Abstract

This communication reports the development of a TiO2-streptavidin nanoconjugate as a new biological label for X-ray bioimaging applications; this new probe, used in conjunction with the nanogold probe, will make it possible to obtain quantitative, high-resolution information about the location of proteins using X-ray microscopy.
