Nanotube Coating Meshes with Living Cells

Abstract:
Using a polymer coating that mimics part of a cellís outer membrane, a team of investigators at the University of California, Berkeley, have developed a versatile method for targeting carbon nanotubes to specific types of cells. This new coating could spur the development of new anticancer agents that rely on the unique physical characteristics of carbon nanotubes.
