The aggregates of gold dots that were ejected from the cells at the basal membrane (Fig. 23C), were never seen to build up within the cells in vacuoles, endosome or became associated with organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria within the 3-hour incubation period. The incorporation and transport of the DNA-covered Au nanoparticles did not follow usual cellular mechanisms for particulate incorporation and intracellular processing in these epithelial cells. This unique type of nanoparticle cellular processing is summarized in the schematic Fig.

Typically non-phagocytic cells will incorporate microorganisms, biomolecules and foreign material by a process called endocytosis. Traditionally, materials attach to receptor sites (in blue) on the apical plasma membrane. In this diagram, the red nanoparticles adsorb biomolecules (in green) such as serum proteins or surface glycoproteins, which then bind to the receptor sites on the membrane. The plasma membrane with the attached nanoparticle-receptor complexes invaginates to form the endosomal vesicle.
