Lipid Nanoparticles Deliver mRNA Cargo

Lipid Nanoparticles Deliver mRNA Cargo

Many people are nervous about how mRNA vaccines may interact with their body. Herein, this image shows what would happen after the mRNA lipid nanoparticles, which were prepared using Moderna mRNA vaccine formulation, entered the human cell. The release of mRNA cargo (cyan color) from lipid nanoparticles (Red), and the escape of mRNA from endosome (green color) into the cytoplasm are clearly illustrated.

I took this image because I was hoping to study the interaction of mRNA lipid nanoparticle vaccines with human cells. I try to learn the process of nanoparticle update and mRNA release.
