Nanostructure of the "protein-nanoparticle corona" an indicator of toxicity?
Nanoparticle-protein complexes comprising silica or cadmium sulfide nanoparticles with human proteins have been detected with high sensitivity at the air-water interface using X-ray and neutron reflectivity measurements and ellipsometry. For the interaction between-casein and 8 nm silica particles the sensitivity of the reflectivity signal at the air-water interface has been shown by X-ray reflectmetry to be pico-molar. This high sensitivity results from the nanoparticle-protein interaction...[Show more]
