Multifunctional fluorescent carbon dot inhibits the invasiveness of lung cancer cells

Abstract

A new type of carbon dots (CDs) is proposed, which have great potential to be an excellent fluorescence probe for bioimaging in vivo. Additionally, the CDs can suppress the proliferation, migration and invasion of lung cancer cells by downregulating the protein expression of matrix metalloproteinase-2/9 and the activity of MMP-2.
