The world's first eukaryotic cell made of plastic

  • Detail

Dutch scientists made the world's first eukaryotic cell from plastic

recently, a research team at the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands developed the world's first eukaryotic cell with high molecular polymers. This achievement is of extraordinary significance

eukaryotic cells refer to cells with complete nuclei, which means that all complex life forms are based on eukaryotic cells. There are many small-scale and efficient chemical reactions in the nucleus. These anti graphene are monolayer graphite, which should be difficult to simulate in artificial experiments

the research team used a drop of water as the basic structure, added polystyrene balls containing enzymes to simulate the key components, and then used polybutadiene polymer to simulate the cell wall to build an overall structure. This artificial cell is like a real one, which can carry out chemical reactions step by step. They succeeded in making it glow in the dark, confirming this simulation concept

this achievement will have a significant impact on the field of Biochemistry and may trigger a technological revolution in artificial photosynthesis and biofuel production

according to the requirements of the "zero growth action plan of fertilizer application", Jane van Hearst, who led the research, said: "through simulation experiments, we can better understand the function of living cells. In the future, we can certainly imitate things that look very similar."
