Artificial organelles in the scavenger cells of a zebrafish that were made visible by a fluorescent reaction. The fluorescence only occurs when the enclosed peroxidase enzyme is activated and reacts hydrogen peroxide produced by the scavenger cells. The researchers have thus provided evidence that the artificial organelles function in vivo. (Image: University of Basel, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences)

Tiny implants for cells are functional in vivo, study

Scientists at the University of Basel, for the first time, have successfully integrated artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. The approach offers new potential...
