Barrera Lab Publishes in JACS

The lab of Dr. Fran Barrera in a collaboration led by the Best lab in the chemistry department has published ATP-Responsive Liposomes via Screening of Lipid Switches Designed to Undergo Conformational Changes upon Binding Phosphorylated Metabolites in the prestigious journal, Journal of the American Chemical Society. Experiments conducted by GST graduate student, Jennifer Schuster in the Barrera lab, demonstrated that changes in cytoplasmic calcium can be used for selective delivery into human cells of cargo encapsulated in ATP-responsive liposomes.
