AuNP-mediated vesicle fusion. a Schematic of the AuNP-labelled vesicle. b Chemical structure of the biotinylated lipid. c Schematic and fluorescence microscopy image of VIM fusion. A Rh-PE-labelled vesicle (yellow channel) is fused with a calcein-containing vesicle (green channel) with the application of a laser (white dot) at the VIM (white arrow) to yield a vesicle carrying both fluorescent lipid and fluorescent cargo. Scale bar = 5 µm for all images
