Implementations in Biomedical Therapies by using ?Bacterial Magnetosomes? as Drug Loader

Renu Singh [3] | Sanjiv Kumar Maheshwari [2] | Shalani Gupta


Abstract: The Magnetotactic Bacteria have potential to navigate along magnetic field line due to the presence of magnetosomes. The magnetosomes having unique feature and make them applicable for the nanotechnology and biomedical therapies. In this article, we describe the mass cultivation of magnetosomes. The biomineralization of magnetosomes is a process within a specific compartment called crystals, which are shown to be excellent magnetic-nanocarrier for antibodies, enzymes, ligands, nucleic acid and chemotherapeutic drugs thus, further part of the article focuses towards the strategies for loading drug onto the bacterial magnetosomes (BMs). Finally, we described the potential of BMs in various biomedical applications.


Keywords: Magnetotactic Bacteria, Magnetosomes, Mass Cultivation, Purification, Drug Loading
