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.
