Interaction of Shungite carbon nanoparticles with blood protein and cell components.
We have analyzed and compared the effects of aqueous dispersion of shungite carbon nanoparticles, fullerene C, and nanodiamonds on structure, dynamics, and thermodynamic and redox properties of blood proteins (serum albumin and hemoglobin), proteins of erythrocyte ghost membranes as well as on erythrocyte integrity and aggregation.. All the nanomaterials dispersions have induced similar effects; however, nanodiamonds have not influences the redox properties. Basing on the results, the experimental and theoretical approaches presented can be employed to estimate the effects of biological structures contact with the nanoparticles on the bioreactivity.
