Abstract
This Keynote explores the ability of our Nano3A system to screen anti-mitochondrial antifungal, anticancer and anti-malarial drugs. Th is system consists of the Anti-mitochondrial Antifungal Assay (3A) linked to Nano Scanning Auger Microscopy (NanoSAM) and Nano Focused Ion Beam Time-of-Flight SIMS (NanoFIB-TOF) nanotechnologies. Here yeast sexual cells serve as indicators to screen drugs with anti-mitochondrial activity (3A system) while NanoSAM and NanoFIB-TOF are used to determine the drug’s metabolic fate as well as eff ects on sexual cell 3D ultrastructure and chemical composition as etching proceeds in nanometre slices through cell.
