Green tea-reduced graphene oxide (GT-rGO) sheets have been exploited for high efficiency near infrared (NIR) photothermal therapy of HT29 and SW48 colon cancer cells. The biocompatibility of GT-rGO sheets was investigated by means of MTT assays. The polyphenol constituents of GT-rGO act as effective targeting ligands for the attachment of rGO to the surface(More)
Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) are multipotent cells appropriate for a variety of tissue engineering and cell therapy applications. Mechanical properties of hMSCs during differentiation are associated with their particular metabolic activity and regulate cell function due to alternations in cytoskeleton and structural elements. The objective of this(More)
A new strategy for the synthesis of thiolated carboxymethyl chitosan-g-cyclodextrin nanoparticles by an ionic-gelation method is presented. The synthetic approach was based on the utilization of 1,6-hexamethylene diisocyanate during cyclodextrin grafting onto carboxymethyl chitosan. The use of the 1,6-hexamethylene diisocyanate resulted in reactions between(More)
Abstract Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) are capable of self-renewal and differentiation into various cell lineages. Mechanical stimuli have been shown to regulate function of stem cells through alteration in morphology and structure. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare effects of uniaxial static stretch and combined static-dynamic(More)
Detection of rare metastatic cells within a benign tumor is a key challenge to diagnose the cancerous stage of the patients tested by clinical human biopsy or pap smear samples. We have fabricated and tested a nanograssed silicon based bioelectronic device with the ability of detecting a few human colon invasive cancer cells (SW48) in a mixed cell culture(More)
A novel vertically aligned carbon nanotube based electrical cell impedance sensing biosensor (CNT-ECIS) was demonstrated for the first time as a more rapid, sensitive and specific device for the detection of cancer cells. This biosensor is based on the fast entrapment of cancer cells on vertically aligned carbon nanotube arrays and leads to mechanical and(More)
Biomechanical properties of cancer cells have been proposed as promising biomarkers to investigate cancer progression. Cytoskeletal reorganization alters these characteristics in different grades of cancer cells. In the present study based on the micropipette aspiration method, whole body evaluation for two different colon cancer cells was performed to(More)
We developed a silicon nanowire based electrical cell impedance sensor (SiNW-ECIS) as an instrument that detects cancerous cultured living lung cells by monitoring their spreading state at which the cells stretched and become extended on nanowires. Further current penetration into the extended membrane of malignant cells in respect to normal ones (In the(More)
Alteration in specific inertial conditions can lead to changes in morphology, proliferation, mechanical properties and cytoskeleton of cells. In this report, the effects of hypergravity on morphology of Adipose-Derived Stem Cells (ADSCs) are indicated. ADSCs were repeatedly exposed to discontinuous hypergravity conditions of 10 g, 20 g, 40 g and 60 g by(More)
Acoustophoresis with its simple and low-cost fabrication, rapid and localized fluid actuation, compatibility with microfluidic components, and biocompatibility for cellular studies, has been extensively integrated into microfluidics to provide on-chip microdevices for a variety of applications in biology, bioengineering and chemistry.
