessing great potential in the treatment of various diseases gain attentions in recent years. Coordination-assembled supramolecular nanoplatforms are emerged as promising candidates for theranostic applications. With the facile, robust and versatile fabrication, these systems overcome the drawbacks of many existing theranostic nanoplatforms. Coordination-based supramolecular self-assembly offers the possibility for modulating the physicochemical properties, thus paving the way for theranostic applications. We highlight the most recent advances on the modulation of structures and properties of coordination-assembled supramolecular nanoplatforms and their exploration in theranostic applications. The long-term goal of this field is to achieve high-performance theranostics in clinic.Graphical abstractGraphical abstract for this article
       
  • Granular hydrogels: emergent properties of jammed hydrogel microparticles
           and their applications in tissue repair and regeneration
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2019Source: Current Opinion in Biotechnology, Volume 60Author(s): Lindsay Riley, Lucas Schirmer, Tatiana SeguraGranular hydrogels are emerging as a versatile and effective platform for tissue engineered constructs in regenerative medicine. The hydrogel microparticles (HMPs) that compose these materials exhibit particle jamming above a minimum packing fraction, which results in a bulk, yet dynamic, granular hydrogel scaffold. These injectable, microporous scaffolds possess self-assembling, shear-thinning, and self-healing properties. Recently, they have been utilized as cell cultures platforms and extracellular matrix mimics with remarkable success in promoting cellular infiltration and subsequent tissue remodeling in vivo. Furthermore, the modular nature of granular hydrogels accommodates heterogeneous HMP assembly, where varying HMPs have been fabricated to target distinct biological processes or deliver unique cargo. Such multifunctional materials offer enormous potential for capturing the structural and biofunctional complexity observed in native human tissue.Graphical abstractGraphical abstract for this article
       
  • Reprogramming the brain with synthetic neurobiology
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Current Opinion in Biotechnology, Volume 58Author(s): Elizabeth Gardner, Andrew EllingtonThe mammalian brain is among the most complex organs known in biology. Historically, neuroscience techniques have consisted primarily of low-throughput microscopy and electrophysiological approaches. While these methods will continue to serve the community, the emerging field of synthetic neurobiology may be better equipped to scale with systems neuroscience. By using genetic techniques to achieve cell-type specificity, a map of the connectome, neural activation and recording, and ultimately to program neural development itself, we can begin to build a better framework with which to understand the brain’s mechanisms.Graphical abstractGraphical abstract for this article
       
  • In vitro expression of genetically encoded non-standard peptides
           consisting of exotic amino acid building blocks
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Current Opinion in Biotechnology, Volume 58Author(s): Hisaaki Hirose, Christos Tsiamantas, Takayuki Katoh, Hiroaki SugaRibosomal incorporation of non-proteinogenic amino acids (NPaa) into peptides have made significant progress in recent years. These non-standard peptides have been utilized for a plethora of applications in the fields of chemical biology and therapeutics. Here we comprehensively review recent advances for the incorporation of exotic NPaa into peptide chain using custom-made in vitro translation system under reprogrammed genetic code. Such approaches allow us to express non-standard peptides containing various amino acid building blocks in the mRNA-encoding manner, leading to the discovery of therapeutically useful macrocyclic molecules with molecular weight of less than 2500 Da.
       
  • Cell-free transcription–translation: engineering biology from the
           nanometer to the millimeter scale
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Current Opinion in Biotechnology, Volume 58Author(s): David Garenne, Vincent NoireauxCell-free transcription–translation (TXTL) has become a highly versatile technology to construct, characterize and interrogate genetically programmed biomolecular systems implemented outside living organisms. By recapitulating gene expression in vitro, TXTL offers unparalleled flexibility to take apart, engineer and analyze quantitatively the effects of chemical, physical and genetic contexts on the function of biochemical systems, from simple regulatory elements to millimeter-scale pattern formation. Here, we review the capabilities of the current cell-free platforms for executing DNA programs in vitro. We describe the recent advances in programming using cell-free expression, a multidisciplinary playground that has enabled a myriad of novel applications in synthetic biology, biotechnology, and biological physics. Finally, we discuss the challenges and perspectives in the research area of TXTL-based constructive biology.Graphical abstractGraphical abstract for this article
       
  • Following nanomedicine activation with magnetic resonance imaging: why,
           how, and what’s next'
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Current Opinion in Biotechnology, Volume 58Author(s): Friederike Reeβing, Wiktor SzymanskiNanomedicines, such as liposomal formulations, play an important role in cancer therapy. To support their development, medical imaging modalities are employed for following the drug delivery. Encapsulation of MRI contrast agents, which change their relaxivity upon co-release with the drug, is a promising strategy for monitoring both the biodistribution and payload release from a nanocarrier. This approach is successfully applied in preclinical settings to image the activation of liposomes responsive to heat, pH changes or sonication. Recent advances include combination with different treatments and the implementation of chemical exchange saturation transfer imaging to gain spectral resolution over different contrast agents. However, this field still faces challenges, such as matching the pharmacokinetic profiles of the contrast agents and the liberated drugs.Graphical abstractGraphical abstract for this article
       
  • Engineering biological interactions on the nanoscale
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Current Opinion in Biotechnology, Volume 58Author(s): Yao Jiang, Sanam Chekuri, Ronnie H Fang, Liangfang ZhangNanoparticulate platforms have contributed significantly to the field of biomedical research, demonstrating advantages over traditional modalities in areas such as drug delivery, detoxification, and vaccination. When it comes to the design of nanoparticles, biomimetic strategies have become increasingly popular as a means of promoting effective interactions with biological systems. A recently developed cell membrane-coated nanoparticle platform can leverage the natural interactions that cells engage in with other cells, the extracellular matrix, and biomolecules in order to reduce undesirable nonspecific interactions, while increasing target-specific interactions. Here, we discuss the current state of these biomimetic nanoparticles and highlight how they can be used for various biomedical applications.Graphical abstractGraphical abstract for this article
