Nanollaves with cell membranes

Cornell scientists make "nano-keys" to bind cell receptors together and activate allergic reactions 16/02:

Researchers at Cornell University have developed a series of molecule-like scale "nanobuckets" to interact with receptors on cell membranes and activate larger-scale responses between cells, such as the release of histamines in a cell. allergic response.

For years, the way in which cell membranes control cell function has been studied, with hardly any results. However, today, nanotechnology provides researchers with new tools to better understand the role played by cell membranes in activating responses between cells.
