Connecting artificial protein cages

Artificial protein cages are exciting structures because they can be designed to carry cargoes such as therapeutics to treat disease. The outside of cages can also be modified so that they can display targeting molecules or antigens meaning that artificial cages can be used as designer vaccines. Meanwhile, connections between the subunits of artificial protein cages can be modified to allow programmable assembly and disassembly. It’s so exciting we decided to write a review on the topic! Access the paper here
