Carbon nanotube absorption measured in worms, cancer cells

... cancer cells called HeLa cells, and also measured nanotube uptake in an earthworm and an aquatic type of worm. The findings were presented Sunday at the 231st American Chemical Society National Meeting in Atlanta. Co-authors of the presentation are graduate student Elijah Petersen and postdoctoral research...

Nanoparticles, nanoshells, nanotubes: How tiny specks may provide powerful tools against cancer

...(IGF1R) of the cancer cell and are attached to the nanotube ?bind to the cancer cell surface, they produce a specific change in the electrical conductivity," Panchapakesan explains. The scientists found a "spike" in current with the MCF7 cells because it correlated with the greater IGF1R expression. "The t...

'Gadonanotubes' greatly outperform existing MRI contrast agents

... Lon Wilson, professor of chemistry at Rice. "Each nanotube will hold more gadolinium atoms than a buckyball, so we expected them to be more effective agents. But they are actually much, much better than we anticipated, so much so that no existing theory can explain how they work." Wilson and colleagues use ...
