3 Dose-dependent inhibition of growth rate (μ) of different bacterial strains by silver nanoparticles. Efforts have been made to understand the underlying molecular mechanism of such antimicrobial actions. In this report we have for the first time shown that silver NPs can change the protein profile of bacteria by interacting with protein molecules that are involved in bacterial cell signaling. Bactericidal properties of the NPs are related not only to the direct effects of silver NPs accumulating intracellularly or at the cell membrane, but also to the ionic or dissolved silver derived from NPs, which also possesses significant antibacterial properties.

However, it is only in the last 5 years that a new branch of science, known as “nanomedicine,” has emerged as a distinct field, and it has since grown exponentially. The late Nobel physicist Richard P. Feynman had the visionary idea that tiny nanorobots could be designed, manufactured, and introduced into the human body to perform cellular repairs at the molecular level. In his prescient 1959 talk, “There’s plenty of room at the bottom,” he proposed using machine tools to make smaller machine tools, which could be used in turn to make still smaller machine tools, and so on all the way down to the atomic level [1].

Antigen Proteasome MHC class II Peptide ER or ER–endosome ? MHC class I To cell surface Fig. 8 Predicted mechanism of cross-presentation induced by γ-PGA NPs. Antigens encapsulated in γ-PGA NPs enter the DC by endocytosis (phagocytosis and/or macropinocytosis). The γ-PGA-NP-enhanced ER–endosome fusion and confined antigens are retrotranslocated via the ER translocon Sec61 from the fused ER–endosome complex to the cytosol. The released antigens are degraded by cytoplasmic proteasomes and transported to the ER or ER–endosome fusion via TAP, and then the antigen–MHC class I complex is presented on the cell surface.
