One such application is the cell motility assay developed by Alivisatos and colleagues [109–111], in which the migration of cells over a homogeneous layer of QDs was measured in real time. 7). By subsequently determining the ratio of cell area to fluorescence-free track area, it was possible to differentiate between invasive and noninvasive cancer cells. As the motility of cancer cells in vitro is strongly correlated with their metastatic potential in vivo, this assay method could aid in the clinical classification of cancers for better diagnosis and management.

5 Quantum Dot Cytotoxicity and Potential Safety Concerns toxicity, compared to existing transfection agents, was observed in MDA-MB-231 cells. The QD–siRNA nanoparticles were also dual-modality optical and electronmicroscopy probes, allowing real-time tracking and the ultrastructural localization of QDs during delivery and transfection. These new insights and capabilities represent a major step towards nanoparticle engineering for combined imaging and therapeutic applications. 5 Quantum Dot Cytotoxicity and Potential Safety Concerns One major obstacle to fully exploring the in vivo applications of QDs in biomedical imaging is the concern regarding their possible cytotoxicity.

5 nm spatial precision. These studies demonstrated the ability of QDs to probe the operation of motor proteins at the molecular level in living cells, under physiological conditions. While the calculation used in this study was based on two-dimensional (2-D) trajectories of QD-containing vesicles, a more recent investigation conducted by Watanabe et al. involved monitoring the stepwise movements generated by myosin, dynein, and kinesin in three dimensions [102]. By using QDs conjugated to HER2 and a three-dimensional (3-D) confocal microscope, it was possible to watch the QD-enclosing vesicles (after they had been endocytosed into the cells) be moved along the membrane by transferring actin filaments, along microtubules toward the nucleus, or away from the nucleus back to the cell membrane, and with time resolution and spatial precision similar to those reported in the previous study.
