A manganese–ferritin nanocomposite as an ultrasensitive T2 contrast agent

Author affiliations

Abstract

T 2 contrast is gaining importance in high field strength MRI. We report a strategy for developing a T2 contrast agent from paramagnetic metal ions synthesized within an engineered protein cage. The manganese–ferritin nanocomposite showed high T2 relaxivity indicating its potential as an ultrasensitive T2 contrast agent.
