Abstract

Systematic Preparation of Artificial Cells (DNA Crown Cells)

Shoshi Inooka

Artificial cells, which are engineered particles that mimic one or many functions of biological cells, have attracted much attention in recent decades as a new technology. In a previous study, artificial cells were prepared using chicken eggs and sphingosine-DNA. The resulting DNA crown cells were surrounded by a membrane containing lipid and DNA, which was formed with egg white components. The study describes a novel method that allows the easy preparation of DNA crown cells using adenosine and monolaurin.
