Cell-mimicking nanodecoys neutralize SARS-CoV-2 and mitigate lung injury in a non-human primate model of COVID-19

Nature Nanotechnology, Published online: 17 June 2021; doi:10.1038/s41565-021-00923-2In this paper the authors show that nanovesicles coated with lung spheroid cell membranes expressing angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 can bind the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, neutralizing the virus and preventing lung cell infections in murine and non-human primate...

Conformation-sensitive targeting of lipid nanoparticles for RNA therapeutics

Nature Nanotechnology, Published online: 17 June 2021; doi:10.1038/s41565-021-00928-xWhile targeted lipid nanoparticles might allow partial delivery of genetic materials to non-hepatic cells, the selectivity of this approach is still unsatisfying. Here the authors functionalize their lipid nanoparticles with a targeting moiety that recognizes a protein...

Flexo-photovoltaic effect in MoS<sub>2</sub>

Nature Nanotechnology, Published online: 17 June 2021; doi:10.1038/s41565-021-00919-yA strain-gradient approach induced by the phase-change transition enables the observation of the flexo-photovoltaic effect in MoS2.

Principles specific to the environment are presented,...

Making nano data FAIR enough

Nature Nanotechnology, Published online: 11 June 2021; doi:10.1038/s41565-021-00935-yThe FAIR principles provide compelling guidelines on how to achieve reusability of nanotechnology data.

X-ray-activated persistent luminescence nanomaterials for NIR-II imaging

Nature Nanotechnology, Published online: 10 June 2021; doi:10.1038/s41565-021-00922-3Persistent luminescence is a promising bioimaging technique that is not affected by background autofluorescence, but its in vivo application is challenged by the fact that the materials currently available are activated by high-energy light, with emission in the ultraviolet...

Quantum tomography of an entangled three-qubit state in silicon

Nature Nanotechnology, Published online: 07 June 2021; doi:10.1038/s41565-021-00925-0Among the candidates for large-scale quantum computing devices, silicon-based spin qubits offer an outstanding nanofabrication capability for scaling-up. In an array of three spin qubits in silicon, high-fidelity state preparation and control enable the creation of...
