Researchers report first-ever protein hydrogels made in living cells

Johns Hopkins cell biologists report what they believe is the first-ever creation of tiny protein-based gelatin-like clumps called hydrogels inside living cells. The ability to create hydrogels on demand, they say, should advance the long scientific struggle to study the elusive structures--which form in nature when proteins or other molecules aggregate under certain conditions--and to uncover their suspected contributions to human diseases.
