Russian scientists close to creating artificial bones

Bone structure and the work of forming their genes has long been studied in many different scientists, such as biologists, physicists, and even nanotechnology. After reviewing all this, they hope to create the world’s first artificial bone that will be perceived by the human body as real. Recently a breakthrough in the case was made by researchers from southern Ural state University — they found out how the proteins and amino acids can connect with “inanimate” matter.

At the beginning of his research scientists are faced with the fact that are unable to obtain involved in bone mineralization proteins in a pure form. Because of this, they decided that they should think about working with amino acids, which enter into their composition. Other material involved in the study was titanium dioxide — recently she became a part created in Russia protivokariesnoe seals with an unlimited life span.

Nanoparticles were treated with amino acids and examined under the microscope and x-ray. It turned out that negatively charged acids are concatenated with “inanimate” matter is much weaker than the core. Of great importance were the amino group from one nitrogen atom and two hydrogen atoms. More details about the adhesion will be revealed later.

Ideally, scientists want to create content, which in structure resemble the structure of the beaks, shells and spikes some animals. For the most part they consist of inorganic materials, sewn with each other in proteins and other compounds. Research should shed light on why these “lifeless” body is not rejected by the immune system.
