Abstract

Magnetic nanomaterials with multimodal functionalities have emerged as a versatile platform for biomedical applications that range from basic cellular interrogation to clinical nanomedicine. In this work, we have prepared electrodeposited ferromagnetic nickel nanowires for efficient internalization into 3T3 fibroblasts. Agitation of the nanowires by a low external field induced cell death, as assessed by MTT viability assays. The response of the interleukin-6 (IL-6) gene expression of the fibroblasts to nanowire-mediated cellular manipulation was examined by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). These nanowires exhibited significant potential as therapeutic and interrogative platforms for biomedicine.
