Syntheses and characterizations of biocompatible superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles with embedded curcumin and coated with ultrathin layer of hyaluronic acid-curcumin (HA-Cur) conjugate have been reported. Zeta potential measurements confirmed effective coating of native iron oxide nanoparticles stabilized by cationic derivative of chitosan(More)
The impact of hyperglycemia on adhesion between lung carcinoma cells (A549) and pulmonary human aorta endothelial cells (PHAEC) was studied using the single-cell force spectroscopy. Cancer cells were immobilized on a tipless Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) cantilever and a single layer of endothelial cells was prepared on a glass slide. The measured(More)
Mechanotransduction is one of the main properties of endothelial cells (ECs) phenotype. Hemodynamic forces like flow-generated endothelial shear stress play a fundamental role in ECs cytoskeletal remodeling and activate signaling cascades in ECs. AFM methods are widely used to characterize morphology as well as mechanical properties of cells. In both cases(More)
A review of recent experimental investigations on the nanomechanical response of individual endothelial cells to inflammation caused by environmental agents and selected chemical compounds is presented. We focus on the results obtained by means of the force spectroscopy using the tip of an atomic force microscope as an imaging and nanoindentation(More)
