Nanoparticle Spots Growing Blood Vessels

Abstract:
Reporting its work in FASEB Journal, a team headed by Willem Mulder, Ph.D., of Eindhoven University of Technology, had developed a liposome containing gadolinium and rhodamine. Gadolinium acts to enhance an MRI signal, while rhodamine is a common fluorescent marker. The investigators also incorporated into the outer surface of the liposome a molecule known as RGD, which binds to the protein αvβ3, a highly specific marker for newly activated blood vessel cells that are just beginning to grow.
