Temperature-sensitive protein expression in protocells.

A new interesting article has been published in Chem Commun (Camb). 2019 May 30;55(45):6421-6424. doi: 10.1039/c9cc02734c. and titled:

A summary of the article is shown below:

We engineered a synthetic temperature regulation toolbox to enable protocells to sense and respond to heat, utilizing RNA thermometers. The thermo-sensitive protocells were generated by encapsulating temperature feedback transcription/translation machinery in droplets. Based on these temperature-sensing devices, the protocells can be operated with logic AND gates, differentially processing temperature stimuli into biological signals.
