Hormonal Control of Manduca sexta Cell Culture for Bioactuator Applications

Jo, Jonathan Erin
2010

Bioactuators are robotic contractile elements that are powered by muscle cells. The motivation behind bioactuator research centers on the cells' natural contractile properties and the fact that they are a biodegradable organic system that runs primarily on glucose. Current bioactuator research is mainly focused on mammalian cells, but these cells are limited by their sensitivity to temperature, pH... read more
