A length threshold for cell uptake of DNA-wrapped single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) by human lung fibroblasts (IMR90) is identified. Competitive uptake experiments with well-defined and characterized length fractions show that SWNTs above the length threshold are excluded from the cell, whereas SWNTs labeled with Cy3-derivatized DNA below the threshold are able to access the cell interior, as shown in the fluorescence image and on the cover.
