Dendrimers produce artificial antibodies

from the molds-from-molecules dept.
RobertBradbury writes "Science Daily provides a nice summary of work at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in which a team of chemists have developed a process using dendrimers to produce artificial antibodies."

"Now if we can just get a design for a molecular sorting rotor to attach them to we would have one of the key components that one needs to build nanorobots like respirocytes."

    Academic paper link

    The actual peer reviewed paper on this topic is Zimmerman, S. C. et al, "Synthetic hosts by monomolecular imprinting inside dendrimers", Nature 418:399-403 (2002)

    Friday I nerded it up with Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons and Dragons Online, and when I was done SEVERELY geeking it up, I followed it by some comic reading and light masturbation. All in all, a productive day. Saturday I spent with Shona as she tried and failed to match my levels of nerdery by coming comic shopping with me, then I attempted to valiantly resist a pants shattering erection as I stood around in the underwear section as she picked stuff out. I only pocketed 6 to 7 pairs ok? Nothing…
