Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Functionalization of bacterial cell surfaces has the potential to introduce new activities by chemical modification. Here we show that a bacteriophage-receptor complex can be used to functionalize the surface of two Gram-negative proteobacteria, Escherichia coli and Ralstonia eutropha with CdSe/ZnS nanoparticles. This work highlights the potential for using microbe-phage interactions to generate new functions on living cells.
