Polymer nanoreactors shown to produce and release antibiotics locally.


PMID 23073494

Abstract

We designed and prepared nanoreactors based on a poly(2-methyloxazoline)-block-poly(dimethylsiloxane)-block-poly(2-methyloxazoline (PMOXA-b-PDMS-b-PMOXA) amphiphilic triblock copolymer encapsulating the enzyme penicillin acylase for local and controlled production of antibiotics.
