A practical, biologically motivated case of protein complexes (immunoglobulin G and FcRII receptors) moving on the surface of mastcells, that are common parts of an immunological system, is investigated. Proteins are considered as nanomachines creating a nanonetwork. Accurate molecular models of the proteins and the fluorophores which act as their nanoantennas are used to simulate the communication between the nanomachines when they are close to each other. The theory of diffusion-based…

Nanonetworks refer to a group of nanosized machines with very basic operational capabilities communicating to each other in order to accomplish more complex tasks such as in-body drug delivery, or
Nanocommunication via FRET With DyLight Dyes Using Multiple Donors and Acceptors
DyLight fluorescent dyes, which are very well suited to long range nanocommunication due to their large Förster distances and high degrees of labeling, are proposed and the reported results of the recent laboratory experiments confirm efficient communication on distances over 10 nm.
Measurements on MIMO-FRET Nano-Networks Based on Alexa Fluor Dyes
This paper proposes to use Alexa Fluor dyes as nano transmitters and receivers, as they enable to create multiple-input multioutput (MIMO) FRET communication channels and thus enhance FRET efficiency.
Fluorescent Molecules as Transceiver Nanoantennas: The First Practical and High-Rate Information Transfer over a Nanoscale Communication Channel based on FRET
The performance of the FRET-based Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output nanocommunication channel between closely located mobile nanoantennas in the sample solution is evaluated and results are very promising for the development of high-rate and reliable molecular communication networks at nanoscale.

In this study, a novel and physically realizable nanoscale communication paradigm is introduced based on a well-known phenomenon, Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET), for the first time in the
Molecular communication options for long range nanonetworks
Different techniques are proposed to enable the long range interconnection of nano-machines, deployed over distances from a few centimeters up to several meters, according to whether a fixed physical link is required for signal propagation or not, i.e., either wired or wireless communication.

This study proposes a novel nanoscale communication method based on multi-step FRET using identical fluorophores as relay nodes between communicating nanomachines, and utilizing multi-exciton transmission scheme in order to improve the limited range of the communication and achievable transmission rate over the nanoscales channel.
Molecular Communication: Index
Key research challenges include controlled propagation of carrier molecules, encoding/ decoding of information onto information molecules, and transmission/reception systems for carrier/information molecules.
Slow rotational mobilities of antibodies and lipids associated with substrate-supported phospholipid monolayers as measured by polarized fluorescence photobleaching recovery.
Polarized fluorescence photobleaching recovery has been used to monitor slow rotational motions of a fluorescently-labeled anti-dinitrophenyl mouse IgGl monoclonal antibody (ANO2), and steady-state fluorescence anisotropy data confirmed the expected result that the ANO2-conjugated bifunctional probe had less independent flexibility.
Opportunistic networking: data forwarding in disconnected mobile ad hoc networks
The most interesting case studies related to opportunistic networking are surveyed and a taxonomy for the main routing and forwarding approaches in this challenging environment is discussed and organized.
