Physicists develop world's first artificial cell-like spheres from natural proteins

(Saarland University) Physicists from Saarland University have developed a type of artificial cell, a vesicle. The bilayer that forms the outer boundary of the vesicle is made from a naturally occurring protein. This is the first time this has been achieved anywhere. The properties of this novel vesicle are such that it is stable both in aqueous (water-based) and in oil- or fat-based environments.
