  • Metallic and superparamagnetic DNA-templated nanoparticle (NP) chains are examined as potential imaging agents. Proton relaxation times (T(1) and T(2)) are measured for DNA nanostructures using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. The layer-by-layer (LBL) method was used to encapsulate the DNA-templated NP chains and demonstrated a change in proton relaxation times. Results from this study suggest that LBL-coated, DNA-templated nanostructures can serve as effective imaging agents for… CONTINUE READING
