Tools & Techniques: Gold Nanoparticles for siRNA Delivery; Improved microRNA Extraction; and More | GenomeWeb

A multi-institute team of Spanish and German researchers has developed functionalized gold nanoparticles capable of delivering siRNAs specifically into cancer cells in vivo.

To date, a number of groups have used such nanoparticles as efficient, non-toxic carriers for siRNAs, yet the majority of these have only been tested in cell cultures against reporter genes, the investigators wrote in Biomaterials.
