Serum albumin enhances the membrane activity of ZnO nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

We investigate the effect of serum albumin on the interaction of ZnO nanoparticles with DOPC lipid membranes and show that the size-stabilizing effect of the protein corona enhances their interaction with lipid membranes, which manifests, in part, as an increased ordering in the lipid packing.
