Scientists managed to create synthetic polymers in living cells


Results of researches can provoke opening of new field of chemical biology. Scientists of University of Edinburgh in Scotland developed a way of creation of synthetic biopolymers in living cell. Article about it was published in the Nature Chemistry magazine, Phys.org reports. As researchers noted, earlier was considered that synthetic polymers cannot be created in cages, however they managed to prove the return in the laboratory. Scientists added to human cages of a molecule which promote formation of oxygen radicals and other jet substances in the presence of light. Besides, in cellular cultures biologically compatible monomers were delivered. After that influenced cultures ultra-violet radiation that caused education of free radicals. The last reacted with monomers and "sewed" from them polymer. Scientists note that some of polymers were fluorescent, formed nanoparticles and even changed behavior and the movement of cages. According to them, results of work will help to develop the new field of chemical biology. Besides, it is planned to study in detail influence of polymers on cellular cultures. Biochemists could insert the nanomotor into living cell Earlier was reported that scientists developed self-combined peptide nanomaterials which facilitate delivery of drugs through a cellular membrane.
