Nanoparticles reveal mechanisms of cancer cell growth in whole cells

Healthy cells are renewed by dividing and dying off, but cell division in cancer cells goes unchecked because natural cell death is suspended. This happens because too many receptors for the growth factor EGF which are found on the surface of the cell join together to form pairs. These pairs start a signal chain into the cell, culminating in unrestricted growth. Now, nanoscientists have for the first time been able to show this pairing in human cancer cells on individual receptors using gold nanoparticles.
