Protein cap analysis. a, b TEM images showing capping protein layer (arrows) around AuNPs. c SDS-PAGE of extracellular protein secreted from T. crassum and protein associated with nanoparticles. Lane 1, molecular size marker. Lane 2, total extracellular protein. Lane 3, nanoparticles loaded without boiling show faint protein band bound to the AuNPs at 116 kDa mark. There is also a band of detached protein at 40 kDa mark. Lane 4, nanoparticles after boiling with 1% SDS loading buffer showing disappearance of the 116 kDa band and a distinct 40 kDa band. Arrow indicates 40 kDa
