Interaction mechanisms of CdTe quantum dots with proteins possessing different isoelectric points

Author affiliations

Abstract

Interactions of surface-immobilized and solution-dispersed quantum dots (QDs) with proteins possessing different isoelectric points, particularly the molecular binding capability and agglomeration of proteins with QDs are examined, indicating an electrostatic attraction nature. A mechanism involving protein surface charge distribution and protein molecular size is elucidated.
