Silver nanoparticles: green synthesis and antimicrobial applications
Biosynthesis of Nanoparticles by Microorganisms and …
Biosynthesized AgNPs from leaf extract of Vitex negundo L. proved to be an antitumor agent against human colon cancer cell line HCT15 (Prabhu et al. ). In vitro cytotoxicity effect was analyzed by AgNPs synthesized using Sesbania grandiflora leaf extract against human breast cancer (MCF-7) (Jeyaraj et al. ). The potential silver nanoparticles synthesized from calli extract of Citrullus colocynthis was investigated on human epidermoid larynx carcinoma cell line (Satyavani et al. ). Govender et al. , studied cytotoxic activity of Albizia adianthifolia (AA)-mediated silver nanoparticles and showed mechanistically the activation of AA AgNP in the intrinsic apoptotic pathway in A549 lung carcinoma cells.
Synthesis of nanoparticles by fungi - Wikipedia
However, very limited studies have been reported on the factors affecting or responsible for biosynthesis of metal nanoparticles. Synthesis of nanoparticles by using microorganisms has been developed over the last decades. It is known that the synthesis of nanoparticles using microorganisms is a quite slow process compared to physical and chemical approaches. Synthesis using microorganism is still on the laboratory scale. Efforts should be made to investigate the practical application of microorganism in nanoparticles production 47.
