Silver nanoparticles induced RNA polymerase-silver binding and RNA transcription inhibition in erythroid progenitor cells.


Due to its antimicrobial activity, nanosilver (nAg) has become the most widely used nanomaterial. Thus far, the mechanisms responsible for nAg-induced antimicrobial properties and nAg-mediated toxicity to organisms have not been clearly recognized. Silver (Ag) ions certainly play a crucial role, and the form of nanoparticles can change the dissolution rate… (More)
