Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have gained interest as an alternative pharmaceutical agent because of antimicrobial resistance and drug toxicity. Considering the increasing request, eco-friendly, sustainable, and cost-effective synthesis of versatile AgNPs has become necessary. In this study, green-made AgNPs were successfully synthesized using Micromonospora sp. SH121 (Mm-AgNPs). Synthesis was verified by surface plasmon resonance (SPR) peak at 402 nm wavelength in the UV-Visible (UV-Vis) absorption spectrum. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis depicted that Mm-AgNPs were in the size range of 10-30 nm and spherical. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) confirmed the existence of bioactive molecules on the surface of nanoparticles. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis revealed the face-centered cubic (fcc) structure of the Mm-AgNPs. Their polydispersity index (PDI) and zeta potential were 0. 284 and -35.3 mV, respectively. Mm-AgNPs (4-32 mu g/mL) exhibited strong antimicrobial activity against Bacillus cereus, Enterococcus faecalis, Enterococcus hirae, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonas putida, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Aspergillus flavus. Mm-AgNPs partially inhibited the biofilm formation in Acinetobacter baumannii, E. coli, K. pneumoniae, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Furthermore, results showed that low concentrations of Mm-AgNPs (1 and 10 mu g/mL) caused higher cytotoxicity and apoptosis in DU 145 cells than human fibroblast cells. Based on the results, Mm-AgNPs have an excellent potential for treating infectious diseases and prostate cancer.
