|Abstract:||The interaction of single-layer graphene oxide (SLGO) and multi-layered graphene oxide (MLGO) with a cell culture medium (Le. DMEM) was studied by evaluating fetal bovine serum (FBS) protein corona formation towards in vitro nanotoxicity assessment and nanobiointeractions. SLGO and MLGO exhibited different colloidal behavior in the culture medium, which was visualized by cryogenic transmission electron microscopy in situ analysis. Exploring proteomics and bioinformatics tools, 394 and 290 proteins were identified on the SLGO and MLGO hard corona compositions, respectively. From this amount, 115 proteins were exclusively detected on the SLGO and merely 11 on MLGO. SLGO enriched FBS proteins involved in metabolic processes and signal transduction, while MLGO enriched proteins involved in cellular development/structure, and lipid transport/metabolic processes. Such a distinct corona profile is due to differences on surface chemistry, aggregation behavior and the surface area of GO materials. Hydrophilic interactions were found to play a greater role in protein adsorption by MLGO than SLGO. Our results point out implications for in vitro studies of graphene oxide materials concerning the effective dose delivered to cells and corona bioactivity. Finally, we demonstrated the importance of integrating conventional and modern techniques thoroughly to understand the GO-FBS complexes towards more precise, reliable and advanced in vitro nanotoxicity assessment|
