Artificial Cells-in-Cells Triggered by Light Act as Mini Chemical Reactors

Cartoon of UV-responsive nested vesicle mechanism. Photo-responsive vesicles and the enzyme β-galactosidase are co-encapsulated within POPC GUVs created via phase-transfer. Upon illumination with UV-C, photopolymerisation of the inner compartment membranes results in FDG release, leading to its catalysis by β-galactosidase forming free fluorescein.
