Nanoparticles act as protein carriers during cellular internalization

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two-colour fluorescence microscopy was used to track the cellular internalization of nanoparticles exposed to extracellular serum proteins. Single particle tracking revealed that nanoparticles and serum proteins are internalized and transported through the cell as a single complex. This study demonstrates the importance of nanoparticle-protein interactions in cellular applications.
