Abstract

In situ and cytocompatible nanoswitching by external stimuli is highly appealing for reversibly regulating cellular adhesion and functions in vivo. Here, a heterodimeric nanoswitch is designed to facilitate in situ switchable and combinatorial presentation of integrin-binding cell-adhesive moieties, such as Mg2+ and Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) ligand in nanostructures. In situ reversible nanoswitching is controlled by convertible coordination between bioactive Mg2+ and bisphosphonate (BP) ligand. A BP-coated gold-nanoparticle monomer (BP-AuNP) on a substrate is prepared to allow in situ assembly of cell-adhesive Mg2+-active Mg-BP nanoparticles (NPs) on a BP-AuNP surface via Mg2+-BP coordination, yielding heterodimeric nanostructures (switching “ON”). Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA)-based Mg2+ chelation allows in situ disassembly of Mg2+-BP NP, reverting to Mg2+-free monomer (switching “OFF”). This in situ reversible nanoswitching on and off of cell-adhesive Mg2+ presentation allows reversible cell adhesion and release in vivo, respectively, and spatiotemporally controls cyclic cell adhesion. In situ heterodimeric assembly of dual RGD ligand- and Mg2+-active RGD-BP-Mg2+ NP (switching “Dual ON”) further tunes and promotes focal adhesion, spreading, and differentiation of stem cells. The modular nature of this in situ nanoswitch can accommodate various bioactive nanostructures via metal-ion–ligand coordination to regulate diverse cellular functions in vivo in reversible and compatible manner.
