Emergence of multi-resistant organisms (MROs) leads to ineffective treatment with the currently available medications which pose a great threat to public health and food technology sectors. In this regard, there is an urgent need to strengthen the present therapies or to look over for other potential alternatives like use of "metal nanocomposites". Thus,(More)
Currently the applications of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) are gaining overwhelming response due to the advancement of nanotechnology. However, only limited information is available with regard to their toxicity mechanism in different species. It is very essential to understand the complete molecular mechanism to explore the functional and long term(More)
In the present study, a facile one-step hydrothermal treatment of coriander leaves for preparing carbon dots (CDs) has been reported. Optical and structural properties of the CDs have been extensively studied by UV-visible and fluorescence spectroscopic, microscopic (transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy) and X-ray diffraction(More)
Advanced nanomaterials integrating imaging and therapeutic modalities on a single platform offers a new horizon in current cancer treatment strategies. Recently, carbon dots (CQDs) have been successfully employed for bioimaging of cancer cells. In the present study, luminescent CQDs with anionic terminus and cationic acetylated G5 poly(amido amine)(More)
Herein, we report the development of a poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrimer based multicomponent therapeutic agent for in vitro cancer therapy applications. In this approach, Generation 5 (G5) PAMAM dendrimers stabilizing silver nanoparticle surface (DsAgNPs) were used to encapsulate anticancer drug 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) to attain synergism in cancer cells.(More)
Multifunctional hydrogels offer a seemingly efficient system for delivery of drugs and bioimaging modalities. The present study deals with the facile development of chitosan-based hydrogel formulation composed of highly fluorescent carbon dots (CDs) and loaded with a model anticancer drug, 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU). Herein, CDs were embedded firmly within the(More)
Ferritin is a ubiquitous iron storage protein responsible for maintaining the iron homeostasis in living organism and thereby protects the cell from oxidative damage. The ferritin protein cages have been used as a reaction vessel for the synthesis of various non-native metallic nanoparticles inside its core and also used as a nanocarrier for various(More)
A series of 1,8-naphthalimide-based fluorophores containing different chromophores with varying conjugation and electron richness at the imidic nitrogen atom are synthesized and characterized. These amine-functionalized naphthalimides are bipolar in nature and exhibit interesting optical and morphological variations attributable to the nature of the N(More)
