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.
