The exocytosis of phosphonate modified mesoporous silica nanoparticles (P-MSNs) is demonstrated and lysosomal exocytosis is identified as the mechanism responsible for this event. Regulation of P-MSN exocytosis can be achieved by inhibiting or accelerating lysosomal exocytosis. Slowing down P-MSN exocytosis enhances the drug delivery effect of CPT-loaded P-MSNs by improving cell killing.
