Inhibition of matrix metalloproteinases and toxicity of gold and platinum nanoparticles
What is it about?
This study evaluated the inhibition of matrix metalloproteases (MMPs) and cellular responses elicited by gold (Au) and platinum (Pt) nanoparticles (NPs).
Why is it important?
Gold nanoparticles are plausible candidates for MMP inhibitors in resin-bonding materials because they effectively inhibit MMP-1 activity without cytotoxic or inflammatory effects.
