Gold Nanoparticles Easily Penetrate Cells for Drug Delivery Applications
Added Jul 22, 2014 | Rate View top rated
A new study from MIT materials scientists reveals that a special class of tiny gold particles can easily slip through cell membranes, making them good candidates to deliver drugs directly to target cells. These nanoparticles enter the cells by taking advantage of a route normally used in vesicle-vesicle fusion, a crucial process that allows signal transmission between neurons.
