Paper Abstract

In this paper we present our recent studies on understanding how gold nanoparticles with defined characteristics in terms of size, shape, charge and function a) influence the formation of tight junctions between MDCK-II cells and b) interact with the cellular barrier of MDCK-II cells. We focused our work to seven types of gold nanoparticles, which are promising for biological applications or often employed as reference particles in biological experiments.
