Quantum dots affect expression of CD133 surface antigen in melanoma cells


BACKGROUND In novel treatment approaches, therapeutics should be designed to target cancer stem cells (CSCs). Quantum dots (QDs) are a promising new tool in fighting against cancer. However, little is known about accumulation and cytotoxicity of QDs in CSCs. METHODS Accumulation and cytotoxicity of CdTe-MPA (mercaptopropionic acid) QDs in CSCs were… (More)
