In recent years, nanotechnology wins key positions in various fields of knowledge thanks to the special provisions with nanoparticles, namely their size and physicochemical properties. High ability of metal nanoparticles to accumulate leads to their accumulation in plant and animal organisms by increasing the bioavailability, overcoming biobarriers, tying together nucleic acids and proteins.

The accumulation features of nanoparticles of metals in plants, the impact on germination and vegetation, metabolism and productivity are researched in the article. Data on the use of metal nanoparticles in animal feed as an antibiotics alternative to increase productivity are analyzed. It is established that the rare earth elements may intensify the exchange of proteins and other nutrients by stimulating hormones activity inducing the synthesis of metallothioneins and growing conversion ratio feed. The changes of prooxidant-oxidant status of animal blood by the use of drugs with nanoparticles of cerium dioxide and changes of homeostasis are established. The use of rare earth elements is positive for poultry egg production because of egg production intensification, their weight and rate of fertilization of eggs for hatching. The influence of nanoparticles on metal redox potential and processes of lipid peroxidation in animals is established. Nanodispersed ceria use as a promising nanobiomaterial for biological and medical applications and the need for further research to study all possible mechanisms of its biological activity are argued.
