Functional gold nanoclusters as antimicrobial agents for antibiotic-resistant bacteria.


AIMS Our aim was to demonstrate that lysozyme-directed generation of gold nanoclusters (Au NCs) are potential antimicrobial agents for antibiotic-resistant bacteria and broad labeling agents for pathogenic bacteria. MATERIALS & METHODS Lysozyme is an enzyme that is capable of hydrolyzing the cell walls of bacteria. In this study, we demonstrated the… (More)
