Scientists at the University of Alabama (UA) have figured out a comical technique, developed human “zombie-like” cells that are technically no longer alive but with membranes continue to bind to useful compounds.

That leaves the cells with one useful ability: its walls are still able to interact with active compounds and fish out interesting compounds from hundreds found in a single natural sample.

The team is hoping the technique could expedite the process of weeding through thousands of compounds in a natural product from weeks if not months to just a few days.

“We have the receptor in its natural environment behaving the way it normally behaves in a cell,” said Lukasz Ciesla, assistant professor of biological sciences at UA who worked on the project.
