Abstract

Carbon nanotubes can intracellularly transport through different cellular barriers. However, their use in plant cells is limited by the cellulosic cell wall surrounding these cells. Here we show that cup-stacked carbon nanotubes with cellulase immobilized on their sidewalls and tips penetrate the cell wall and transport intracellularly through cellulase-induce nanoholes.
