Human Cancer Cells Take In Targeted Magnetic Nanoparticles

Abstract:
Miqin Zhang and her colleagues at the University of Washington in Seattle describe the chemical techniques they use to attach just over 400 molecules of methotrexate to each 10-nanometer diameter iron oxide nanoparticle. Their method uses a linking molecule that will only release methotrexate from the nanoparticle when a specific enzyme, only found inside cells, is present.
