Abstract

The effects of quantum dots CdSe/ZnS-mercaptopropionic acid, (CdSe/CdZnS)ZnS-polyT, and CdSeCdSZnS/polyT/SiO2-NH2 on human erythrocytes were studied. The nanomaterials reduced signifi cantly the erythrocyte sedimentation rate and modified the erythrocyte membrane resistance to induced (acid and hypo-osmotic) hemolysis. Evaluation of the erythrocyte morphology by atomic force microscopy in the control and after exposure to quantum dots showed significant differences in erythrocyte size and changes in their morphology as a result of exposure to the nanomaterials.
