Macromolecular cell surface engineering for accelerated and reversible cellular aggregation.

Amaral, A. J. ; Pasparakis, G. (2015)

We report the synthesis of two simple copolymers that induce rapid cell aggregation within minutes in a fully reversible manner. The polymers can act as self-supporting "cellular glues" or as "drivers" of 3D cell spheroids/aggregates formation at minute concentrations.
