The mucin MUC1 is a glycoprotein involved in fundamental biological processes, which can be found over-expressed and with a distinctly altered glycan pattern on epithelial tumor cells; thus it is a promising target structure in the quest for effective carbohydrate-based cancer vaccines and immunotherapeutics. Natural glycopeptide antigens indicate only a(More)
The photoluminescence (PL) of semiconductor nanoparticles (SNP) is strongly modified when the semiconductor is in the proximity of a metal surface or a metal nanoparticle (MNP). The effect may be due to two different phenomena which are (a) (Förster) resonant energy transfer ((F)RET) between the semiconductor and the metal and (b) the enhanced electric(More)
