Recent Biotechnological Applications of Glyco-Nanomaterials

Abstract:

Thanks to the chemically tunable sizes and physical (e.g. electronic, photonic and magnetic) properties, nanomaterials are recently being applied as imaging agents or spectroscopic tools to monitor cellular or biological systems. However, unfunctionalized nanomaterials have a perceived, potential risk of cytotoxicity and a typical lack of cell-specific function. Given the distinct roles of glycans in nature, aqueous solubility/dispersability, biocompatibility, and as endogenous ligands, the p...
