Scientists at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences and Arizona State UniversityArizona State University have demonstrated that their DNA nanorobots effectively deliver thrombin to tumor-associated blood vessels in mice and Bama miniature pigs. Their nanobot is functionalized with a DNA aptamer that binds nucleolin, a protein that is expressed on the target tissue, tumor-associated endothelial cells and triggers the release of the drug thrombin, housed inside the nanobot cavity.
