Bioresponse to nanotubes: surface chemistry of carbon nanotubes impacts the growth and expression of water channel protein in tomato plants (small 15/2012).
Summary of "Bioresponse to nanotubes: surface chemistry of carbon nanotubes impacts the growth and expression of water channel protein in tomato plants (small 15/2012)."
A tomato plant grows on medium supplemented with multi-walled carbon nanotubes. The correlations between the level of aggregation, the type of functional group on the surface of applied carbon nanotubes, plant growth performance and the expression of tomato water channel protein in the cell membranes of roots exposed to multi-walled carbon nanotubes are documented and discussed by A. S. Biris, M. V. Khodakovskaya, and co-workers.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Nanometer-sized tubes composed of various substances including carbon (CARBON NANOTUBES), boron nitride, or nickel vanadate.
Nanometer-sized tubes composed mainly of CARBON. Such nanotubes are used as probes for high-resolution structural and chemical imaging of biomolecules with ATOMIC FORCE MICROSCOPY.
NANOTUBES formed from cyclic peptides (PEPTIDES, CYCLIC). Alternating D and L linkages create planar rings that self assemble by stacking into nanotubes. They can form pores through CELL MEMBRANE causing damage to cells.
A dark powdery deposit of unburned fuel residues, composed mainly of amorphous CARBON and some HYDROCARBONS, that accumulates in chimneys, automobile mufflers and other surfaces exposed to smoke. It is the product of incomplete combustion of carbon-rich organic fuels in low oxygen conditions. It is sometimes called lampblack or carbon black and is used in INK, in rubber tires, and to prepare CARBON NANOTUBES.
Materials which have structured components with at least one dimension in the range of 1 to 100 nanometers. These include NANOCOMPOSITES; NANOPARTICLES; NANOTUBES; and NANOWIRES.
