Interactions of chitosan and its derivatives with cells (review)

  • A. A. Zubareva
  • E. V. Svirshchevskaya


Mechanisms of interaction between chitosan, various macromolecules or drug delivery systems and mammalian cells are reviewed. Modernly the role of different physicochemical properties of chitosan and chitosan nanoparticles on the mechanisms of cell bunding, endocytosis and redistribution are poorly understood.
