Engineered Bacteria Stick To Cancer Cells
It’s usually bad news when a swarm of foreign bacteria pursues cells in the body. But some scientists want to deploy engineered microbes to specific parts of the body to kill tumor cells or deliver drugs. Researchers have now designed a way to target bacteria to particular surfaces and tissues by modifying sticky proteins on the microbes’ surfaces (ACS Synth. Biol. 2014, DOI: . . .
