Featured article: Bioluminescent magnetic nanoparticles as potential imaging agents for mammalian spermatozoa
In this paper, Vasquez et al. demonstrate a new technique for non-toxic labelling of spermatozoa with bioluminescent composites containing iron nanoparticles and firefly luciferase. The magnetic properties may allow in vivo manipulation of cells.
