Artificial Cell-on-a-Chip Imitates Biochemical Reactions Inside Cells

The researchers used the newly developed microfluidic platform to produce three different types of vesicles with a uniform size but different cargoes: β-galactosidase (red vesicle), glucose oxidase (green vesicle) or horseradish peroxidase (blue). The water-soluble enzymes gradually convert the starting product into the final colored product Resorufin, which -- like all of the intermediates -- enters the surrounding solution via selective channels in the vesicle membranes.

Tarantula Toxin Could Help To Design Drugs for Chronic Pain

News

A new high-resolution cryo-electron microscopy study shows how the Chinese tarantula stinger quickly locks voltage sensors on sodium channels, the tiny pores on cell membranes that create electrical currents and generate signals to operate nerves and muscles. This discovery provides a molecular template for future structure-based drug design of pain therapeutics.
