Gold nanoparticles investigated as part of in vitro tool for SARS-CoV-2 drug screening

By | February 22, 2021
Scientists have measured the interaction of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) spike (S) protein with nano-gold colloids. These nanoparticles functionalized with the S protein have different spectroscopic signals allowing for new information about the protein to be extracted.
