  • Bio-based calcium carbonate (CaCO3) nanoparticles for drug
           delivery applications
    • Authors: Diane Render, Vijay K. Rangari, Shaik Jeelani, Khalda Fadlalla, Temesgen Samuel
      Pages: 221 - 235
      Abstract: Targeted delivery of a cytotoxic drug using a drug delivery system could maximise the efficacy of the drug and reduce the side effects. Calcium carbonate (CaCO<SUB align="right">3) nanoparticles are highly porous, biocompatible, biodegradable, and have pH-sensitive properties, which makes them good candidates for biological drug delivery systems. In this study, the nanoparticles were derived from egg shells and studied for their drug loading capacity and cytotoxicity, using human colon adenocarcinoma (SW480), and human dermal fibroblast (HDF) cells. The lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) assay indicated a 50% cytotoxicity for SW480 cells at a concentration of 0.3 mg/ml, but there was no cytotoxic effect observed in HDF cells at the same concentration. The anticancer drug 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and natural compound indole-3-carbinol (I3C) were loaded into CaCO<SUB align="right">3 nanoparticles and release profiles were studied. These results showed that the drugs can be loaded in CaCO<SUB align="right">3 nanoparticles and released efficiently. The drug loaded nanoparticles were more cytotoxic compared to the as-received drugs alone. The 5FU-loaded nanoparticles in pH 1.0, 5.0, and 7.4 yielded a total loading and release of 86.98 µg, 77.83 µg, and 162.60 µg respectively. Depending on the pH of the solution, up to 162.60 µg of 5-FU was loaded and released from 50 milligrams of the particles, whereas, up to 563.47 micrograms of I3C was loaded and released from similarly loaded particles. These preliminary results indicate the potential of bio-based CaCO<SUB align="right">3 nanoparticles in therapeutic applications.

  • Generation of nanoparticles from technical powder of the insecticidal
           bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki for improving efficacy
    • Authors: K. Santha Murthy, V. Vineela, P.S. Vimala Devi
      Pages: 236 - 250
      Abstract: The technical powder of a local isolate of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) var. kurstaki namely DOR Bt-1 was subjected to high pressure homogenisation (HPH) to obtain nanoparticles (NPs) ranging 32-1,106 nm as determined through dynamic light scattering. NPs of Bt were also characterised for shape and size through scanning electron microscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy that helped in visualising the smallest nanoparticles, i.e., less than even 50 nm. The larger particles comprised mainly Bt spores with a length and width of 1,139 and 813 nm respectively. HPH showed little effect on the spore viability. NPs had a zeta potential above +30 and were stable, resulted in higher mortality of Helicoverpa armigera larvae at a lower dose. Alkali solubilisation of the NPs resulted in higher values of protein and endotoxin quantified through Lowry's method and ELISA respectively. This is indicative of an increased solubility of the toxin in the midgut alkaline fluid of the insect leading to higher mortality coupled with quicker kill. Thus Bt as NPs has brighter prospects for insect pest management with increased speed of kill at lower doses.

  • Biogenic silver nanoparticles synthesised from Zingiber officinale and its
           antifungal properties
    • Authors: Malini Soundararajan, Neha Deora, Lynette Lincoln, Purandhi Roopmani, Shikha Gupta, Rajatha Shambu
      Pages: 251 - 261
      Abstract: A silver particle at the nanoscale level behaves as an effective antimicrobial agent and offers numerous applications in biosensing and medicine. The current study unveils the effect of rhizome of Zingiber officinale and its silver nanoparticles against the growth and hydrolytic enzyme of two lethal moulds, Alternaria alternata and Curvularia lunata. The rhizome of Zingiber officinale was extracted under aseptic conditions to get cold distilled water and silver nanoparticle extracts in order to check the effect on inhibition of cell mass formation and protease activity of Curvularia lunata and Alternaria alternata. The formation of silver nanoparticles was confirmed by UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The obtained results showed that the highest tested concentration (2%) of Zingiber officinale in cold distilled water and silver nanoparticle extracts strongly inhibited the cell mass formation as well as protease activity in test organisms. The silver nanoparticle extract showed potent antifungal activity when compared to cold distilled water extract. The study unravels the antifungal property of Zingiber officinale and its biogenically synthesised silver nanoparticles that can be exploited further for therapeutical and other industrial applications.

      Abstract: Green synthesis of Ag nanoparticles (AgNPs) has been of great interest because of its potential nanomedical applications. In this study, Dalbergia sissoides seeds (DSS) served as a reducing as well as a stabilising agent simultaneously thereby necessitating no additional reagent or further treatment. Appearance of surface plasmon band at 432 nm within 35 sec of microwave irradiation indicated the formation of DSS-silver nanoparticles. TEM analysis showed the DSS-AgNPs to be almost spherical in shape with a size of 18 ± 2 nm. When evaluated for their in vitro antioxidant activity, the nanoparticles showed considerably better activity when compared to that of the standard and the plant extract. Evaluation of anti-inflammatory activity of DSS-AgNPs by in-vitro method at a concentration of 10 µg/ml showed considerably better activity (94.05%), when compared to that of the plant extract (85.45%). The synthesised silver nanoparticles were also found to be effective in catalytic reduction of 4-nitrophenol (4-NP) into 4-aminophenol (4-AP).

      Abstract: A feasible and fast method to fabricate glucose biosensor was developed by immobilisation of glucose oxidase (GOx) to nano-sepiolite-graphene nanocomposite/glassy carbon electrode. The direct electrochemistry of glucose oxidase not containing medioter and worked in air saturated condition for similarity of in vivo usage. The nano-sepiolite-graphene nanocomposite shows a high conductive and biocompatible template for enzyme immobilisation. The immobilised GOx on nanocomposite shows a couple of well defined reversible peak with the anodic and cathodic peak potentials of -430 and -460 mV (vs. Ag/AgCl), corresponding to the FAD/FADH<SUB align="right">2 redox couple, and with a formal potential of -445 mV in 0.1 M phosphate buffer solution at pH = 7. The linear concentration rang of biosensor is 0.14-3.14 µM, and with detection limit of 0.04 µM. Also, the life time of biosensor is more than four months.
