    Feel the heat: The dynamic macromolecular helical structure of a poly(phenylacetylene) can be used to alter the thermoresponsive properties of an elastin-based side-chain polymer. The polymeric helical conformation changes the expected lower critical solution temperature thermoresponsiveness to an upper critical solution temperature behavior.

    A thermoresponsive nanogel formed by linear thermoresponsive polyglycerol and magnetic nanoparticles is evaluated as a magnetic trap for circulating tumor cells. Transferrin is employed as targeting moiety. It is shown that the longitude of the linker used in the protein to nanogel ligation has a big impact on the cell sorting properties.
