Significant success in wound healing with mineral nanoparticles
Texas: A team of experts from a number of institutes has proven that inorganic but very important minerals can be used to heal wounds and repair damaged muscle organs.
In this regard, biomedical experts at Texas A&M University say that some minerals increase protein and cell production by regulating gene expression. This is how the tissues are formed and the cellular activity gets better and better.
Inorganic minerals combine with vitamins, enzymes and hormones to do many important things. They perform thousands of functions inside the body. Many minerals play an important role in genetic functions. Then, at their behest, a complex molecular system works inside the body.
Scientists have now created mineral-containing nanoparticles that have been incorporated into stem cells. This caused the stem cells to rapidly form bone cells. Nanoparticles have been given the name of nano-silicates, after which another important role of minerals has emerged.
The shape of the nanosilicate is plate-like and the size of a particle is kept from 20 to 30 nanometers. The nanoparticles became acceptable to the cell and the cells absorbed them. Once inside the cell, it slowly dissolves and is absorbed into minerals such as silicon, magnesium and lithium.
After that many gene switches are turned on and thus sending signals or useful instructions to the cell. The cells then begin to act on them and divide into other types of cells to make a special protein to repair the wound or damage. The cell layer formed by genetic instruction contained a variety of proteins and glycoproteins.
Silicone, magnesium and lithium play important roles in the treatment of mineral nanoparticles. That is, minerals can contribute to genetic expression. However, more research is needed.
