Researchers at Duke University demonstrate a method for controlling the phase separation of the emerging class of proteins, IDPs, to create artificial membrane-less organelles within human cells. The team states their major advance establishes a favorable environment for the inception of astrobiologics capable of modulating existing cell functions or spawning entirely new cellular functions.

Researchers create artificial organelles to control intracellular behavior.

An essential nutrient and fuel, proteins are considered the building block of life and are found in every cell of the body. Proteins are compound molecules of varying sizes made … Continue Reading Researchers create artificial organelles to control intracellular behavior.
