Nano-Probes Allow an Inside Look at Cell Nuclei
...le a trick from a virus's playbook to smuggle this nanocrystal
past the highly selective membrane that guards the entrance into the nucleus. In nature, a virus called SV40 is coated with a protein that binds to a cell's nuclear trafficking mechanism, a ploy that gives the virus an unhindered ride inside the nucl...
Bioelectronic ‘signatures?hold key to DNA mutations
... novelty of the approach is the combination of the nanocrystal
tagging of DNA to create electro-diverse signature...DNA bases; these DNA bases ?each carrying a single nanocrystal
?bind to a DNA sample and cause minute electrical current changes in the nanocrystal
that can be mea...
Cellulose nanocrystal research could lead to new vaccines, computer inks
Maren Roman is taking nanocrystal
research to a new level that may lead to a new generation of vaccines and better computer printer ink. The assistant professor in the wood science and forest products department of the College of Natural Resources at Virginia Tech will be deliverin...
No carrier necessary: This drug delivers itself
...emonstrate no difference in drug activity with the nanocrystal
formulation,?said Ravindra Pandey, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Biophysical Sciences at RPCI and a co-author on the paper. “This is a case where the easiest formulation works the best,?added Indrajit Roy, Ph.D., UB research assistant profess...
