  Abstract  
  Bioconjugation of nanoparticles with anticancer drugs is an important method of targeted drug therapy. Currently drugs are conjugated artificially onto nanoparticles for targeted delivery. Here we report the results of cancer cytotoxicity of biosynthesized nanoparticles naturally laden with anticancer drugs. During biosynthesis, the titanium nanoparticles are bioconjugated with anticancer biomolecules capable of killing cancer cells. The biosynthesized nanotitanium when exposed to UV radiation reduces the proliferation of cancer cells manifold by apoptosis.
