Membrane vesicles have potential applications in nanotechnology

Bacillus subtilis

Many bacteria release membrane vesicles, which are nanoscale spheres consisting of a cellular membrane containing various biomolecules. Membrane vesicles can transport DNA and proteins, and are involved in bacterial interactions. They have potential applications in nanotechnology and biomedicine; e.g., in cancer treatment. However, the formation of membrane vesicles by bacteria …

Sensor with exceptional performance for detecting nanoparticles

Nanodetector

Researchers have developed a sensor with exceptional performance for detecting nanoparticles. It’s long been thought that two’s company and three’s a crowd. But electrical and systems engineers at Washington University in St. Louis and their collaborators have shown that the addition of a third nanoscatterer, complementing two “tuning” nanoscatterers, to …
