Artificial organelles: Digital microfluidic platform for proteoglycan and glycoprotein biosynthesis, J. G. Martin, J. M. Beaudet, J. S. Dordick, R. J. Linhardt, The World Scientific Journal, 10, 997-1000, 2010.
The development of artificial organelles is a new, fast-growing field in which a variety of techniques have been employed. This article gives a brief overview of the history of artificial organelles, and describes the development of an artificial endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi organelle on a digital microfluidic platform. This device should be useful in high-throughput combinatorial proteoglycan/glycoprotein synthesis, providing critical information about the control of biosynthetic pathways for these important signaling molecules.
