The protein corona of mesoporous silica particles is significantly affected by their morphology, pore structure and size. High aspect ratio particles with large 12 nm pores have a high proportion of low molecular weight proteins in comparison to spherical particles with 5 nm pores, which show a homogenous protein coating which is generally constant in protein composition after long incubation times in serum. The pre-formation of a protein corona prior to incubation with microglia cells enhances the cellular uptake of spherical particles but not facetted or high aspect ratio particles.
