New Molecular Superglue Was Inspired By Flesh-Eating Bacteria
Biochemists created a protein used by bacteria to bind and invade human cells and made a glue that binds molecules together.
Researchers at Oxford University have developed a really strong superglue that can stick molecules together and not let go. It was inspired by a protein from a type of bacteria that can cause deadly infections like flesh-eating disease. The molecular glue could have many applications in the research lab and the wider scientific community.
