Chemical Ligands and Methods A5: Protein-specific nanoparticles for cellular uptake

Prof. Dr. Matthias Epple

Since supramolecular ligands as well as certain proteins must ultimately be transported into cells, we will exploit large multishell CaP nanoparticles (100 nm) as transport vehicles across cell membranes. The pathway of the labeled cargo into and inside the cell can be monitored by confocal fluorescence microscopy.
