Taking into consideration the nanodimension of functional components of living cells, the application of nanotechnology in the biomedical purposes is currently an urgent task. One of these directions is the use of aluminum nanoparticles for molecular diagnostics, targeted delivery of drugs, the development of new pharmaceuticals. The action of aluminum chloride on the regulatory mechanisms of smooth and skeletal muscle contraction and also the effect of aluminum ions on the ATPase activity and superprecipitation of actomyosin of different types of muscles is discussed.
