Cell Surface-based Electrostatic Interaction Modification Service

Electrostatic interaction utilizes the opposite charge interaction between the negatively charged cell membrane and the positively charged modifying materials. The negative charges of the cell outer surface result from the presence of sialic acid residues on glycoproteins or negatively charged proteins anchored to the cell membrane. By exploiting the charged nature of the cell membrane, various electrostatic methods have been developed to engineer the cell surface. As a professional cell surface engineering services provider, Creative Biolabs has accumulated rich precious experience in practice. With strong foundations, we are capable of offering reliable cell surface-based electrostatic interaction modification services.

Introduction of Cell Surface-based Electrostatic Interaction Modification

The outer surface of the cell possesses significant native negative charges due to the presence of sialic acid residues on glycoproteins anchored to the cell membrane. This charge plays a crucial role in preventing cell aggregation. Over the two past decades, layer-by-layer assemblies of polyelectrolytes to form polyelectrolyte multilayer (PEM) films have been well optimized. PEM films are formed by the alternate assembly of polycations and polyanions and represent an innovative strategy for engineering the cell surfaces at the molecular level. Cationic polymers, such as chitosan, poly-(allylamine hydrochloride), poly-L-lysine (PLL), and poly(ethyleneimine) (PEI), strongly interact with the negatively charged mammalian cell surface and have been widely used for this approach.
