A systematic study of water-soluble gold nanoparticles stabilized by triphenylphosphine derivatives ranging in size from 0.8 to 15 nm is made and the cytotoxicity of these particles in four cell lines representing major functional cell types with barrier and phagocyte function are tested.

Enhancement of radiation cytotoxicity in breast-cancer cells by localized attachment of gold nanoparticles.

Transmission electron microscopy results show that cancer cells take up functional Glu-GNPs significantly more than naked GNPs, and in vitro cytotoxicity effects of GNPs significantly enhance cancer killing.

Size‐Dependent Endocytosis of Nanoparticles

A thermodynamic model for receptor-mediated endocytosis of ligand-coated NPs is presented, and an optimal NP radius is identified at which the cellular uptake reaches a maximum of several thousand at physiologically relevant parameters, and it is shown that the cell uptake is regulated by membrane tension, and can be elaborately controlled by particle size.

Enhanced x-ray irradiation-induced cancer cell damage by gold nanoparticles treated by a new synthesis method of polyethylene glycol modification

Standard tests indicated that the internalized particles are highly biocompatible but strongly enhance the cell damage induced by x-ray irradiation, and the appearance of C = O stretching bond spectral features could be used as a marker for cell damage and confirmed the enhancement of the radiation-induced toxicity for cells.

Nanoparticle-mediated cellular response is size-dependent.

It is shown that gold and silver nanoparticles coated with antibodies can regulate the process of membrane receptor internalization and show that nanoparticles should no longer be viewed as simple carriers for biomedical applications, but can also play an active role in mediating biological effects.

Cellular uptake and fate of PEGylated gold nanoparticles is dependent on both cell-penetration peptides and particle size.

Findings show that AuNP cellular uptake is directly dependent on the surface display of the cell-penetrating peptide and that the ultimate intracellular destination is further determined by AuNP diameter.
