Special delivery: Functionalized single-walled nanotubes (SWNT) can be used as molecular transporters to shuttle short interfering RNA (siRNA) into human T cells and primary cells and silence the expression of HIV-specific cell-surface receptors and coreceptors (see picture; scale bars 40 μm). This silencing effect, known to block HIV viral entry and reduce infection, is superior to that observed with conventional liposome-based nonviral delivery agents.
