Hybrid Nanostructure Programmed to Fluoresce

Abstract:
Combining brightly fluorescent quantum dots with gold nanoparticles using a linker that can allow the two nanomaterials to go their separate ways, researchers at Rice University's Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology have developed a "smart" beacon that is programmed to light up only when activated by specific enzymes known as proteases. Altered expression of particular proteases is a common hallmark of cancer, atherosclerosis, and many other diseases.
