The affinity of zeolite nanoparticles (diameter of 8–12 nm) possessing high surface area and high pore volume towards human plasma proteins has been investigated. The protein composition (corona) of zeolite nanoparticles has been shown to be more dependent on the plasma protein concentrations and the type of zeolites than zeolite nanoparticles concentration. The number of proteins present in the corona of zeolite nanoparticles at 100% plasma (in vivo state) is less than with 10% plasma exposure… 
Molecular interaction of fibrinogen with zeolite nanoparticles
Simulation results showed that both E- and D-domain of fibrinogen are bound to the EMT zeolite NPs via strong electrostatic interactions, and undergo structural changes leading to exposing normally buried sequences.
Zeolite Nanoparticles Inhibit Aβ-Fibrinogen Interaction and Formation of a Consequent Abnormal Structural Clot.
The results clearly showed that the delay in clot dissolution was significantly reduced in the presence of zeolite NPs, which indicates that the inhibitory strength of these NPs is independent of Aβ sequence, and it is suggested that the zeolites adsorb fibrinogen and specifically obstruct their Aβ binding sites.
Nanoparticle-Protein Interaction: The Significance and Role of Protein Corona.
This chapter describes the formation of protein corona on nanoparticles and the differences arising in its composition due to variations in nanoparticle properties.
Surface functionalization-specific binding of coagulation factors by zinc oxide nanoparticles delays coagulation time and reduces thrombin generation potential in vitro
Investigation of the impact of size and surface functional groups on the platelet homeostasis found that ZnO NPs reduced the levels of coagulation factors in the supernatant with functionalization-specificity, which might imply that the adsorbed coagulated factors are not functional.

The role of human serum and solution chemistry in fibrinogen peptide-nanoparticle interactions.
Results indicated that gamma-fibrinogen binding interactions with silica NPs are comparatively insensitive to physiologically relevant pH changes and dramatic increases in glucose concentrations, highlighting the importance of blood chemistries, which vary across individuals and disease states, in mediating protein corona formation.


Corona protein composition and cytotoxicity evaluation of ultra-small zeolites synthesized from template free precursor suspensions
The toxicity of two types of ultra-small zeolites (8–18 nm) with LTL- and EMT-type structures is reported. Both the LTL- and EMT-type zeolites belong to the same group of molecular sieves; they have
Physical-chemical aspects of protein corona: relevance to in vitro and in vivo biological impacts of nanoparticles.
The hard corona can evolve quite significantly as one passes from protein concentrations appropriate to in vitro cell studies to those present in in vivo studies, which has deep implications for in vitro-in vivo extrapolations and will require some consideration in the future.
Crystal Plane- and Size-Dependent Protein Adsorption on Nanozeolite
In this study, nanozeolites LTL with different exposed crystal planes and sizes were synthesized as excellent model material to study the effects of the crystal plane and size of the nanozeolite on
Enhanced protein digestion through the confinement of nanozeolite-assembled microchip reactors.
The low-level proteins down to 16 fmol per analysis were confidently identified using the as-prepared microreactor within a very short residence time coupled to matrix-assisted laser desorption-time-of-flight mass spectrometry.
Protein Corona Composition of Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide Nanoparticles with Various Physico-Chemical Properties and Coatings
It was found that the PVA- coated SPIONs with negative and neutral surface charge adsorbed more serum proteins than the dextran-coated SPions, which resulted in higher blood circulation time for PVA/coated NPs than theDextran/PVA/dextran ones.
Capturing Ultrasmall EMT Zeolite from Template-Free Systems
This work reports the effective synthesis of ultrasmall crystals of the large-pore zeolite EMT from template-free colloidal precursors at low temperature (30°C) and very high yield.
Crucial role of the protein corona for the specific targeting of nanoparticles.
Investigation of the physicochemical effects of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles on the composition of the protein corona and their correspondence toxicological issues revealed that nontargeted SPIONs containing specific proteins will enter the brain endothelial barrier cells.
