Yoshiko Miura, Controlled Polymerization for the development of bioconjugate polymers and materials, Journal of Materials Chemistry B, 10.1039/C9TB02418B, 2020, 8, 2010-2019, 2020.01, Controlled polymerization through living radical polymerization is widely studied. Controlled polymerization enables synthetic polymers with precise structures, which have the potential for excellent bio-functional materials. This review summarizes the applications of controlled polymers, especially those via living radical polymerization, to biofunctional materials and conjugation with biomolecules. In the case of polymer ligands like glycopolymers, the polymers control the interactions with proteins and cells based on the precise polymer structures. Living radical polymerization enables the conjugation of polymers to proteins, antibodies, nucleic acids and cells. Those polymer conjugations are a sophisticated method to modify bio-organisms. The polymer conjugations expand the potential of biofunctional materials and are useful for understanding biology..

Mater. Interfaces , 10.1021/acsami.1c06447, 13, 25, 30030-30038, ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces 2021, 13, 25, 30030–30038, 2021.06, The development of robust and thin CO2 separation membranes that allow fast and selective permeation of CO2 will be crucial for rebalancing the global carbon cycle. Hydrogels are attractive membrane materials because of their tunable chemical properties and exceptionally high diffusion coefficients for solutes. However, their fragility prevents the fabrication of thin defect-free membranes suitable for gas separation. Here, we report the assembly of defect-free hydrogel nanomembranes for CO2 separation. Such membranes can be prepared by coating an aqueous suspension of colloidal hydrogel microparticles (microgels) onto a flat, rough, or micropatterned porous support as long as the pores are hydrophilic and the pore size is smaller than the diameter of the microgels. The deformability of the microgel particles enables the autonomous assembly of defect-free 30–50 nm-thick membrane layers from deformed ∼15 nm-thick discoidal particles. Microscopic analysis established that the penetration of water into the pores driven by capillary force assists the assembly of a defect-free dense hydrogel layer on the pores. Although the dried films did not show significant CO2 permeance even in the presence of amine groups, the permeance dramatically increased when the membranes are adequately hydrated to form a hydrogel. This result indicated the importance of free water in the membranes to achieve fast diffusion of bicarbonate ions. The hydrogel nanomembranes consisting of amine-containing microgel particles show selective CO2 permeation (850 GPU, αCO2/N2 = 25) against post-combustion gases. Acid-containing microgel membranes doped with amines show highly selective CO2 permeation against post-combustion gases (1010 GPU, αCO2/N2 = 216) and direct air capture (1270 GPU, αCO2/N2 = 2380). The membrane formation mechanism reported in this paper will provide insights into the self-assembly of soft matters. Furthermore, the versatile strategy of fabricating hydrogel nanomembranes by the autonomous assembly of deformable microgels will enable the large-scale manufacturing of high-performance separation membranes, allowing low-cost carbon capture from post-combustion gases and atmospheric air..

Commun., 2021, 57, 10871-10874, 2021.09, The “carbohydrate module method” is a promising approach for oligosaccharide mimetics using polymeric materials. However, it is difficult to predict the optimal structure for a particular oligosaccharide mimetic, and an efficient strategy for the synthesis and evaluation of glycopolymers is desirable. In this study, a screening of glycopolymers for the “carbohydrate module method” by a combination of photoinduced electron/energy transfer-reversible addition–fragmentation chain-transfer (PET-RAFT) polymerization and surface plasmon resonance imaging (SPRI) is demonstrated. The facile and fast screening of synthetic glycomimetics was achieved, and the glycopolymer with the optimal structure as a GM1 mimetic strongly interacted with the cholera toxin B subunit..

Masanori Nagao, Masaya Kichize, Yu Hoshino, Yoshiko Miura, Influence of Monomer Structures for Polymeric Multivalent Ligands: Consideration of the Molecular Mobility of Glycopolymers, Biomacromolecules, 10.1021/acs.biomac.1c00553, 22, 7, 3119-3127, Biomacromolecules 2021, 22, 7, 3119–3127, 2021.06, Molecular mobility is important for interactions of biofunctional polymers with target molecules. Monomer structures for synthetic biofunctional polymers are usually selected based on their compatibility with polymerization systems, whereas the influence of monomer structures on the interaction with target molecules is hardly considered. In this report, we evaluate the correlation between the monomer structures of glycopolymers and their interactions with concanavalin A (ConA) with respect to the molecular mobility. Two types of glycopolymers bearing mannose are synthesized with acrylamide or acrylate monomers. Despite the similar structures, except for amide or ester bonds in the side chains, the acrylate-type glycopolymers exhibit stronger interaction with ConA both in the isothermal titration calorimetry measurement and in a hemagglutination inhibition assay. Characterization of the acrylate-type glycopolymers suggests that the higher binding constant arises from the higher molecular mobility of mannose units, which results from the rotational freedom of ester bonds in their side chains..

Yuri Kimoto, Yuhei Terada, Yu Hoshino, Yoshiko Miura, Screening of a Glycopolymer Library of GM1 Mimics Containing Hydrophobic Units Using Surface Plasmon Resonance Imaging, ACS Omega, 10.1021/acsomega.9b02877, 4, 24, 20690-20696, 2019, 4, 24, 20690-20696., 2019.11, Effective screening methods for the development of glycopolymers as molecular recognition materials are desirable for the discovery of novel biofunctional materials. A glycopolymer library was prepared to obtain guidelines for the design of glycopolymers for the recognition of cholera toxin B subunits (CTB). Glycopolymers with varying ratios of hydrophobic and sugar units were synthesized by reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer polymerization. N-tert-Butylacrylamide, N-phenylacrylamide, and N-cyclohexylacrylamide as hydrophobic units were copolymerized in the polymer backbone, and galactose, which contributes to CTB recognition, was introduced into the side chains by "post-click" chemistry. The thiol-terminated glycopolymers were immobilized on a gold surface. The polymer immobilization substrate was analyzed in terms of interaction with galactose recognition proteins (CTB, peanut agglutinin, and Ricinus communis agglutinin I) using surface plasmon resonance imaging. The polymers with high ratios of sugar and hydrophobic units had the strongest interactions with the CTB, which was different from the trend with peanut agglutinin and Ricinus communis agglutinin I. The binding constant of the CTB with the glycopolymer with hydrophobic units was 4.1 × 106 M-1, which was approximately eight times larger than that of the polymer without hydrophobic units. A correlation was observed between the log P value and the binding constant, indicating that the hydrophobic interaction played an important role in binding. New guidelines for the design of recognition materials were obtained by our screening method..

Takahiro Oh, Kazuki Jono, Yuri Kimoto, Yu Hoshino, Yoshiko Miura, Preparation of multifunctional glycopolymers using double orthogonal reactions and the effect of electrostatic groups on the glycopolymer–lectin interaction, Polymer Journal, 10.1038/s41428-019-0244-x, 51, 12, 1299-1308, 2019, 51,12,1299-1308, 2019.08, We investigated synthetic biomacromolecules to control molecular interactions. Multifunctional glycopolymers for molecular recognition were prepared via living radical polymerization and post-click chemistry with orthogonal Huisgen and thiol-epoxy reactions. The synthesis of the polymer backbone and the subsequent side-chain introduction successfully proceeded in high yield. The multifunctional glycopolymers had a tri-block structure: the first and third blocks contained mannose, and the second block contained either a positively or negatively charged group or a neutral hydrophilic group. The molecular recognition of the glycopolymers toward lectin was evaluated via fluorescence quenching measurements. Because of the electrostatic interaction, the binding constant varied in the following order: positively charged glycopolymer (PT110) > negatively charged glycopolymer (NT110). The effect of the electrostatic interactions was modest compared with the effect of the carbohydrate–lectin binding. These results suggested that the carbohydrate–lectin interaction was an important factor in the molecular recognition of glycopolymers. This study provides guidelines for the preparation of multifunctional polymers, such as biomaterials..
8. Yu Hoshino, Shohei Taniguchi, Hinata Takimoto, Sotaro Akashi, Sho Katakami, Yusuke Yonamine, Yoshiko Miura, Homogeneous Oligomeric Ligands Prepared via Radical Polymerization that Recognize and Neutralize a Target Peptide, Angewandte Chemie - International Edition, 10.1002/anie.201910558, 59, 2, 679-683, 2020, 132,2,689-693., 2020.01, Abiotic ligands that bind to specific biomolecules have attracted attention as substitutes for biomolecular ligands, such as antibodies and aptamers. Radical polymerization enables the production of robust polymeric ligands from inexpensive functional monomers. However, little has been reported about the production of monodispersed polymeric ligands. Herein, we present homogeneous ligands prepared via radical polymerization that recognize epitope sequences on a target peptide and neutralize the toxicity of the peptide. Taking advantage of controlled radical polymerization and separation, a library of multifunctional oligomers with discrete numbers of functional groups was prepared. Affinity screening revealed that the sequence specificity of the oligomer ligands strongly depended on the number of functional groups. The process reported here will become a general step for the development of abiotic ligands that recognize specific peptide sequences..

We report the topological design of glyco-ligands based on synthetic polymers for targeting hemagglutinin (HA, lectin on the influenza virus). To achieve precise arrangement of the glycounits toward the sugar-binding pockets of HA, triarm star glycopolymers were synthesized. The interaction of the star glycopolymers with HA was found to depend on the length of the polymer arms and was maximized when the hydrodynamic diameter of the star glycopolymer was comparable to the distance between the sugar-binding pockets of HA. Following the formula of multivalent interaction, the number of binding sites in the interaction of the glycopolymers with HA was estimated as 1.8–2.7. Considering one HA molecule has three sugar-binding pockets, these values were reasonable. The binding mode of synthetic glycopolymer–ligands toward lectins could be tuned using controlled radical polymerization techniques..

Adhered bacteria coverage was lessened to 1% on polymer-coated surfaces when exposed to Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus epidermidis, and Streptococcus mutans. Moreover, PEGMA500-Phosmer and homoPhosmer coatings presented better responses to MC3T3-E1 preosteoblast cells when compared with the results for PEGMA2000-Phosmer-coated and raw Ti alloy surfaces. The behavior of balancing bacterial inhibition and cell attraction of the PEGMA500-Phosmer coating was explained by the grafted phosphate groups, with an appropriate PEG brush length facilitating greater levels of calcium deposition and further fibronectin adsorption when compared with that of the raw Ti alloy surface..

However, they often suffer from high cost, and difficulties in their development, production and storage. Here we show that a synthetic polymer nanoparticle (NP) can be engineered to have many of the functions of a protein affinity reagent. Polymer NPs with nM affinity to a key vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF165) inhibit binding of the signalling protein to its receptor VEGFR-2, preventing receptor phosphorylation and downstream VEGF165-dependent endothelial cell migration and invasion into the extracellular matrix. In addition, the NPs inhibit VEGF-mediated new blood vessel formation in Matrigel plugs in vivo. Importantly, the non-toxic NPs were not found to exhibit off-target activity. These results support the assertion that synthetic polymers offer a new paradigm in the search for abiotic protein affinity reagents by providing many of the functions of their protein counterparts..

To investigate the multivalent effect, the use of multivalent compounds or “glycoclusters” is indispensable, and many groups have reported syntheses of glycocluster compounds. Examples of glycoclusters include liposomes with glycolipids, glycocalixarenes, glycocyclodextrins, glycopeptides, and glycopolymers. Among the various synthetic glycoclusters, glycopolymers have been the subject of much attention . In this review, we define glycopolymers as polymers carrying pendant saccharides. Since glycopolymers have larger valencies than other multivalent compounds, they show the largest amplification effects in molecular recognition. Glycopolymers are able to be prepared as nanomaterials by controlled polymerization. In this section of the review, we discuss glycopolymers and their application for biotechnology..

Sci. Eng, 10.1021/acsbiomaterials.5b00349, 2, 2, 205-212, 2016.02, Modification of the interface properties on hydroxyapatite and tooth enamel surfaces was investigated to fabricate bacterial resistance in situ. A series of copolymers containing pendants of poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate (PEGMA) and ethylene glycol methacrylate phosphate (Phosmer) were polymerized by conventional free radical polymerization and changing the feed ratio of monomers. The copolymers were immobilized on hydroxyapatite and tooth enamel via the affinity of phosphate groups to hydroxyapatite to form the stable and durable polymer brushes on the surfaces. The amounts of polymer immobilized depended on the phosphate group ratio in the copolymers. Surface modification altered the interfacial properties of hydroxyapatite and inhibited bacterial adhesion. Copolymers containing 40–60% PEGMA segments showed a significant inhibitory effect on bacterial adhesion of S. epidermidis both in the presence and absence of plaque model biomacromolecules..

Immobilization of the trimethoxysilane-containing copolymer on the matrices was readily performed by incubation at high heat. The recognition of lectin by poly(Man-r-TMS) was evaluated by measurement with a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) and adsorption on an affinity membrane, QCM results showed that the mannose-binding protein, concanavalin A, was specifically bound on a poly(Man-r-TMS)-immobilized cell with a higher binding constant than bovine serum albumin. The amount of concanavalin A adsorbed during permeation through a poly(Man-r-TMS)-immobilized membrane was higher than that through an unmodified membrane. Moreover, the concanavalin A adsorbed onto the poly(Man-r-TMS)-immobilized membrane was recoverable by permeation of a mannose derivative at high concentration..
