Synthetic Molecules Facilitate Cell Adherence
In an apparent tissue engineering breakthrough, researchers from the University of California, San Francisco have engineered molecules with the ability to act like a cellular glue, capable of allowing for the formation of complex celluar structures and tissues. The adherent molecule can target specific cell types and provide a molecular bond as well as facilitate cellular communication. This may be specifically relevant to complex tissues such as neurons and theur ability to form complex circuits. The study was published in the journal Nature.
