Abstract

We report switchable, fluorescent carbohydrate nanofibers formed through the self-assembly of aromatic rod amphiphiles with a combination of mannose epitopes and thermoresponsive oligoether dendrons. The carbohydrate nanofibers undergo reversible switching between carbohydrate-exposed and hidden states on their surface in response to a thermal signal, and have the ability to regulate cell proliferation.
