Measurement of spreading depolarization in Drosophila melanogaster. After immobilizing the fly, a reference electrode is inserted into the abdomen (bottom) and two glass microelectrodes (from left and right) are inserted into its brain. With one electrode we monitored the electrical activity of the brain during cooling and with the other the K+ concentration in the extracellular fluid in the brain. Spreading depolarization is characterized by an abrupt drop in electrical activity and a surge in extracellular K+ concentration and this occurs at the temperature where these insects go into coma.

APD-CLDs selectively disrupts mitochondria under low oxygen levels. The image illustrates how the APD-CLDs can inactivate mitochondria when the oxygen concentration is low. The red color in the left image accumulates in active mitochondria under normal oxygen concentration (21%) where the natural products remain inactive and the mitochondria healthy. To the right the APD-CLDs have been activated by the low oxygen concentration and the mitochondria has lost their activity.

Schematic representation of the proposed multifunctional nanostructure. The system consists of four modules carrying either multiple identical or different functional molecules, for instance a polymer for prolonging the circulation time in the blood stream, a targeting ligand for binding to specific disease-related receptors, an imaging agent for diagnostics and a bioactive drug.
