Silver nanoparticles' effect on hepatic cancer cells

Silver nanoparticles' effect on hepatic cancer cells
Silver nanoparticles (SNP/AgNP) are known for their wider applications and are predominantly being used in various medical applications. Many researchers are currently working on the fundamental mechanism of anticancerous effect of SNP. A recent study has investigated the effect of SNP on glucose metabolism in the cancerous cells through the experiments carried with hepatoma cell lines. The silver nanoparticles were found to induce the reactive oxygen species generation in the cancerous cells and reduce the release of lactase in two cells namely HepG2 and Huh7, which had an effect on glucose metabolism.
