Scicomvisuals is very proud to be on the cover of the October 25 (vol 6, no. 20) issue of Advanced Healthcare Materials (ADHM)!
The cover belongs to a paper by Alexander Kros and co-workers, who describe how mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) are delivered into cells via membrane fusion thereby omitting endocytosis pathways. Fusion is induced by a pair of complementary coiled-coil lipopeptides inserted into the membrane of cells and in the bilayer of lipid-coated MSNs. In this manner proteins can be efficiently delivered into the cytoplasm of cells.
In an adjusted form, the image appeared online in ACS Central Science in 2016.
