NIST Scientists quantify nanoparticle-protein interactions.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
January 15, 2010 Research team at NIST has quantified interaction of gold nanoparticles with proteins found in human blood, an approach that should be useful in development of nanoparticle-based medical therapies and for better understanding the physical origin of toxicity of certain nanoparticles. Team found that once proteins stick to nanoparticles, optical properties of both particles and proteins change. Measuring changes helps quantify propensity of particles to aggregate due to presence of protein layers.
