br Conclusion br This work
This work demonstrated the characterization and cytotoxicity of the biogenic MgONPs and Ag-MgONPs. The high throughput bio-materials characterization results revealed the successful fabrica-tion of the NPs. Particularly, the XPS and EDS results strongly evidenced the formation of Ag-MgONPs by bonding of Ag-O-Mg. The cytotoxicity assays revealed the Ag-MgONPs induced cell death in PC-3 D-Luciferin through activation of ROS production, cellular and nucleus damage. This work is worthy for the further study on molecular mechanisms of Ag-MgONPs induced cancer cell death.
