Any nanomaterial is always covered by proteins immediately upon contact with a physiological environment, this phenomenon may be the key to understanding much of bionanoscience. This formation of the nanoparticle protein corona changes the behaviour of the nanoparticle and translates to issues in their transport and fate in the environment, animals and humans; this however, also offers a new route to study protein interactions. Ideal for toxicologists and researchers in nanoscience, this book provides a detailed understanding of the formation and biological significance of the corona, as well as the impact on biological assays, exotoxicity studies and proteomics research.
