Since their conception 50 years ago, molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have seen extensive development both in terms of synthetic routes and applications. Cells are perhaps the most challenging target for molecular imprinting. Although early work was based almost entirely around microprinting methods, recent developments have shifted towards epitope imprinting to generate MIP nanoparticles (NPs). Simultaneously, the development of techniques such as solid phase MIP synthesis has solved many historic issues of MIP production. This review briefly describes various approaches used in cell imprinting with a focus on applications of the created materials in imaging, drug delivery, diagnostics, and tissue engineering.

: Signal enhancing systems have been introduced to enable detection of cell surface antigens by flow cytometry. Cell surface antigens are important targets that describe the function and lineage of cells. Although flow cytometry is an effective tool for analysing cell surface antigens, this technique has poor sensitivity, which prohibits the detection of many important antigens on cell membranes. Thus, signal amplification is essential for developing practical tools for evaluating cell surface a...

: Blocking the HER2 signaling pathway has been an effective strategy in the treatment of HER2-positive breast cancer. It mainly relies on the use of monoclonal antibodies and tyrosine-kinase inhibitors. Herein, we present a new strategy, the nano molecularly imprinted polymer (nanoMIP). The nanoMIPs, imprinted using HER2 N-glycans, could bind almost all HER2 glycans and suppress the dimerization of HER2 with other HER family members, blocking the downstream signaling pathways, thereby inhibiting...

The progressive accumulation of senescent cells in tissues in response to damage importantly contributes to pathophysiological conditions such as fibrosis, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's and ageing. Consistent with this, eliminating senescent cells prolongs the lifespan and healthspan in animals and ameliorates certain diseases. Detecting and clearing senescent cells from human tissues could therefore have a significant diagnostic and prognostic impact. However, identifying senescent cells in viv...

The core-shell structure molecularly imprinted magnetic nanospheres towards hypericin (Fe3O4@MIPs) were prepared by mercapto-alkyne click polymerization. The shape and size of nanospheres were characterized by dynamic light scattering (DLS) and transmission electron microscope (TEM). The nanospheres were analyzed by FTIR spectroscopy to verify the thiol-yne click reaction in the presence or absence of hypericin. The Brunauer–Emmet–Teller (BET) method was used for measuring the average pore size,...

We describe the preparation and characterization of synthetic antibodies based on molecularly imprinted polymer nanoparticles (MIP-NPs) for the recognition and binding of the highly conserved and specific peptide motif SWSNKS (3S), an epitope of the envelope glycoprotein 41 (gp41) of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1). This motif is implicated in the decline of CD4+ T cells and leads to the deterioration of the immune system during HIV infection. Therefore, the development of MIP-NPs th...

Abstract It is the goal for the development of cancer target chemotherapy with specific recognition, efficient killing the tumor cells and tissues to avoid the intolerable side effects. Molecular imprinted polymer (MIPs) nanoparticles could introduce kinds of specific bio-markers (template molecules) into the nanoparticles with the subsequent removal, leaving special holes in the structure with predictable recognition specificity with cells. Herein, we design and synthesize a kind of sialic acid...

Bispecific antibodies (BsAbs) are antibodies with two different paratopes. In the past decade, advances in protein engineering have enabled the development of more than 100 formats of BsAbs. With two BsAbs approved for therapeutic use and more than 60 in clinical trials, this research area has shifted from being effervescent to being a mainstream therapeutic development topic. In parallel, recent progress in protein conjugation and cytotoxicity of small molecule drugs has resulted in a boom in m...

Abstract Antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) have the potential to alter the efficacy: toxicity ratio of cytotoxic therapy utilizing surface markers on cancer cells as antibody targets to preferentially deliver toxic payloads to tumor cells while limiting systemic toxicity. Multiple ADCs, differing in their antibody targets, cytotoxic payloads and linker molecules are currently being evaluated in non-small-cell lung cancer, small-cell lung cancer and malignant pleural mesothelioma. Here we review th...

Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have now earned the reputation as “artificial receptors” or “plastic antibodies”. As the mimics of natural receptors, MIPs are reminiscent of some basic functions of natural receptors in living systems, e.g., the ability to interact with or recognize cells. The latest decade has witnessed a great advance in MIPs from simple molecular extraction to efficient cell recognition, implying that MIP-based synthetic receptors are approaching to be perfectly function...

Molecular imprinting (MI) is a technique that creates a template of a molecule for improving complementary binding sites in terms of size and shape to a peptide, protein, bacteria, mammalian cell, or virus on soft materials (such as polymers, hydrogels, or self-assembled materials). MI has been widely investigated for over 90 years in various industries but is now focused on improved tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, drug delivery, sensors, diagnostics, therapeutics and other medical ap...

Abstract null null New molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) for the recognition of barbiturates were synthesised by “bulk” polymerisation. These polymers were prepared using pentobarbital as the template in combination with a novel Hamilton receptor functional monomer. The solution binding properties of the monomer were assessed by NMR titration experiments, showing high affinity for barbiturates and lower affinity for related compounds lacking the ability to form as many hydrogen bonds. The pr...

Abstract In this work, we present a new technique for the sensitive and facile detection of Saccharomyces strains with a detection limit of 30 cells/ml in both buffer solution and food samples such as beer and yoghurt. This is achieved by combining ultrathin surface-imprinted polymer (SIP) layers as receptors with impedance spectroscopy as the readout principle. Binding of cells to the imprinted polymer surface results in a concentration-dependent increase of the impedance signal. According to t...

Abstract null null A simple, selective, and sensitive method involving a miniaturized solid phase extraction step based on a monolithic molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) directly coupled on-line to UV detection was developed for the determination of benzoylecgonine (BZE) in complex biological samples. Monolithic MIPs were prepared into 100 μm internal diameter fused-silica capillaries either by thermal or photopolymerization. While leading to similar selectivities with respect to BZE, photopol...
