The constructs, termed ‘medusoids’, were designed with computer simulations and experiments to match key determinants of jellyfish propulsion and feeding. Enter the era of synthetic physiology! Why not build a jellyfish from neonatal rat heart cells and some plastic? This is exactly what was accomplished in this study. jellyfish. This engineered jellyfish displays behavior such as propulsion and swimming when A tissue engineered jellyfish with biomimetic propulsion [1].

Provide sufficient details of any financial or non-financial competing interests to enable users to assess whether your comments might lead a reasonable person to question your impartiality. Because they use a muscle to pump their way through the water, their function—on a very basic level—is similar to that of a human heart, which makes the animal a good biological system to analyze for use in tissue engineering. A tissue-engineered jellyfish with biomimetic propulsion.

The combination of the engineering design algorithm with quantitative benchmarks of physiological performance suggests that our strategy is broadly applicable to reverse engineering of muscular organs or biomiimetic life forms that pump to survive. FeinbergSean P.
