Austrian scientists develop bionic proteins

Vienna, Feb 18 — Austrian scientists have developed nano particles that can mimic the function of proteins.

Physicists of the University of Vienna together with researchers from the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna developed nano-machines which recreate principal activities of proteins, Science Daily reported.

They present the first versatile and modular example of a fully artificial protein-mimetic model system, thanks to the Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC), a high performance computing infrastructure.

These 'bionic proteins' could play an important role in innovating pharmaceutical research.

In a recent paper in Physical Review Letters, the team presented the first example of a fully artificial bio-mimetic model system capable of spontaneously self-knotting into a target structure.
