      Two Cys-containing analogues of the anticancer drug Kahalalide F are synthesized and conjugated to 20 and 40 nm gold nanoparticles (GNPs). The resulting complexes are characterized by different analytical techniques to ...
    • Vetterlein, Claudia; Vásquez Salfate, Rodrigo; Bolaños, Karen; Acosta, Gerardo A.; Guzman, Fanny; Albericio, Fernando; Celis, Freddy; Campos, Marcelo; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo; Araya, Eyleen (Elsevier, 2018-06)
      We studied the photothermal release of carboxyfluorescein (CF) linked to the gold surface of gold nanorods (GNRs) by two Diels-Alder adducts of different lengths (n = 4 and n = 9). The functionalized GNRs were irradiated ...

    • Lara, Pablo; Palma Florez, Sujey; Salas Huenuleo, Edison; Polakovicova, Iva; Guerrero, Simón; Lobos González, Lorena; Campos, América; Muñoz, Luis; Jorquera Cordero, Carla; Varas Godoy, Manuel; Cancino, Jorge; Arias, Eloísa; Villegas, Jaime; Cruz, Luis J.; Albericio, Fernando; Araya, Eyleen; Corvalán, Alejandro H.; Quest, Andrew F. G.; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo (BMC, 2020)
      Background Extracellular vesicles (EVs) have shown great potential for targeted therapy, as they have a natural ability to pass through biological barriers and, depending on their origin, can preferentially accumulate at ...
    • Pérez Ortiz, Magdalena; Zapata Urzua, Claudio; Acosta, Gerardo A.; Álvarez Lueje, Alejandro; Albericio, Fernando; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo (Elsevier, 2017)
      In this work, the potential application of gold nanoparticles for GLP-1 analogues delivery was studied. For this purpose, the original sequence of the incretin GLP-1 was slightly modified in the C-terminal region by adding ...

    • Guerrero, Ariel R.; Hassan, Natalia; Escobar, Carlos A.; Albericio, Fernando; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo; Araya, Eyleen (Future Medicine Ltd., 2014)
      © 2014 Future Medicine Ltd. In this article, we describe how nanoparticles work in photothermally triggered drug delivery, starting with a description of the plasmon resonance and the photothermal effect, and how this is ...
    • Jara Guajardo, Pedro; Cabrera, Pablo; Celis, Freddy; Soler Jauma, Mónica; Berlanga Mora, Isadora; Parra Muñoz, Nicole; Acosta, Gerardo; Albericio, Fernando; Guzmán, Fanny; Campos, Marcelo; Álvarez, Alejandra; Morales Zavala, Francisco; Kogan, Marcelo J. (MDPI, 2020)
      The early detection of the amyloid beta peptide aggregates involved in Alzheimer's disease is crucial to test new potential treatments. In this research, we improved the detection of amyloid beta peptide aggregates in vitro ...
    • Álvarez, Claudio; Barriga, Andrés; Albericio, Fernando; Romero, María; Guzman, Fanny (MDPI, 2018-05)
      The elder (Sambucus spp.) tree has a number of uses in traditional medicine. Previous studies have demonstrated the antimicrobial properties of elderberry liquid extract against human pathogenic bacteria and also influenza ...
