In recent years, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been shown to possess broad antibacterial activity. The present study investigated the cytotoxicity of AgNPs to a common soil bacterium, Pseudomonas sp. The molecular mechanism involved in its stress response to AgNPs was also studied. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of AgNPs was found to be 0.2 mg/L. At a sublethal concentration of 0.1 mg/L AgNPs, the protein expression profile of Pseudomonas showed overexpression of stress proteins… CONTINUE READING
