Heart Tissue Cultured on Spinach Leaves

2017 27 Mar

Researchers have turned to the vascular system of plants to solve a major bioengineering problem blocking the regeneration of human tissues and organs. In a series of experiments, the researchers cultured beating human heart cells on spinach leaves that were stripped of plant cells. Their work is described in the paper "Crossing kingdoms: Using decelluralised... Read more
