    Abstract

    A method is proposed for controlling the number of nanoparticles bound to cell membranes via RGDS peptide-integrin interactions. It consists of propelling nanoparticles bearing the peptides with enzymes (glucose oxidase), which disrupts biomolecular interactions as a function of the concentration of enzyme substrate (glucose).
