The study pertains to the cellular uptake and toxicity of gold nanoparticles synthesized using a microbial polysaccharide, gellan gum, as a capping and reducing agent. The current findings, while establishing the specific uptake of nanoparticles into cancerous cells, also demonstrates that the gellan gum-reduced gold nanoparticles were devoid of toxicity in animals following oral administration.
