Visualization and Cytotoxicity of Fluorescence-Labeled Dimeric Magnetite-Gold Nanoparticles Conjugated with Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen in Mouse Macrophages

We demonstrated the possibility of penetration of magnetite-gold nanoparticles conjugated with prostate-specific membrane antigen into mouse macrophages. It was found that after 3-h incubation with nanoparticles in a concentration of 15 mg/liter at 37oC, they were seen in only 13% macrophages. In about 90% cells, the nanoparticles were detected within the cytoplasm. Under these conditions, membrane damage was revealed in 25% cells. These results should be taken into account in further development and application of nanomaterials for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes in oncology.
