Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Imaging of A431 Cancer Cells Using Gold Nanorods
Abstract:In this study, we report the synthetic processing of gold nanorods and a method for the molecular imaging of epidermal growth factor receptors (EGFRs) on A431 cancer cells using synthesized gold nanorods and confocal laser scanning microscopy. Through this study, we confirm the potential of this imaging method instead of using fluorophores and quantum dots.
