The composition of the protein corona formed on poly(ethylene glycol)-functionalized (PEGylated) poly(glycidyl methacrylate) (PGMA) nanoparticles (NPs) was qualitatively and quantitatively compared to the protein corona on non-PEGylated PGMA NPs. Despite the reputation of PEGylated NPs for stealth functionality, we demonstrate the preferential enrichment of specific serum proteins of varied biological function in the protein corona on PEGylated NPs when compared to non-PEGylated NPs. Additionally, we suggest that the base material of polymeric NPs plays a role in the preferential enrichment of select serum proteins to the hard corona.

A randomised controlled trial of twelve months protein supplementation on muscle mass and strength in elderly womenMeng, Xingqiong (Rosie) (2010)Background. Aging is associated with progressive loss of muscle (sarcopenia), which can lead to reduced muscle strength and an increased risk of falls. Sarcopenia exists in otherwise healthy elderly people and its aetiology ...
