Figure 1. The As-NPs were characterized by DLS measurement in a Malvern Nano ZS instrument equipped with a 4mW He-Ne LASER (λ= 632.8 nm). The calculated average particle size of As-NPs was found to be 76  nm

Figure 2. Leishmania donovani promastigotes stably expressing EGFP were generated by transfection of pTEX-EGFP plasmid into the log phase cells using an electroporator. The image of such a promastigote stably expressing EGFP was given below
