Nano World: Nanotubes as drug-delivery vehicles

Abstract:
Charles Q. Choi: Bottling proteins in nanotubes may cause them to unfold, which may drive researchers exploring nanotubes as drug-delivery vehicles to rethink their strategies, experts told UPI's Nano World.

These findings could have greater implications when it comes to our understanding of how proteins are assembled by nature's own nanotechnology, the organic machinery that synthesizes and folds proteins, added researcher Vijay Pande, a biophysical chemist and structural biologist at Stanford University in California. This could in turn help understand how antibiotics work or how diseases lead to misfolded proteins.
