The silver ion released by the silver antibacterial agent has positive charge, and the cell wall has negative charge. Therefore, the silver will be absorped by the cell wall. It will cause the imbalance between positive charge and negative charge and the break the bacteria.
The silver ion released by the antibacterial agent can penetrate and enter the inner side of cell, then destroy the structure of cell(Mitochondria, vacuoles, nucleomes) and biomolecules (proteins, lipids and DNA)
As for the silver ion released by the silver antibacterial agent, it has strong absorptive and stationary functions for the virus. It can be combined with the certain protein on the virus surface. then influence the interactivity between virus and cell receptor, so as to impede the combination of virus and host cell.Finally, the intrusion of virus can be prevented.
The silver ion released by the silver antibacterial agent can be combined with the viral nucleic acid, which can make the change of DNA or RNA. What’s more, the silver ion can affect the duplication and regeneration of virus, and make it lose activity.
