News: Polymer scaffolds let plant cells twist and weave - Plant cells stretching within the polymer scaffold. Image: Smoukov/Wightman. Miniscule artificial scaffolding units made from nano-fiber polymers and built to house plant cells have enabled scientists to see for the first time how individual plant cells behave and interact with each other in a three-dimensional (3D) environment. These ‘hotels for cells’ mimic the extracellular matrix that cells secrete before they grow and divide to ...
