We report that Au(0) nanoparticles, stabilized by 5-aminovaleric acid, selectively penetrate into K562 cancer cells in a short time. These experiments were carried out in order to verify the specific recognition of gold sol by abnormal cells. The observed selectivity towards gold nanoparticles by K562 makes the metallic system attractive for cancer therapy.
