Membrane tether formation from outer hair cells with optical tweezers
The mechanical properties of the outer hair cells (OHCs) lateral wall are essential to elucidate the mechanism of OHC electromotility. Optical tweezers were used to characterize the mechanical properties of OHC plasma ...
A mechanistic model for the study of the arterial myogenic response
This study is concerned with the development of a multiple compartment model of the isolated cerebral artery in rat. The smooth muscle/arterial wall complex is an important component of the circulatory model and serves as ...
Engineering magnetic viral nanoheaters for targeted hyperthermia treatment of cancer
Extensive investigations into the multifunctional nature of magnetic nanoparticles have sparked a burgeoning interest in their use for biomedical applications. The potential of abolishing cancer via externally induced ...
The use of a microelectroporator to study poration of Jurkat cells
A microelectroporation system was built to provide a well-controlled and defined environment for quantitative studies of electroporation, a method to permeabilize cell membranes for delivery of normally impermeable ...
