While few publications have documented the uptake of nanoparticles in plants, this is the first study describing uptake and distribution of the ultrasmall anatase TiO(2) in the plant model system Arabidopsis. We modified the nanoparticle surface with Alizarin red S and sucrose and demonstrated that nanoconjugates traversed cell walls, entered into plant(More)
UNLABELLED Nanotechnology has introduced many exciting new tools for the treatment of human diseases. One of the obstacles in its application to that end is the lack of a fundamental understanding of the interaction that occurs between nanoparticles and living cells. This report describes the quantitative analysis of the kinetics and endocytic pathways(More)
Resistance to anthracyclines and other chemotherapeutics due to P-glycoprotein (pgp)-mediated export is a frequent problem in cancer treatment. Here, we report that iron oxide-titanium dioxide core-shell nanocomposites can serve as efficient carriers for doxorubicin to overcome this common mechanism of drug resistance in cancer cells. Doxorubicin(More)
The syntheses, radiolabeling, antibody conjugation and in vivo evaluation of new linkers for (211)At labeling of monoclonal antibodies are described. Syntheses of the N-succinimidyl esters and labeling with (211)At to form succinimidyl 4-methoxymethyl-3-[(211)At]astatobenzoate (9) and succinimidyl 4-methylthiomethyl-3-[(211)At]astatobenzoate (11) from the(More)
Novel ligands cis-2,6-bis[N,N-bis(carboxymethyl)aminomethyl]-1-piperidineacetic acid (PIP-DTPA), cis-[(1R,11S)-6,9,15-Tris-carboxymethyl-3,6,9,15-tetraazabicyclo[9.3.1]pentadec-3-yl]-acetic acid (PIP-DOTA), cis-{2,7-bis-[bis-carboxymethyl-amino)-methyl]-azepan-1-yl}-acetic acid (AZEP-DTPA),(More)
We are developing TiO2 nanoconjugates that can be used as therapeutic and diagnostic agents. Nanoscale TiO2 can be surface conjugated with various molecules and has the unique ability to induce the production of reactive oxygen species after radiation activation. One way to improve the potential clinical usefulness of TiO2 nanoparticles is to control their(More)
