    • Gold nanoparticles for selective and remote heating of β-amyloid protein aggregates 

      Bastus, Neus G.; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo; Amigo, Roger; Grillo-Bosch, Dolors; Araya, Eyleen; Turiel, Antonio; Labarta, Amilcar; Giralt, Ernest; Puntes, Victor F. (2007)
      Nanoparticles can be made to respond resonantly to a time-varying electromagnetic field with advantageous results related to the transfer of energy from the exciting field to the nanoparticles. The surface of each particle ...
    • Nanoparticle-mediated local and remote manipulation of protein aggregation 

      Kogan Bocian, Marcelo; Bastus, Neus G.; Amigo, Roger; Grillo-Bosch, Dolors; Araya, Eyleen; Turiel, Antonio; Labarta, Amilcar; Giralt, Ernest; Puntes, Víctor F. (AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 2006-01)
      The local heat delivered by metallic nanoparticles selectively attached to their target can be used as a molecular surgery to safely remove toxic and clogging aggregates. We apply this principle to protein aggregates, in ...
