Engineered multifunctional metal-phenolic nanocoatings for label-free capture and "self-release" of heterogeneous circulating tumor cells.

Yiling LiuShaobing Zhou


Immunomagnetic beads have been widely explored as an important analytical tool for the rapid and sensitive detection of circulating tumor cells (CTCs). However, their clinical application is seriously hindered by the tedious preparation procedures and heterogeneous nature of CTCs. To this end, a designed multifunctional platform named Fe3O4@TA/CuII superparamagnetic nanoparticles (SPMNPs) is expected to have the following features: (i) the formation of a tannic acid-copper (II) ion (TA/CuII) coating which could be accomplished by a one-step method is very simple; (ii) the TA/CuII coating shows high affinity for heterogeneous CTCs and good resistance to nonspecific adhesion of blood cells; (iii) "self-release" of the captured cells could be achieved as the TA/CuII coating gradually degrades in the cell culture environment without any additional interventions. Therefore, the resulting Fe3O4@TA/CuII SPMNPs could capture various CTCs (MCF-7, HepG2 and HeLa cells) with different expression levels of the epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM). And the capture efficiency and cell purity can reach 88% and 87%, respectively. In addition, 68% of the captured cells are self-released after 6 h of incubation and most of the released cell...Continue Reading

Adhesion Molecules in Health and Disease

Cell adhesion molecules are a subset of cell adhesion proteins located on the cell surface involved in binding with other cells or with the extracellular matrix in the process called cell adhesion. In essence, cell adhesion molecules help cells stick to each other and to their surroundings. Cell adhesion is a crucial component in maintaining tissue structure and function.
