Zebrafish embryos help prove what happens to nanoparticles in the blood

What happens to the nanoparticles when they are injected into the bloodstream, for example, to destroy solid tumours? Hossein Mohammad-Beigi, Duncan Sutherland, and Thomas Boesen have collaborated with colleagues from Department of Molecular Biology & Genetics on tackling such a challenging question using zebrafish embryos as a new study model in…

A Danish research team shows in Nature Communications how they have developed a new approach for faster, though more in-depth studies of corona proteins, which affect the functional role of nanoparticles.

AU researchers contribute to understanding corona proteins on nanoparticles

The properties of nanoparticles are widely acknowledged and they are an important tool in pharmaceutical applications, among others. However, there is a need for deeper understanding of the protein layers accumulating on their surface, as these protein layers affect the functional role of the nanoparticles. AU researchers have developed a method…

A Danish research team describes in an article in Nature Communications how a well-described circular RNA molecule, which was thought to be carcinogenic, is not found in the cancer cells after all.
