Abstract

We investigate the effect of serum albumin on the interaction of ZnO nanoparticles with DOPC lipid membranes and show that the size-stabilizing effect of the protein corona enhances their interaction with lipid membranes, which manifests, in part, as an increased ordering in the lipid packing.
