Abstract:Nanoparticle (NP)-mediated therapies are promising tools for the treatment of a wide range of diseases, including stroke and cancer, due to the outstanding performance they have shown for specifically targeting diseased sites. Importantly, the coupling of stiffness and shape of NPs has a significant influence on transportation via blood flow and internalization by targeted cells. Nevertheless, the underlying mechanism of this coupling effect on the endocytosis of NPs remains largely unexplored, resulting from … Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
