The delivery of PEBBLE nanosensors to measure the intracellular environment

Webster, A., Houghton, F.D., Leese, H.J. and Aylott, J.W. (2007) The delivery of PEBBLE nanosensors to measure the intracellular environment Biochemical Society Transactions, 35, (3), pp. 538-543.

Record type: Article


Cellular introduction of PEBBLEs (photonic explorers for bioanalysis with biologically localized embedding) has been investigated by a wide variety of methods in a range of cell types. These methods include surface functionalization with CPPs (cell-penetrating peptides), pinocytosis, commercial lipid transfection agents, cytochalasin D, picoinjection, and Gene gun bombardment. This paper will overview several of the most popular methods used for the introduction of PEBBLE nanosensors to the cellular environment and discuss the efficacy of the techniques.
